Help - Brain Teaser
Hello fellow puzzle solvers

I saw this puzzle the other day that grabbed my interesting but I have no idea how to solve it.

Puzzle Name - Another Carton

It has been reasonably argued that the treasure will NOT be found at any of the following coordinates

489655,128130

428381,114675

415036,081417

491577,076983

536983,113546

537217,107324

549104,095872

520791,092151

600442,086228

611829,123643

672468,119756

664513,090893
The above are sets of Co-ordinates but I have no idea what 'reasonably argued' means.

Any pointers greatfully accepted

Thanks!

Reasonably argued sounds like conjectures or intelligent guesses.

Ahh - intelligent is where I probably fall down

Anyone got any suggestions?

Yes: post the puzzle IN FULL, or give us a site where we can see the darn thing!
Like, what is supposed to be done?
All we have is a list of coordinates, the word "carton" (what's that?) and no question...

This is all I have - I need to work out where the treasure is.

I have heard of geocaching but never done it. Presumably there is either a clue in the wording/numbers of the problem itself (I do not see one off hand), or you will find clues at the given coordinates.

Hi everyone

So I have being doing some research and have found out the puzzle has something to do with Number Theory. And that the Theory may or may not be an anogram of Another Carton.

Anyone have any thoughts??

Really want to solve this one :-)

So an anogram of Carton is Cantor as in the famous mathmatician.

I have been told that is on the right track so I tried his Diagonal Theory on the numbers I have but it does not give me the correct location.

Any Thoughts?
