• At least one of the last two statements in this list is true.
• This is either the first true or the first false statement in the list.
• There are three consecutive false statements in this list.
• The difference between the numbers of the last true statement and first true statement is a factor of x.
• The sum of the numbers of the true statements equals x.
• This is not the last true statement.
• Each true statement's number is a factor of x.
• The percentage of true statements in this list equals x.
• The number of different factors of x [not counting 1 and x] is greater than the sum of the numbers of the true statements
• No three consecutive statements in this list are all true.
Find x.

So it looks like I had paradoxes on the mind when drafting that post. What I meant (in each of the three mentions of the word paradox) was contradiction. I hate when I read through one of my posts and find misused words. Too bad I'm no longer a VIP or I'd be able to fix them.

Edit: Hey, I'm a VIP again, thanks rookie1ja.
