Just for fun, try solving this.

**# 1**

Find numbers **x** & **y** such that they satisfy:

**a)** y / x = c

**b)** (y + 1) / (x + 1) = k

**c)** (y + 2) / (x + 2) = q

x, y c, k & q are positive integers. Also,

c - k = 2^8

k - q = (2^8) - 1

I should say it's not so much the answer as how the numbers align to create such a pattern that I find interesting.

Cheers to

cevi who got the answer first.
