These numbers seem off base...





Hint 1

Check the numbers present here and remember the mention to bases

Hint 2

If you got some letters out of the numbers above you will notice you got something similar to full words but with 2 letters missing. Maybe that is what you should focus now


Converting from Decimal (base 10) to Hex (base 16) we get

3057515214 = B63DFACE 

3203718446 = BEF4DD2E

3737643614 = DEC7EA5E

4025600712 = EFF1CAC8

Each line is actually a full word with 2 letters missing

B63DFACE = BolDFACE  - ol 

BEF4DD2E = BEFuDDlE  - ul

DEC7EA5E = DECrEAsE  - rs

EFF1CAC8 = EFFiCACy - iy

olulrsiy is an anagram for illusory. It is also possible to obtain the owrd by ordering the letters using the numbers they replaced. So o is 6th , l is the 3rd , etc.  leads to Harassment
