Let the 5 digits of the pin be a, b, c, d & e.

From the given statements we can write the following;

1) The 1st digit is a square of the 2nd

a = b^2

2) The sum of the 2nd and 3rd is 10

b + c = 10

3) The 4th is equal to the 2nd plus 1

d = b + 1

4) The 3rd and the 5th makes 14

c + e = 14

5) The sum of all the digits is 30

a + b + c + d + e = 30.

Let’s solve the first 4 equations to represent all letters in terms of b;

The 1) already is;

a = b^2. —- (6)

From 2) we can write;

c = 10 – b —- (7)

3) is already

d = b + 1 —- (8)

From 4) we can write;

e =14 – c —- (9)

From (7)

e = 14 – (10 – b) = 14 – 10 + b;

e = 4 + b —- (10)

Now substituting all the values in 5) we get;

a + b + c + d + e = 30.

b^2 + b + (10 – b) + (b + 1) + (4 + b) = 30

Solving this we get;

b^2 + 2b + 15 = 30

b^2 + 2b – 15 = 0

(b – 3)(b + 5) = 0

So b is either equal to 3 or -5;

Pin cannot be negative so;

**b = 3**

Now we can find all the other letters as;

a = b^2 = 3^2 = 9 9

**a = 9**

c = 10 – b = 10 – 3 = 7

**c = 7 **

d = b + 1 = 1 3 + 1 = 4

**d = 4**

e = 4 + b = 4 + 3 = 7

**e = 7**

So the **pin is 93747**
