Gaaaah! Stupid question.

RobR:
Sorry to post such a stoopid question here, but I need some help. I'm getting bogged down on a calculation and I can't wrap my head around it.

Basically I need to do the following mapping.

14 -> 69
15 -> 69
16 -> 69
17 -> 69
18 -> 73
19 -> 73
20 -> 73
21 -> 73
22 -> 77
23 -> 77
24 -> 77
25 -> 77
26 -> 81
27 -> 81
28 -> 81
29 -> 81

etc etc.

I know there must be a function where fn(x) = y, and it's probably really simple, but I just can't see it.

Currently I have a switch case which is ugly as fuck.

HELP!

See, I knew it was simple. Thanks Perspective. Have a virtual beer.

Just out of interest, what was your approach, or was it obvious?

Six minutes, twenty two seconds is pretty impressive.


Mostly for being on esink and seeing the question that quickly. ;)

The output increments in groups of 4.  So, 4 inputs go to the same output.  So for me that indicates a modulus operation.  With some math to get the initial values lined up.
