Think about it: and MD5 is 128 bits long.

If you take the MD5 of a 256GB file, it is still 128 bits long. How would you re-generate the missing data? (if you could do it, pattent it quickly - that kind of compression is worth a

*)*

**fortune**If you need to go both ways, you need an encryption algorithm instead.

Given that the answer is 2, find the pair of numbers "x" and "y" that I was originally thinking of. I will give you a clue: both numbers are less than 10 to the power 17841.
