# Puzzle cache question

I'm working on a puzzle cache and I'm having problems with the way the cache owner says to figure out the coords.

The question (verbatim) for finding one of the coords is: Gotham City is E + 1 miles from Batcave?

distance = E + 1 or E = distance + 1

inquiring minds want to know...

The first. Put another way, E is one less than the number of miles from the Batcave to Gotham City.

I agree with Fuzzy.

`Gotham = E + 1Gotham - 1 = EGotham - E = 1`

Just e-mail Zepyrus directly and ask him.

When in doubt, poke it with a stick.

Walking or riding?

Yeah, I emailed him already, but we don't seem to be communicating :-). I'm trying to figure out without having him tell me directly if I have the right answer to the question...

If the answer I found several places online is correct (14 miles from the batcave to Gotham City) and if he's using the first equation, then the cache is several miles out in the Atlantic. I don't think so! Either my answer is wrong or we're getting the coordinate from the answer in different ways.

I think the first equation is correct, but being a newbie, thought I'd ask to see if I was doing it wrong.

Thanks.
