Tip: Maths won't help you with this one.
If you wish, you can substitute 75 for 57.

Hmm, ............ the plot thickens.

The encryption method is extremely simple and the first letter is already in plaintext (the character number that is). The plaintext is plain english. [79, 32, 79, 39, 45, 39, 112, 21, 50, 64, 37, 5, 107, 4, 36, 87, 35, 81, 48, 94, 57, 92, 46, 93, 125, 9, 102, 70, 42, 69, 51, 86, 92, 5, 106, 31, 63, 84, 58, 85, 34, 2, 118, 30, 123, 91, 41, 92, 48,

Hi Romos! I encrypted your answer and it revealed a spelling mistake. `-_-ยด
ROMOS

It has something to do with the sunglasses MCM. The sunglasses fall under 57, 18, 24. How can you not see it? :)

Bob/PKB

This makes no sense right now.
country bumpkin

LOL.....I typed 57 18 24 into my search bar and a bunch of sunglasses with polar vision popped up.
Bob/PKB

That's weird! I got lists of numbers that made me dizzy

I'm sorry i have a headache looking at all of Romos' numbers.  :)

....6 ?

57, 18, 24, 12

5+7=12, 1+8=9,  2+4=6, 1+2=3
