Hi,

There's been some derailing happening here, beginning in post #479 (that seems to have been influenced by #478) - where the answer was 1 less than a multiple of 99 - followed by the interesting goings-on from posts #526 to #531 that was the start of all subsequent answers being 1 greater than a multiple of 99.

60687 corrects that.

Also, if we want to align with the '13' thread where the number of entries = the number of posts, then we need to do some catch-up:

60786

60885

60984

6+0+9+84=**99**
