    the rule is....

    Ok I won't give away the rule,

    but K = 10^10^10^34

    and Z = 0

    I was going to ask if a bajillion was a number, but ah well..

    I will note, however, that M = 1,000,000 (10^6) and not 106. A fairly obvious typo to me, but perhaps that helps.

    Be it noted that you, sir, have one sadistic friend..

    (Just looking over the numbers again, but wouldn't E=1?)

    I also make one other note with regards to this problem.

    If Z = 0, then I submit that that might change 3 of the other values as well, in order to be consistent.

    Ah, I got it now.

    Yes, looking back, E = 0 or at least 1, but not 3

    A = 101
