That's a great question! Did anyone try??

I am not a math person, but would it have taken a mathematician to figure out the code??

I am not a "mathy" person either, but not sure if it was math.

I just know I couldn't figure out how it was done. :)

Maybe a better ending for me, was for Eva to tell them the code!

I know about the Fibonacci sequence from The da Vinci Code, but I didn't even try to figure out the math. That's the beauty of being older: I don't have to if I don't want to!

I agree with jeannew. I'm a math lover, but I was too engrossed in the story itself (and a bit lazy) to actually figure it out. I keep thinking I might go back to it just for the challenge (lol), and then I think maybe tomorrow!

I agree with Nelle. I kept thinking, maybe tomorrow. However, I did find it ingenious.

It didn't interest me to try to figure it out. I've heard Kristin explain it during virtual events a couple of times and never really understood it. I'm glad there are people smarter than me that can think up things like this.

I couldn’t figure it out either. I missed her explanations, but it definitely was brilliant, gaylamath. :)
