PyHash Questions
Google/translate0Thank You!0Good Post!0Bad Post! link
Hi, on challenge:

a number > 31337.0 is required. and 72258202379729527373824.0 is a valid one but it says that "Your answer seems wrong!".

Are we looking for the smallest number > 31337 that satisfies the condition?

Greetings,
xseris

I guess that's a good idea. Also i am disappointed by the python type system...

Quite ambiguous challenge. We are suppsed to find certain value? What should the representation of the number be? Should it be integer? I can find quite a lot of numbers that fit the spec...

Yeah, it is indeed a bit ambigous and "crappy"
I assumed one would try to calculate a number that fits.
Try integers.

If you try the first obvious number that fits, you get a message that a bigger number is required.
Now try to calculate the next number that would work.

I am sorry for the confusion.
The challenge solution got changed, as i made a mistake in my calculations.

Also, in the code, "float" has been changed to "int".
I only wanted to point out that whole float number hashes are identical to their int partners.

Thanks to tehron for the fixes \o

Tanks for the clarification and for revisiting your calculations! Beyond the working floating point cited in the first post (that still produces 31337 as hash) I was also trying the integer solution without success till today. Now it works!
