   the numbers are:  3.2  16  18

   the math is:  16 / 3.2 = spf(spf(spf(18)))

   observe...
      spf(n)  = sum of the prime factors of 'n'
      spf(18) = 8      [2 + 3 + 3]
      spf( 8) = 6      [2 + 2 + 2]
      spf( 6) = 5      [2 + 3]

   if . is a delimiter, then the numbers are:  16  18  3  2

   the math is:  sqrt(sqrt(16)) * 3^2 = 18

   observe...
      sqrt(16) = 4
      sqrt( 4) = 2
      3^2 = 3 * 3 = 9
      2 * 9 = 18

   [solve for 'n']  sqrt(sqrt(16)) = 18 / n
