**equations** that result in the given Equas from 13 to 24, when you calculate any three adjacent numbers in the square grid.

- You are given a prefilled grid and a list of all Equas that can be found from 13 to 24.
- There’s always at least one equation that can be made to satisfy each result.
- As a hint, you will know the total number of equations that can be found.
- Use the work area to write down all equations you find.
- In this game, adjacent numbers are three numbers connected
**vertically, horizontally or in an “****L”****shape**, as shown in the diagram below.

- Use only basic arithmetic functions: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division; and follow the order of operations when necessary

In this 2×2 grid, our task is to count Equas from 13 to 24. Also, we know that there is a total of 18 equations that can be found.

Solution:

Equa-13 (2): 6 + 3 + 4 = 13, 1 + 3 x 4 = 13

Equa-14 (1): 6 x 3 – 4 = 14

Equa-15 (2): (6 – 1) x 3 = 15, (1 + 4) x 3 = 15

Equa-16 (1): (3 + 1) x 4 = 16

Equa-17 (1): 6 x 3 – 1 = 17

Equa-18 (3): 6 x 3 : 1 = 18, 6 + 3 x 4 = 18, (4 – 1) x 6 = 18

Equa-19 (1): 1 + 6 x 3 = 19

Equa-20 (1): (6 – 1) x 4 = 20

Equa-21 (2): (6 + 1) x 3 = 21, 6 x 4 – 3 = 21

Equa-22 (1): 4 + 6 x 3 = 22

Equa-23 (1): 6 x 4 – 1 = 23

Equa-24 (2): (3 + 1) x 6 = 24, 6 x 4 : 1 = 24

As we can see, solution for this puzzle is correct.

Основна правила Аритма:

**Да пронађете или убаците у мрежу три суседна броја која када се заједно израчунају резултирају Еквом-X.****Еква и Eква-X**су термини који једноставно значе решење једначине. На пример: 2 x 4 -1 = 7**(Еква-7)**- У Аритму, једначина се прави од 3 конектована броја на мрежи.
- Постоји 5 типова мрежа: Circle, Hexagon, Rhombus, Square, Triangle. Each game has a diagram illustrating how connections should be made in its specific grid.
- Numbers are calculated together using only addition, subtraction, multiplication and division,
*with or without parenthesis.*

If a combination of arithmetic functions is used than keep in mind the following order of operations you learned in math class:

Rule 1: *First perform any calculations inside parentheses, if they exist.*

Rule 2: *Next perform all multiplications and divisions*

Rule 3: *Lastly, perform all additions and subtractions*

The order of operation rules are demonstrated in the examples shown below:

(8 – 5) x 7 = 21 (**Equa-****21**)

8 x 12 ÷ 6 = 16 (**Equa-****16**)

6 x 3 + 5 = 23 (**Equa-23**)

11 + 12 ÷ 4 = 14 (**Equa-14**)

Each Arithmo puzzle employs the basic rules, but it will also have its own set of specific rules. Please read all the rules carefully for maximum benefit and enjoyment.

Arithmo Basic Rules:

- To find or insert in a grid three adjacent numbers that when calculated together result in an
**Equa-X.** **Equa and Equa-X**are terms that simply mean the result of a mathematical equation. For example: 2 x 4 -1 = 7**(Equa-7)**- In Arithmo, an equation is made by connecting three adjacent numbers in a grid.
- There are five types of puzzle grid shapes: Circle, Hexagon, Rhombus, Square, Triangle. Each game has a diagram illustrating how connections should be made in its specific grid.
