# Can you cross the bridge?

If

C = 5
N = 2
R = 4
W = 1
P = 9
A = 4
D = 0
G = 7
M = 2

Then

B = ?

• B is equal to the answer the OP intended Apr 19, 2019 at 0:13
• @North no kidding. To Soltius - is modular division involved? Apr 19, 2019 at 0:25
• Chinese remainder theorem! Apr 19, 2019 at 1:01
• @Brandon_J and Dr Xorile : No modular division or chinese remainder theorem Apr 19, 2019 at 10:16

Hint: some of these letters have much more than a single solution.

We just use basic topology of the symbols and see if they correspond: holes, tails, their connections and etc. The classes of letters presented are:
Just a line as in {C, 5, N, 2, W, 1, G, 7, M }
Circle with a tail as in { P, 9 }
Circle with two tails as in {R, A, 4}
Just circle as in {D, 0}.

With that said, B definitely equals

eight.

BONUS QUESTION FOR CREATOR:
What makes me believe that

POLO equals 0.06?

• I would say W=3 under these rules, no? And surely M and W would be the same, at least? Apr 24, 2019 at 11:49
• @hexomino I might have been unclear, but by my set of rules M=W=3=2, so you're correct as well. Apr 24, 2019 at 12:14

• Good job ! To be more precise, the "equal" sign indicated that values on each sign were related by a homeomorphism : You can read more about it here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topology, but it basically means that if you squish and pull stuff on the LHS without changing the general toplogy (holes stay holes, etc), you can get the RHS (like a donut can change into a mug).
