[edit] Hints

Hint One
    It's difficult to choose only four numbers. Just try plugging in different numbers.

Hint Two
    Think of two sets of two numbers that produce the same value when the numbers in one set are multiplied and the numbers in the other set are added together, and vice-versa.

Hint Three
    The two numbers on each side of the equation should produce the same result when they are multiplied as when they are added together, so large numbers won't work.

Super Hint
    When the solution to the top equation is six, the solution to the lower equation is five.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

It's a combination of simple numbers. Just keep trying.

[edit] When Completed


Here is one possible solution. The right half and left half of the equation are interchangeable. Since they involve addition and multiplication, the equation is viable even if the two numbers on the left side swap positions, or if the two numbers on the right side swap positions.

[edit] Solution


Arrange the numbers as shown.

[edit] Progress

1195 Picarats and 132 Hint Coins.
