# Talk:Largest five adjacent number

You say its 99638, but 9*9*9*9=6,561. So either the task description is crap or your ring implementation is.--Nigel Galloway (talk) 15:08, 27 September 2021 (UTC)

- Withholding judgement on whether (or what) is crap. It's random; if it didn't generate five 9s in a row then you won't get 99999. --Thundergnat (talk) 16:20, 27 September 2021 (UTC)

I would make it the first thousand digits of pi so all solutions have the same answer. As it is who can argue with any 5 digit number?--Nigel Galloway (talk) 17:40, 27 September 2021 (UTC)
