    SAT IIC (Math Subject Test) question

    This one is fun.

    The equation Clip.jpg produces the following (X, Y) coordinate pairs: (0, 2), (1, 7) and (2, 42). What is the value of abc?

    Don't care really.

    Just googled "a e neuman" (with quotes). Try it, results are quite interesting.

    BATcher. The SAT considers "abc" as the product of the three variables...and your (one) solution is correct.
