(Or you could scroll down to read the solution!) If this puzzle had an answer, it would be a nine-letter word, although like most of mathematics, it’s less about the answer than about the path you take to get there…2017 edit: A warning that this has somewhat linkrotted and is harder to solve, but theoretically still possible.
