What's Pythagorus' Phone Number? (Part III)


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:

  • 532-2649
  • 783-3464
  • 526-5924
  • 764-7766
  • 265-9266
  • 266-2487
  • 227-5953
  • 252-2624
  • 228-2526
  • 222-9539
  • 342-5866
  • 743-6266
  • 622-6867
  • 276-2273
  • 322-7826
  • 937-6356
  • 787-7355
  • 444-2739
  • 968-7663
How did you do? The last one was tricky...?

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!).
