### Julianthemath's discovery 5

1. Think of a number between 1 and 1000.
2. Divide that by 6. Don't care about the remainder, if any.
3. Divide it again by 6. Also don't mind the remainder.
5. Multiply that by your number in step 3.
6. If it's bigger than 777,777,777,777, divide it by 123.
7. If bigger still than 777,777,777,777, divide it by 246.
8. If still, divide by 369. If it is still bigger than 777,777,777,777, just add 123 to the dividend, then divide it to the number.
9. If it is now smaller than 777,777,777,777, and not sure if it is a Squimintrius number, apply the second sentence of Rule 8.
10. If it is smaller than 1000, subtract it by 50. Then, 75, 100, 125... till you reach 50 below. If it is negative, remove the + sign.

If you got a Squimintrius number, square it.
That is called a Squisquaretrius number.

If not, don't do anything. Try again until you get one.
Good luck in solving!

Good thinking, you must have a very active brain

You have something better than a Squisquaretrius number?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
