Round 301

I should be back here soon but can't spend too much time on it now... We will do a survey to see what answer you submitted last week. It may not be accurate but it's worth a shot...

302:

271 - 482 = 436

148 + 591 = 866

4881 + 8914 = 6562

8827 * 1178 = ?

Do NOT show your work; submit only a single number, with no punctuation, as your answer.

Hey... can someone help me out? i have no idea even where to START on this conumdrum... Thanks!

hmmm. I had a thought.

271 -> 2+7+1= 10 -> 1
482 -> 4+8+2= 5 -> 5
436 -> 4+3+6= 4 -> 4

then the difference between the 1 and 5 is 4, the answer to the "equation". It works that way with all of the 3 solved equations. But I am unsure about the 4th one.

I got: 8+8+2+7= 7
1+1+7+8= 8

so the difference is 1.

on other sites they are talking about codes

brianna said...

that's kinda what I originally thought, that's the numbers were for something else, like items. Like for the cooking pot, figure out what you got when you put two items together... but you can't subtract or multiply.

The Numbers Represent a Code. They are really " Placeholders" TNT used Numbers to confuse you.

So 1=2
2=3
3= 6
etc.

Ex. 271 - 482 = 436 is really 342 - 173 = 169

seals said...

I think that's confusing us even more....

animallover19941 said...

soo.... hummm... yah.. thats pretty confusing, can i get a bit more help please???

kelly said...

This is what the other sites are saying

271 - 482 = 436
BGA - DHB = DCF

342 - 173 = 169


148 + 591 = 866
ADH + EIA = HFF

217 + 582 = 799


4881 + 8914 = 6562
DHHA + HIAD = FEFB

1771 + 7821 = 9593


8827 * 1178 = YOUR ANSWER
HHBG * AAGH = DHBHIAFI

7734 * 2247 = 17378298

CODE: A B C D E F G H I J
CIPHER: 2 3 _ _ _ _ 4 _ _ _

I managed to pick up on majority of the numbers in the answer...

48_47_69

If anyone knows what the other two numbers are, that would be great! lol
