### Friday Riddle

Friday Riddle - 25 November

The equation shown below is not correct:
26-63=1
Can you make the equation correct by moving just one symbol?

1. 26|63 =1;
where | is the XOR symbol by rotating minus sign.

2. 2^6-36 = 1

3. yeah it is, 2^6-63=1

1. isnt it just insyead of 26-63=1 isnt it 62-63=1

2. that would be minus 1...lol

4. 2^6-63=1
so simple

1. 62-63 is -1. Get your math right.

2. you cant subtract 63 from 62.. so mabie you need to re think yo shit

3. Maybe, 'mabie' is spelled M-a-y-b-e.

4. evaristo u r a jerk

5. loads seem to be putting 2^6-63=1 wot does that mean im only 11

1. a good samaritanMay 11, 2012 at 9:57 PM

that means 2 to the power of 6

2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 = 2^6

2. asterisks? I said I'm only 11.

3. it means that you multiply the number 2 six times.
so this symbol ^ means that its to the power of the number. so if 2^6, reads two to the power of six, so you take two and multiply two, six times, so 2 time 2 is 4, then 4 times 2 is 8, etc....

6. The right answer has not yet been said, but I do not know it.

7. all of you didnt move a symbol, you added a new one hence making all the answers wrong

1. move 6 above 2

8. 2^6=64-63=1

9. The numbers cannot be incorrect. The human potential misinterpretation and miscalculation of the equation are the only things that can make the equation incorrect.
26-63=1
126-63=

10. actually um you could just move the minus symbol across the equals symbol making the statement read 2663 does not equal 1...

1. Or move it into a greater than or equal to sign...

11. 2^6-63=1. This can't be right, the riddle says to move a symbol, not add one. Therefore you can't add the ^ symbol

1. When written down, you move it up, you don't add anything.

2. But its not a symbol duh.

12. 2663 ≠ 1 (move the - sign over the top of the = sign)

1. That would just ruin the definition of the word equation
