Here's how to do it. Get the previous player's number, evaluate the operation she or he left in the post and associate that number with something else. State also another operation involving your number. Example:

Player A: 1: Number of Earths in the Solar System. 1+2*4
Player B: 9: Number of lives cats are believed to have. 9+sqrt25
Player C: 14: Number of years the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom lasted. 14/2*100+21-10
Player D: 711: A convenience shop! 711-611

If the operation does not result in an integer, simply round it off to the nearest integer.

I'll start with 21.

21: Amount per cent of oxygen in air. 21-4

Edit: Oops! Thanks!

kitty, you're supposed to round OFF, not round DOWN. Can you edit your post? (If you don't, I'm sure a mod will ...)

Well, I mean sqrt, but -/ was the closest I had lol.

20- 5 less than 5 by 5, or 5/5 less than 5/5*5.

20*7

Try the character set accessory or MS Word or something next time.

140. The number of days in, uh, 20 weeks.

140x1.1 - 1. I'll be impressed if anyone guesses the reference I'm thinking of.

256 - the number of values a byte represents.

Please use the reference I'm thinking of - pretty obvious which one.
