Question for math and algorithm lovers. Below 11 rows of digits.

89173 = A49E41E511 ?
30341 = A2D250E6CE ?
15629 = 06E6889AC5 ?

73417 = 1C4D9C5503
00788 = C979A44131
36691 = BC3ADB7339
63717 = 39A8ADA3EA
81078 = AF5289DAA7
30881 = 80F099B9C8
04152 = CC849610ED
05383 = 106B4AD31F

On the left is a sequence of 5 digits and on the right are 10 Alphanumeric characters passwords, that generated based on these 5 digits.(digits on the left are the last 5 digits of the serial numbers) Is it possible to find and recover the algorithm that was used to generate these passwords? (I assume its not complex) I added a question mark to the first 3 lines since I’m not 100% sure they’re correct, but most likely they’re all correct too. Does this require a supercomputer or that's a rather trivial task for mathematics?

    $\begingroup$ Interesting question, but not really Mathematica related. This might be helpful: If we interpret the passwords as HexIntegers, and sort by the input digit, we have {{788, 865329234225}, {4152, 878397755629}, {5383, 70519542559}, {15629, 29637515973}, {30341, 699313219278}, {30881, 553792420296}, {36691, 808441312057}, {63717, 247643087850}, {73417, 121561175299}, {81078, 753004042919}, {89173, 707029755153}} . I am not sure how to attack this however. I am not sure what site to recommend for this however, maybe puzzles? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @David G. Stork, if this question has nothing(?) to do with Mathematics, can you point what area it relates to? $\endgroup$
