    I'm guessing it's the one number which includes the 10 basic numbers (0-9), and which is divisible by each of of those numbers (other than 0). (I haven't checked the latter yet, but it appears likely.)

    Edit: Nope, not divisible by 7.

      That was on an IQ test I took once. I got it pretty easily, because so many other questions on it made you think the same way (out of the (numbers) box).

              Here's a clue: Marlow was capable of solving it. :wink:

              (I've seen this before like Marlow, though not in an IQ test.)

                    Without looking at the bottom of this thread it is the digits in alphabetical order.

                        Yes, thank you.

                        I owe it all to the Incredible Dr. Matrix.

                          Here's a fun one. Do the following division:

                          987654321 / 123456789

                          In physics, we call this "fine tuning."

                              8.00 ... In all sincerity, what is the significance of this number?
