  • Hey guys,

    I've tried to decrypt it by reversing the logic in the script but am so far only getting garbage.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    This shouldn't be this hard....

  • I got stuck for a while on trying to reverse the equation, as there is no way to reverse a mod to get back to the original value. Find another way. Good python exercise!

  • My first ever encryption task, took quite some time for me (2 hours) to do, but was a fun one

    the equation can be reversed

  • Solved it! There's no shortcut secret hint for this. It's manual labor of doing basic math on a piece of paper to reverse the equations. No online automated tools or COPY+PASTE functions to help.
  • I ended up using Excel to solve this, was immensely satisfying to watch the program execute.
