What 's Pythagoras' Phone Number?


The problem for last week offers a phone-number translation game. The same idea is used here, but now the given phone numbers translate into famous mathematicians' names. For example, 798-424-6727 is PYTHAGORAS' phone number!

Please refer to the directions in the problem for last week before taking on this challenge:

  • 272-446-3337
  • 276-556-6487
  • 346-742-6887
  • 534-266-2224
  • 733-722-7837
  • 523-766-8554
  • 436-747-6592
  • 786-5369
  • 227-3266
  • 562-7437
  • 553-7537
  • 733-7628
  • 234-2877
  • 445-2378
  • 527-5223
  • 463-9866
  • 272-7225
  • 624-6374
  • 437-6246
  • 497-2842
How did you do?

Answer: If you get overly frustrated with a specific phone number, send me an e-mail...perhaps I will share the name (if it is not intentionally unlisted!).
