Anyone with enough knowledge of math could read all of the posts in this thread so far, and immediately know the answer. The answer is much simpler than you might think. (So it the process of getting the answer)

No, we haven't given up. We just think a hint would be in order.

The answer has already been seen, just not recognized. Think Numbers. Also, there's a friend you may not have consulted yet.

Is that enough?

How much math are you talking about here? Counting? Addition and subtraction? Differential calculus?

convert the letters to there numerical equivalent - a=1, b=2, c=3, etc. so 1,2,2,4,2,4,2,4,6,2,6,4,2,4,6,6. these numbers represent the difference between the first 17 prime numbers

Solved by plainglazed.

The letters once converted to their placement values in the alphabet, they represent the prime gaps (difference between two consecutive prime numbers). This series was simply the for first 17 primes (which is also a prime... I am SO clever

)

for contributing!

Lol nope.

I have no idea what you did there. Care to explain the logic behind your answer?

Just added all the letters as hexadecimal values. The total is c9(h) which is 201(decimal)

It's strange how often these types of puzzles seem so impossible when you don't know the answer and so easy when you do. Good puzzle!
