    Took me less than 5 minutes. Thought too hard for a little bit and then kept thinking "pre-school". What relationship do these numbers have? Look at the answers, especially the odd one answer five. After that I just stared at it and the answer jumped out.

    OK so for those of you still struggling - maybe this'll help.... The answer is ..... 2 <--- answer here in white which is almost invisible - if you want to read it, click on the last . after the answer is and drag to the <

    For those of you who use oddball colour schemes so it stood out more - erm - sorry

    On another note - a genuine thanks to everyone who figured it out and DIDN'T post the answer - it's nice when people show more interest in letting others have a go than in trying to make themselves look clever by blurting the answer out!!!

    The proper way to do a spoiler tag in this situation would be to create a math problem that would result in the answer. Make it easy enough that it doesn't (also) stump the reader, but hard enough that it doesn't jump out at them without thought. That way if someone wants the answer, just solve the problem.

    I can clearly see the answer btw slave. Maybe my eyes are just really good at seeing white. lol

    Someone should let me know when it's appropriate to give a big hint and then I'll post a good one.

    I had to look up the answer after staring at it way too long. I feel really dumb now...

    As a programmer, my answer is 2581. The rest of the contents of the paper are irrelevant.

    No but I found it easiest to solve if I considered the difference between the numbers that equal 0 and all the others.
