Post Small error in special 30/12/2013
In the cage 625^ (a4:a6,b6) the check does only seem to be performed for 3 digits, i.e. 5^2^2^X and 5^4^1^X are shown to be correct regardless of the value of X (which should be equal to 1 of course). [confused]

5^2^2^X shows an error except for X = 1 (as expected)

5^4^1^X works because 1^X = 1

(also see the note below the puzzle: "Note: evaluation is right to left")
