are you sure.. its 3 digit?.. b'cos as per the clue.. "The mystery number has a 7 in the thousandths place"...

Excelchat Expert
10/11/2017 - 01:31

Excelchat Expert

0.247?

Yes but does the result number of 0.247 times 100 have a 4 in the ones place

Excelchat Expert
10/11/2017 - 01:37

24.7

Excelchat Expert
10/11/2017 - 01:38

0.247 * 100 = 24.7... so 4 is in ones place..

Excelchat Expert
10/11/2017 - 01:38

7 in the thousandths place... in decimal system.. it is 3rd number after decimal

Excelchat Expert
10/11/2017 - 01:38

so remaining 2 will come 1st
