# The Tiger equation

X/2 + X = Tiger was no.1

X + a + X/2 = The Gates of Sound

X*2 reversed = Y2K

X tilted = A unique flag

x - 1 = X

What is X?

• Should it be assumed that x and X are the same? Mar 21, 2016 at 18:01
• The difference is intended Mar 21, 2016 at 18:02
• Hi Enigma, good to see you back! Mar 21, 2016 at 18:02
• My gut instinct is that X is a number, but every time it's used it is broken down into some letters which add up to that number (except maybe for tilted). But I haven't been able to make that work yet. Mar 21, 2016 at 20:58

X is

W (or w)

X/2 + X =

VW Tiguan

X + a + X/2 =

WAV/wav (a digital audio format)

X*2 reversed =

MM (roman numeral for 2000)

X tilted =

The flag of Nepal, which has a unique shape (kind of like a tilted W)

x - 1 =

01010111 (ASCII for W), which is a 1 less than 01110111 (ASCII for w)

or

w, which comes right before x in the alphabet (thanks to Marius)

• Answer is correct, please try to elaborate on all clues... Mar 22, 2016 at 8:27
• You are missing this one "X tilted = A unique flag". This may give you a hint: buyflagspoles.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/country-flags.jpg. Which one is "unique"? Mar 22, 2016 at 8:29
• Ok, maybe a bit too hard. Tiger as in Tiger Woods, hence Golf, and Gates as in Bill Gates (as wav is a Windows format) Mar 22, 2016 at 8:59
• @Enigma in this case shouldn't it be "The Sound of Gates" instead of "The Gates of Sound"? Mar 22, 2016 at 9:01
