More examples...

2+1=103
9+7=216
8+5=313

Just because you figured out Part 1, that doesn't mean that you actually answered Part 2.  I don't want to tell too much because that would be giving away the answer.

The way this problem was originally proposed to me was starting with the question in Part 2 first.  That makes the problem a little more challenging.

It is not impressive to simply know the answer.  It is more impressive to be able to solve it.  Showing a completed 10,000 piece puzzle is not impressive if you didn't put it together yourself.  The same thing goes for many things in life.  Showing me a great art piece is fine, but that doesn't make you impressive  or a genius.  The person who made the art is impressive and a genius.

Or, think of it this way....

You have a math book.  The book comes with an answer guide.  Just because you have all the answers, that does not make you good at the math that is in the book.

I remember those several times where you couldn't think logically. Dont you remember when we went to school together and you had to do a math problem on the board?

Hint: 12 and 11 is just one possible answer.  There is more than one answer.  You're supposed to find all possible answers.

I figured as much. But all I can think of now is how many points will my RB's get me this Sunday?

I'll revisit this later today.

I think I have it.

In X + XX = 123, 123 dictates the value X and XX in only part A or SUBTRACTION. The value of X and XX remain as they are for part B ADDITION.

Since 123 = 3 digits = hundreds. Should 2 digits = tens?

(X*100)+(X*100)=123
1200+1100=123
1200-1100=100 SUBTRACTION
Overall 100+23=123

Examples;

2+1=103
103= 3 digits = hundreds
200-100=100
2+1=3
100+3=103

SO...
5+1=46
46= 2 digits= tens
50-10=40
5+1=6
40+6=46 « Last Edit: September 09, 2016, 12:17:50 PM by lexicon »

So a friend at work posed this question to us.  Apparently you need a high IQ to figure this out.  I got it pretty quick, and some people were impressed.  That being said, I don't think the problem requires genius intellect.  They probably would have figured it out as well if given enough time.  Anyways, here is the problem...

7+6=113
8+5=313
9+2=711

What's the pattern?  Can you figure it out?

7+6 = 113 (1 = 7-6, 13 = 7+6)
8+5 = 313 (3 = 8-5, 13 = 8+5)
9+2 = 711 (7 = 9-2, 11 = 9+2)

continuing pattern:

5+2 = 37
6+4 = 210
7+6 = 113
8+8 = 016
