Could you explain how you got 35?

OpenStudy (asnaseer):

what topic does this come under?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I don't think there is an exact answer for this question.it depends on individual methods that are impossible and correspond to the condition.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

5÷3=43 or 34?

OpenStudy (asnaseer):

FFM: what topic is this? I've never come across equations like this.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Seems like some kind of logic puzzles where "÷" has another meaning.

OpenStudy (asnaseer):

oh I see - thx for the clarification

OpenStudy (anonymous):

No problemo :)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

If \( 5÷3=34\) then \(4÷2=20 \implies 4^2+2^2=20 \) similarly \(2÷1=5 \implies 2^2+1^2=5 \) then, \(7÷6=7^2 + 6^2 = 85 \)

OpenStudy (asnaseer):

so could you say that we have some function f defined as:\[f(x,y)\]and we are given:\[f(4,2)=20\]\[f(5,3)=43\]\[f(2,1)=5\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I just remembered the best way to explain it to asnaseer, think about operator overloading in C++ :D

OpenStudy (asnaseer):

aha! - well put :)
