99 + 9 = 9 ?

If you rewrite this...

99 is 9 * 11

9 is 9 * 1

Therefore,

9 * 11 + 9 * 1 = 9 ?

- 9 * (11 + 1) = 9 ?

- 9 * 12 = 9 ?

- ? = * 12

The answer is obviously 'I'

Assuming any base 20 or higher.

example 99+9 base 20 =198 (189+9)

198 dec to base 20 is 9I

therefore 9-99=98= +_8x to the 9th

times pi plus using the quadratic formula

1+0+8=9

Druail said...

no, The way it looks it's asking if 99+9=9. I hope we all know what the sum of 99 and 9 are.

Sir said...

Im not sure about this question, but I like the german idea :)

The way i thought about it, because of the clue with the year was that the numbers represented a passage of time.

so I said 99 days takes us to the 9th of april, and nine months takes us up nine months to january, which will be in 1799

I dont think its right, but it was an idea

December 28, 2007 1:43 PM

Sir said...

ok, maybe the ? can be treated like a variable, so the answer is ? = 12. dunno, bit of a vague puzzle, probably with an ingenious solution

To all you who thought it was a question. Which I did when i first read it. I'm sorry (not really) to tell you but it is not.

A question may be either a linguistic expression used to make a request for information, or else the request itself made by such an expression. This information is provided with an answer.

Questions are normally put or asked using interrogative sentences. But they can also be put by imperative sentences, such as "Tell me what 2 + 2 is." not

Not: 99+9+9?, as it is incomplete.

I'm sure if Professor Nova wanted his problem to be a question he would have asked a question.
