    The question is, King, did you deduce that logically by figuring out a pattern that fits every number on there and then applying it to 2581, like I did? Or did you guess something that seemed right? :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

    ... :'(

    EDIT: Nah I tried using a pattern. Tried being the word that needs a lot of emphasis.

    *Claps for those figuring it out without using this or google* ^^

    Truth be told there are two ways to solve this problem. And a kindergartener might figure out this faster than a math professor.

    2 ways? I feel like I went the kindergartener route... <_<

    This reminds me of the "cosmic numbers" riddle, though.

    Ah God.. after examining the millionth crazy insert-random-operators-at-random-places idea, I just saw the "pattern". I might have continued for hours.
