NEW PROBLEM

***************

60-(3•x) = 2§

2+x = 10

what is x? and what number does § represent?

Exactly. It is much better.

Well, I think the digits on the left (and the operations applied) are in base 10, while those on the right are in base 12.

So x=10; and §=6.

60-30 = 30 which is 26 in base 12.

2+10 = 12 which 10 in base 12.
