Math task for which they pay Big Money

Hello ! Can anyone solve such a difficult math task?

Cash reward $ 5,000,000

I think this problem can be solved by knowing the secrets of the protocol Diffie - Hellman.

Who has any ideas?

I have an idea. I'd find six smart people and have them each find one value, for which I'd pay them each \$500k, for a total if \$3M. Then I'd hand the six answers to the author of the challenge and collect my \$5M, making a cool \$2M profit without having to do any work.

And that's why capital always beats labor.
Thanks from topsquark

The promise of $5,000,000 and all I need to do is open a suspicious link. What could go wrong.

Great idea! But you need to find six smart people !!!

SDK nobody asks you to open.
There are only files from Python.

To obtain

Data values: ak = br; ax = bp;
Data values: ck = dr; cx = dp;
Data values: ek = fr; ex = fp;


I would like to know if this problem is solved or not? I try to solve it, but I encounter difficulties with division, since it uses the reverse module (minv). I would very much like to discuss this problem with professionals. I believe that there are certain methods that can be applied to solve. Would you like more information about such methods?

ak = br, ax = bp, ck = dr, cx = dp, ek = fr, ex = fp

a = b = c = d = e = f = k = p = r = x = N where N is any Number

AHEM!!

OK, I'll work on it and give you my answer, but I want to be assured of payment. First, would you please provide adequate evidence that you have obtained a letter of credit from a US bank for $5,000,000 along with the documentaion required to release the funds.

Don't bother, I solved the problem. Sadly, I cannot send my solution to the OP since I lack the funds to do so. I request the OP to send me $10,000 that I can use to write down the proper proof and acquire the means necessary to send it to the OP.

I heard that such problems are solved using "Back-Propagation Neural Networks".
Such a method reduces the number of variants in brute force by orders of magnitude.
