Find the numbers

  • $\begingroup$ You say "find the number" in the question but in your comments you say there are multiple answers. You should specify this. $\endgroup$ – eye_am_groot Dec 5 '18 at 16:56

I think the answer is

5

Because

If we use Rot5 on the ciphered text it becomes "The answer is on this page"

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ There is another possible answer. find both possibilities $\endgroup$ – Quark-epoch Dec 5 '18 at 16:37
  • $\begingroup$ Of which you have already found one $\endgroup$ – Quark-epoch Dec 5 '18 at 16:39
  • $\begingroup$ Is S.M.'s the other possibility? $\endgroup$ – hexomino Dec 5 '18 at 16:40
  • $\begingroup$ No! its just logical and simple $\endgroup$ – Quark-epoch Dec 5 '18 at 17:17
  • $\begingroup$ @Quark-epoch I think the other intended answer is 21 as, when you encoded the string you will have chosen ROT21. You only select ROT5 when you want to unencrypt the text. $\endgroup$ – Gordon K Dec 6 '18 at 13:45

In rot5 this translates to "The answer is on this page" so my guess would be it's 76095, the only non-changeable number on the page (in the url)?

Edit: @hexomino's answer might make more sense, yeah.

If mine isn't correct, then taking hexomino's answer it would be:

5 and 13, since the url is still rot13.com and it's being translated through rot5.

  • $\begingroup$ Is it mine and @hexomino's? $\endgroup$ – S. M. Dec 5 '18 at 16:39
  • $\begingroup$ Well tried but it is a LITTLE different $\endgroup$ – Quark-epoch Dec 5 '18 at 17:10
  • $\begingroup$ In that case there are countless possibilities, if it's on the rot13 page, it could be anywhere from 1-25, besides the numbers that are in the source code, etc. If it's on this page there are many numbers as well, like the url, the date, your reputation, etc. If you could be a bit more clear on what you're looking for... $\endgroup$ – S.

    $\begingroup$ "this page " refers to the rot13 page $\endgroup$ – Quark-epoch Dec 5 '18 at 17:15
