# Math Equation Puzzle

## Question

Hi Folks,

I'm a new member and like to do puzzles in my spare time. I am posting an easy puzzle for you to solve. Bonus points to whomever solves it first. Figure out what the value are for A, B, C, D, E & F.

I have attached the puzzle to this post.

If C=6....then the 4th equation would not work to get a value of 16.

If C=6....then the 4th equation would not work to get a value of 16.

If I'm misquoting the equation, let me know... but I'm pretty sure it works.

c2 - (a - d) * (b + c) = 16

a=3

b=4

c=6

d=1

62 - (3 -1) * (4 + 6) = 16

36 - 2*10 = 16

36 - 20 = 16

16 = 16

A=3

B=4

C=6

D=1

E=0

F=9

More or less used inteligent guess and check knowing that some numbers had to be multiples of others already sloved for.

There's one other answer such that all the variables are integers! Did anyone find that one?

a=3

b=4

c=-8

d=15

e=0

f=9

a=3

b=4

c=-4

d=16

e=0

f=4

a=3

b=4

c=6

d=1

e=0

f=9

there are three non-integer solutions, but as they require cube roots, I am to lazy to post them.
