Challenger Puzzle #1
First published: Tuesday May 2nd, 2023
As an educator, I have always enjoyed creating my own puzzles. This makes it so people cannot just look up answers online. They either solve it or will never know the answer. Enjoy this puzzle. I would call this "extreme" in terms of difficulty. Good luck!
I have invented a mathematical system. I can always give you more information about my mathematical system, but this should be enough for you to dig in and figure things out!
I. 10 + 110 = 120
II. 1 + 1 = 10
III. 211 * 10 = 1100
IV. 4020 / 1001 = 20
V. 121,310 - 112,220 = 4020
VI. 43,011 - 24,301 = 13,110
Using these equations, solve the following problem:
Let A = 1. Let B = A + 1. Let C = B + 1, and so forth.
What is ABCDEFGHIJK - 1?
Hint: I used Roman numerals just to differentiate from my math system. They are not part of the problem.
