MATH! is not as nice as SCIENCE!

So, I have this book of brain teasers. I brought it to work today because I was going to be early. The very first problem in the book is a simple one. It gives a bunch of equations using symbols in place of numbers. Each symbol is a one-digit number, [1,9]. Two symbols together are two-digit number (ie, !( = 21).

So I was like "Well, I could just guess! But I'm going to be smrt and solve with math!" because clearly that is how you are meant to, right?


An hour and a half later, I've solved for every symbol and four times and I still can't get it the fuck right. Anyone want to take a gander and see what the fuck I'm doing wrong?

Anyone good at brain games involving math? )

MICHAEL: One evening, a patient was brought into my clinic in the middle of the night. He was tortured so badly I couldn’t believe he was still breathing. A man was with him. It was the man on your radio. I’ll never forget the voice. He put a gun to my head and explained to me that my patient had robbed him and that he wanted me to save him so the pain would last longer. I did what I could. He said to come here for my money — my blood money. There’s a place between life and death. Amazing how long a man can linger there.
PRESCOTT: That’s enough, all right? Okay. Bring everything upstairs. We’re getting out of here. Tony? Tony, can you hear me?
THUG: What the hell is going on?
MICHAEL: I know this guy. He’ll have people outside the bank, in your truck,and on your boat. You have no idea who you’re dealing with.
