nope, there is none.. As any number will come down to a length below 100 and we have already proofed that all numbers end in 4 .. voila, proofed

I can't completely disagree, but... just a quick example of a number whose length is > 100
 Code:
;888,888,888,888
? len("eight hundred eighty eight billion, eight hundred eighty eight million, eight hundred eighty eight thousand, eight hundred eighty eight")

135
edit: or 114, less the commas and spaces

Yeah but isn't 132 simply One Hundred Thirty Two which is back to less than 100?

four wouldn't be magic if it there was a number that wouldn't come down to it and as four is magic, all numbers have to end there. simple as that.

Fun, but I obviously don't have my head wrapped around minimalist programming. \:\)


Thanks!

Big thanks to everyone who did all the hard work and let me weasel my way to the top of the public round and take the glory in the dying minutes.

I blame my appointment to a management position, it's created a monster mwahahahaha.

For fun... using Num2Text() - http://www.kixtart.org/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=202256#Post202256

Practically any number can be used, but must be in quotes once the numbers get sufficiently big enough.

 Code:
  break on
  $RC=setoption("WrapATEOL","ON")
  $RC=setoption("Explicit","ON")

  dim $i,$len

  $i="888888888888"

  if $i<>4
    ? "" + $i + " is "
    $len=len(replace(num2text($i)," ",""))
    while $len<>4
      "" + $len + ". " + $len +  " is "
      $len=len(replace(num2text($len)," ",""))
    loop
    "4. "
  endif
  "4 is magic."


Outputs

888888888888 is 114. 114 is 20. 20 is 6. 6 is 3. 3 is 5. 5 is 4. 4 is magic.
