AbcDEfg + aBcdefg + ABcDEfg = 24

ABcdefG + aBCDEFg = 2

AbCDefg + aBCdefg + aBCdefg = 0

AbcdEFg + aBCDEfg = 9

ABCdefg * AbCdefg = 6

AbCdefg + aBcdefG + ABcDeFG * AbCdefg = ???

This is signed binary: a sign bit (1 for positive) and then a binary number, least significant bit first. Capital letters are 1 and lowercase are 0. Thus AbCdefg + aBcdefG + ABcDeFG * AbCdefg = 2 + -33 + 53 * 2 = 75.

The translation of all the other equations:

12 + -1 + 13 = 24
33 + -31 = 2
6 + -3 + -3 = 0
24 + -15 = 9
3 * 2 = 6

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry. I just double and triple checked. You should check your math. And I shouldn't respond to answers as I roll out of bet in the morning. I'll accept again once it's fixed. Also, take a look at purplemath.com/modules/orderops.htm to help get the correct answer as I had intended. I should have used bracketing to make it clearer though. $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jun 2 '16 at 10:38

    $\begingroup$ Oops; fixed. The way you presented it was fine - I wasn't having an order of operations problem, just an I-can't-add moment. $\endgroup$ – bmcfluff Jun 2 '16 at 16:30
  • $\begingroup$ That's almost there but unless I'm mistaken - and someone correct me if I am - the equation should be solved as follows: AbCdefg + aBcdefG + (ABcDeFG * AbCdefg) $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jun 2 '16 at 18:49
  • $\begingroup$ That is how I'm doing it. Do you agree with all the numbers I've translated? $\endgroup$ – bmcfluff Jun 2 '16 at 19:27
  • $\begingroup$ So you did. :) and yes, the translations are fine. $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jun 2 '16 at 20:55
