There are a few hundred numbers I could derive from this by equally rational means. I'm going to need a more exact goal than "it is a number", unless you'd like me to list all of them.

@fishpreferred I'm sure you can, but they won't fit the clue. Use the clue in quotes at the start to figure it out. The first sentence tells you what to do. The second sentence is mostly confirmation / a small second step.

I've used this puzzle on 2 different forums previously and it's been solved. So I'm sure someone here can solve it (and my others), too.

A hint for riddle #1: Use a well known sequence.

Hi, it's me... Ugh, got bored and checked out ag. Cool riddle, I'll give it a shot. Although it seems more like a puzzle than a riddle.

I haven't seen an answer submitted from @Gantic, although he can't win any prizes

@Qnopsik is the first person to submit a correct answer. I've had 1 other very, very close submission and 1 submission that's on the path.

I'll post up another one after I get 2 more correct submissions.

@Gantic "This one's pretty easy. "

But what if it's not, and your answer isn't even close :P
You can't be sure unless you check it :P
