I won £10 on the lotto with three correct numbers (in the range 1 to 49).
I then calculated the difference between two six-figure numbers: one formed by writing my three winning numbers in descending order; the other by writing them in ascending order. I multiplied this difference by three and divided the answer by the sum of my winning numbers. I then divided the new answer by one of my winning numbers. The answer was another of my three winning numbers.
What, in ascending order, were my three winning numbers?
