As I searched for different topics on Google, my whole screen suddenly went black and gave me this letter:
Dear Reader, if you have come across this message, you may be applicable for the CIA. We are looking for some of the best mathematicians in the world. We think you might be one. To confirm your skills, we require that you decode this message: 30 265 75 5 340 . (d) (e) 135 40 (d) (e) = (t) 220 (e). Only the best mathematicians are able to decode this. If you can solve it, write back to us, and we will proceed with the next steps.
NOTE: The period and equals sign are included in the final message; they don't have anything to do with the decoding.
Divide all numbers by something that they are all divisible by.
Hint 2 (use after 1):
Use PT to change the numbers into one letter or two letters.
Hint 3 (use after 2):
Combine all the letters to form one string!
NOTE: The back story is fictional.
Next Part: Part #2.
