# Prize crossnumber, Issue 07

Win £100 of Maths Gear goodies by solving our famously fiendish crossnumber

Our original prize crossnumber is featured on pages 52 and 53 of Issue 07.

Clarification: Added “non-zero” to clues 10A, 19D.
Clarification: For 20D, 0 is not a factor of any number, so the number contains no 0s.

### Rules

• Although many of the clues have multiple answers, there is only one solution to the completed crossnumber. As usual, no numbers begin with 0. Use of Python, OEIS, Wikipedia, etc. is advised for some of the clues.
• One randomly selected correct answer will win a £100 Maths Gear goody bag. Three randomly selected runners up will win a Chalkdust t-shirt. The prizes have been provided by Maths Gear, a website that sells nerdy things worldwide, with free UK shipping. Find out more at mathsgear.co.uk
• To enter, submit the sum of the across clues via this form by 1 August 2018. Only one entry per person will be accepted. Winners will be notified by email and announced on our blog by 19 August 2018.
