**DO NOT SOVLE** the given **Equa.**

Instructions

- Insert the given set of numbers into the grid in adjacent threes.
- In this game, adjacent numbers are three numbers connected
**vertically, horizontally, and in “L” connection**, as shown in the diagram below.

- As you put the numbers in the grid, refer back to the list of equations. No combination of numbers you added should match any of the equations on the list.
- The puzzle is solved when all the numbers from the set are in the grid and
**NO THREE-ADJACENT**numbers result in the given Equa. - Use only basic arithmetic functions: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division; and follow the order of operations when necessary.
- In some beginner levels of Tesla Puzzle, the grid may be partially filled for easier solving

Initial table filled with one number

Final solution

In this 3×2 grid, with prefilled one number (8) our task is to put numbers 1, 3, 9, 10 and 12 so each three adjacent numbers cannot create Equa-21. At the right you see the final solution of the game. Let’s do some calculations:

10, 8 and 12 cannot result 21

1, 9 and 3 cannot result 21

10, 8 and 1 cannot result 21

10, 8 and 9 cannot result 21

10, 1 and 9 cannot result 21

8, 1 and 9 cannot result 21

8, 12 and 9 cannot result 21

8, 12 and 3 cannot result 21

8, 9 and 3 cannot result 21

12, 9 and 3 cannot result 21

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.
