The Quest of the Prime Pirate's Treasure

Math Masters: Guardians of the Numiverse

Hello Math Masters! This is Commander Williams, your supervising officer. There is a very important matter that must be addressed immediately. There are reports out of the Square Root Sea that there has been a recent increase in pirate activity. I know I do not need to tell you why this is such a large issue, but if the trade of exponents is shut down it will hurt the numeric economy greatly. I need your group to investigate what has caused the increase in pirate activity. If you are able to solve the problem please do so. I have arranged transport to the Integer Islands where you can begin your search. Good luck Masters!
