 Puzzle ID: #21288 Fun: (2.06) Difficulty: (2.98) Category: Math Submitted By: CPlusPlusMan

While on your interplanetary vacation, you decide to stop at the planet Quocorri, a planet known for its many mathematical achievements.

While there, you decide to pick up on some of the Quocorrians mathematical variations. The Quocorrians won't tell you exactly how it works, only that it has some relationship to the Standard English math. They also give you four, true, Quocorrian math problems. They are:

2+2=9
4*1=1
5-2=16
-3+2=64

So, according to this system, what is 6/2?

 spongewrestler Mar 02, 2005 Good one ben2 Mar 09, 2005 are all of those smileys really necessary Tammy93 Mar 11, 2005 yes, to show my pleasure with it. MJ_fan Mar 15, 2005 wow, that is complicated CPlusPlusMan Mar 25, 2005 I do not appreciate that feeble attempt at humor, or whatever it may be in the comments of my teaser. Please restrain your immaturity, folks shenqiang Oct 02, 2005 -3+2 should be (+3-2-3)^2=4? paul726 Dec 10, 2005 We don't appreciate the feeble attempt at a teaser. You can introduce all kinds of complexity, but if there's not a reasonable expectation to be able to solve it with some math skills, it's rather pointless. sugarnspice4u7 Dec 27, 2005 tonjawithaj Jun 15, 2006 interesting...i'm completely flummoxed by this one...(or was until I read the answer! :lol EnderofGames Mar 13, 2007 Wow that was hard. How hard was it to make this? vg674 Feb 14, 2008 I didn't find that too hard or too easy. The first thing I noticed before even looking at the problem was that all of the solutions were perfect squares. I then took the square roots of each of them and attempted to find a half decent solution that worked for all of them. Good puzzle.
