Hi phrontister;

It sure should have. I changed it to the correct answer. 3 lines of measly code and still there are bugs in it!

7^3+2 x 19^3+24^3+25^3+87^2+88^2+90^2+93^2+107^2 = 87021

Hi Bobby,

Kill those bugs and bye-bye measles. Shouldn't be too hard to 'spot' (sic) the flaw.

The product of the digits of the prime factorization of 88308 = 432...and 432/4-3²=99

399^2+101^2+103^2+105^2+113^2+120^2 = 88407

88 + 40 - 7 is darn close to 99

So is 8+84+0+7.

The product of the digits of the prime factorization of 88506 = 1944 ... and ... 1+√9+4!x4=99
