Murder by Numbers

Murder by Numbers (2002)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Justin arrives home from school, Richard is on his bed wearing a black hooded top and long coat. The camera angle cuts to beside the bed, and Richard is only wearing the black hoodie (it goes just to his waist), then as he stands up he is wearing the long coat again.

Continuity mistake: When Richard hugs Justin as they are talking about evidence Justin is giving away to the police, Justin's head moves from on Richard's shoulder to buried in his chest and back.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Cass first goes through Carl Hudson's file, she is looking at pictures of Jane Doe. The pictures on the tabletop completely change between the first shot and the second, but the same paperwork is visible at the bottom of the screen both times so it's not two different areas.

Question: Could someone please explain what the title means and what numbers have to do with anything? I'm not a native English speaker and I don't get it.

Chosen answer: It's like a paint-by-numbers, where a picture is outlined on a board, and each little piece of it has a number corresponding to a different color of paint. You paint in the spaces based on what the numbers tell you. Murder by numbers refers to the boys following all the "rules" about how to create the perfect murder: choosing a victim at random, etc. They're murdering based on what they've been told is the right way to do it.
