What's Pythagoras' Phone Number? (Part II)


A previous mathematicians puzzle offered a phone-number translation game. The same idea is used again here. For example, 798-424-6727 is PYTHAGORAS' phone number!

Please refer to the directions in a previous problem of the week before taking on this challenge. Also, these are a little harder...perhaps:

  • 629-9676
  • 667-3763
  • 248-7838
  • 732-6733
  • 592-5547
  • 489-4367
  • 422-7769
  • 587-834-6335
  • 446-7737
  • 663-8437
  • 227-2688
  • 548-4664
  • 926-4326
  • 776-2587
  • 542-9926
  • 542-9426
  • 222-2243
  • 222-8249
  • 368-7437
  • 288-7464
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!).
