The math on this question doesn’t work for me. End-to-end for question #5 was a three digit number. Stacking should result in a smaller number (in km) than end-to-end. Either the clue should be a combination of some of these numbers, or the question should be in meters, not km.
197 km, or 197438 m
Thanks Cathy! We had a typo which thankfully will not affect any of the guesses above. We have corrected the question from KM to reflect M – as was intended by the digit clue. Thank you for being so math-minded and for notifying us immiediately.
I agree with Cathy…the math is not logical…so my answer is….
139.847 km OR 139 km and 847 m. (!!!!)
Thanks Kathryn. Just corrected as your comment came in. All guesses above, your included are valid. We are simply using the 6 digits guess in METERS.
fifteen million four hundred thousand
15 400 000
I mean 984, 731
178 439 m
