hi SaltnPepper

Welcome to the forum.

The word 'product' is used to mean multiply numbers together such as:

eg. What is the product of 5 and 16? Answer 5 x 16 = 80

So maybe this means work out 147 x 11.

Uhm, just wondering. Does this '147 caption' have anything to do with the mob attack at that university located somewhere in North eastern Kenya?

Hi math9maniac ....

Not sure with what do you mean ? This question started from the game called Geocaching. Where you must find the answer from their puzzle, they give you some puzzle n questions, and if you can solved it correctly, then it will lead you to the right coordinates to find your cache. This time the cache is located at Rodd Park, Sydney, NSW.

But anyway, me and my husband already found the answer and got the cache.

Thanks for the members that try to answer and help us.

Cheers,

There were more questions to get the coordinates. But only one question that I didn't understand, which was "product by eleven"

Other questions such like I must add some hexadecimal number, and that must collected few numbers on the poles at that Park, etc

But it's fun (at least for us)

Oh ok. Hi SaltnPepper. Thanks for the clarification. I was actually talking about an attack of a certain university by some terrorists in which a total of 147 students perished. Sorry for any confusion caused.

Cheers, math9maniac.
