Which you would have known if you'd bothered to read this! I'm sorry this seems a little rude, but I'm amazed at how many people go through the trouble of registering just to post a solution, yet won't go through the trouble of reading what's already been posted about the puzzle. ------------------ Gravity is a harsh mistress

Let's say you got a reading of 147. Sure, you've proven vaults 1 and 2 hold counterfeits, but how can you tell which of vaults 5, 6, or 7 holds the final set?
