  1. Hey zule, Nice job! You're almost there. All the assumptions you made about the small symbols and the functions D() and S() are correct. Only for T() you haven't found the correct function, btw 9 to the third power is 729. Koko
  2. Here's another clue: The big circles stand for triangular numbers. So a big triangle with number 9 inside would stand for the 9th triangular number, which is 45. (1-3-6-10-15-21-28-36-45) Now all you have to do is find out what the other symbols stand for. The small symbols are all numbers in the range 0-10. Koko
  3. Squares: 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 ... etc Cubes: 1 8 27 64 125 216 343 ... etc Fibonacci: 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 ... etc Triangular Numbers: 1 3 6 10 15 21 28 ... etc So, if s = 7, d = 2 and t = 5 and C() would be Fibonacci(), then the following equation could be made C(d) + t + C(s) = 19, because Fibonacci(2) = 1, t = 5 and Fibonacci(7) = 13, 1 + 5 + 13 = 19.
  4. You're absolutely right, it should be C(s)+C(t)+c = 21. And yes, symbols standing next to each other always have to be added, no subtracting. There is enough information available, you just have to work it out step by step. When you try each of the following functions for C() there aren't gonna be a whole lot of possibilities for which you can solve the three equations. (s+s+s+t+d = 19, C(s)+C(t)+c = 21, C(d)+t+C(s) = 19) C() could be Square(), Cube(), SquareRoot(), Fibonacci() or TriangularNumber(). You may have to use other functions for S(), D() and T(), but the function for C() is in this list above. When you have found a set of solutions for these three equations you can then move on to to the next equations. Obviously, there is only one solution possible! Good luck! Koko
  5. Nobody seems to have been able to solve this puzzle yet. Maybe I should give another clue. It is the most efficient to start with the equations with the numerical values: s+s+s+t+d = 19, C(s)+C(d)+c = 21, C(d)+t+C(s) = 19. c = cirlce, s = square, t = triangle, d = diamond. The small symbols all stand for distinct non-negative integers. Now, if you can find out which of the previously mentioned functions the C() stands for, you might also be able to find out what the S(), T() and D() stand for and solve the final equation. If anyone needs more help, please feel free to ask. Koko
  6. Maybe it's a little too hard. Let me help you on the way a bit. Example: From the solutions to the upper left-most equations, you could deduce that symbols standing next to each other have to be added, since 19 is a prime number. Then if you choose the following values for the small square, triangle and diamond, square = 1, triangle = 10, diamond = 6, the upper left-most equation is solved. Moving on to the equation below that one. If you choose the Fibonacci function for the big circles, you get Fib(6) + 10 + Fib(1) = 19, which is correct as well, since Fib(6) yields 8 and Fib(1) = 1. Of course this isn't the correct solution, I'm just showing you how it might be done. The big symbols could stand for all kinds of functions, e.g. squares, cubes, square roots, prime numbers, triangular numbers, factorials, etc. Koko
  7. All the letters of each word add up to 72, using the following table: A=1, B=2, C=3, ... , Z=26. E.g.: AMULET = 1 + 13 + 21 + 12 + 5 + 20 = 72
  8. Who can solve this puzzle? You have to find the missing numerical value in the equations below. The small symbols are integers and the big symbols (with small symbols inside them) stand for functions or series.
