If:
O plus T = T
O plus S = S
T plus T = F
F plus F = E
E plus O = N

Oh. I almost commented saying, "Is this a trick? N-N is zero." Then I realized you were looking for which LETTER would represent N-N. I gotcha. (And Anonymous is right: it's O.)

O isn't zero in this problem, it's one. The letters are the first letter of the numbers. The problem would read "one plus two = three, one plus six = seven, two plus three = five, four plus four = eight, eight plus one = nine." So, N-N, or nine minus nine, equals zero, which is Z.

The answer should be N-N = Z tht a tricky qsn The key One plus Two = Three One plus Six = Seven Two plus Two = Four (or Two plus Three = Five) Four plus Four = Eight Eight plus One = Nine

Leave your answer or, if you want to post a question of your own, send me an e-mail. Look in the about section to find my e-mail address. If it's new, I'll post it soon.

N - N = O

ReplyDeleteWouldn't N-N=Z?

ReplyDeleteThe key is

One plus Two = Three

One plus Six = Seven

Two plus Two = Four (or Two plus Three = Five)

Four plus Four = Eight

Eight plus One = Nine

And so Nine - Nine = Zero.

The answer should be N-N = Z

ReplyDeletetht a tricky qsn

The key

One plus Two = Three

One plus Six = Seven

Two plus Two = Four (or Two plus Three = Five)

Four plus Four = Eight

Eight plus One = Nine

And so Nine - Nine = Zero.

Ohhhh...now I get it.
