This may seem easy at first but you will quickly realize it is not as easy as it looks. Give it a go!

The answer is revealed below but doesn’t cheat by peeking!

**Can you spot the connection between the following equations?**

Remember, it’s not really that complicated of a mathematical problem. You should be able to solve it with basic 4th-grade math chops – and a bit of genius, of course.

Need a hint? Don’t think of the number after the equal signs as a big number. Think digits.

Wrestle with this a little more before moving on.

A

B

C

**The Answer**

To get the equation results, you simply need to multiply the preceding digits then add and subtract them from each other. Plop those small answers together to get the ‘big one.

Let’s look at the last equation, for example: 20 + 3 = 602317

20 x 3 = 60

20 + 3 = 23

20 – 3 = 17

602317
