() isn't used mathematically in this puzzle.
() means that whatever is inside should be evaluated in the most suitable and appropriate way.
nvo(A or B) means the initial numerical value of
Two numbers were frustrated with each other. They fought, and the injured parts separated and became new numbers. The first and smaller number,
A, swallowed 10/(5(",")00) of
B, the second and bigger number (
A becomes a larger number and
B becomes smaller; 'of' doesn't mean any fraction; just simple addition and subtraction). This was how the war began.
B couldn't digest what happened and threw poisonous dots at
A, but those dots merged with
A grew to become just like
B was confused, as
A had equalled
Out of agony,
B wisely bit and swallowed
A just a little, fearing that its own teeth would betray it, but it was happy to see itself bigger and
B had swallowed ((
nvo(B)) - ((final value of
A) + (✌))).
If, in the end,
B become friends and merge, their numerical value as a whole would be
1 lesser than my current age.
What were (the numerical values of)
B, and what did they finally become? Rewrite the story with the numerical values.
B kept quarrelling and formed the number system we know today, using different techniques to attack, which accidentally created too many
Bs with unique values.
