The first line shows

lots of threes.

The second says

$\left(\frac{2838}{43\cdot\sqrt{36}}\right)^3-\frac{23}{360}\cdot\left(\frac{238}{34}\right)!$

in

$\left(\frac{\textrm{Greek}}{\textrm{Khmer}\cdot\sqrt{\textrm{Armenian}}}\right)^?-\frac{\textrm{modern Western}}{\textrm{Chinese}}\cdot\left(\frac{\textrm{Hebrew}}{\textrm{Indian}}\right)!$ numerals

yielding

1009

which

in Roman numerals, which we haven't used yet, gives MIX.

Confessions:

I don't know what the ? is, but it's clearly 3 (1) just from looking at it and (2) because it appears on the first line, which is all threes. I'm not sure whether "Armenian" is right. The thing I've labelled as Khmer seems like the first figure is Khmer and the second is Thai. I am not an expert on any of this stuff.

  • $\begingroup$ Well $\beta$, $\omega$, $\lambda$ and $\eta$ are not greek numerals, but I understand the correspondence you have used :P $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 21 '18 at 0:46
