    Not surprising.

    So, Wayne, what is the error in the op? It's the "its", isn't it?

    If you type "find the error, its impossible" into a google search, you get a ton of results. We've pretty much identified all of the issues. My 1718 is an additional issue, perhaps added accidentally in the typing.

    And it could be as simple as saying "it isn't impossible". The error is 1718 or it's anything else we came up with.

    Yep, it's "its." And the lack of a semicolon.

    Or maybe the biggest error is the fact that it is possible to find an error.

    Well, this has been fun.

    Where does the semicolon go? In front of the trailercolon? No. Really. Where?

    In place of the comma. It is a way of connecting two related but independent sentences into a single one.

    Thank goodness for a liberal arts education. Today it has paid off.

    With this step, since a=b, a-b=0, therefore you're dividing by zero. That's the error.

    Alright now, the 1718 is how it was typed in the email i received. I figured out that when someone gets beeks trying to figure out a riddle, it gets funny. Didn't take long for someone to get the answer.
