# Solve This 'Unknown Operator' Problem

Source

If below equations are true,

24 % 6 = 64
35 % 5 = 87
63 % 7 = 99


Then based on similar logic what's the value of below equation

88 % 8 = ?

• @JonMark, unless the answer involves an infinitesimal or an infinity, it's somewhat misleading to use the word "surreal" May 14 '17 at 17:44

Next would be -

1611

First digit/digits is/are sum of two digits of first number and the next digit/digits is/are division of first and the second.
8+8 = 16
88/8 = 11
Hence, 1611

Others -
24 % 6 = 64 $\rightarrow$ 2+4,24/6 $\rightarrow$ 64
35 % 5 = 87 $\rightarrow$ 3+5,35/5 $\rightarrow$ 87
63 % 7 = 99 $\rightarrow$ 6+3,63/7 $\rightarrow$ 99

Alternatively, it could be

171
If you instead look at operator as functioning thusly: (sum of the digits of the first number)*10 + (first number divided by the second number)

For example:
24 % 6 = (2 + 4)*10 + (24/6) = 64
35 % 5 = (3 + 5)*10 + (35/5) = 87
88 % 8 = (8 + 8)*10 + (88/8) = 171

Without an extra example, I'm afraid this puzzle might be a little ambiguous.
