### Tricky Equation Riddle

Tricky Equation Riddle - 10 October

If BAT = 58 and HAT = 52 and CAT=57
then whats RAT = ?

1. 0 because the cat ate the rat

2. 42 is the answer .........

3. very simple 42

1. what is the logic?

2. Write out the alphabet. Now, number the letters backwards (z=1, a=26). Finally, do the addition. RAT = 9+26+7 = 42

4. for xAT, the number is 60-i; where x is the ith alphabet.

so for BAT it is, 58, for CAT it is 57, Hence for RAT the number is 42.

1. don't need to take reference number....just go on increasing alphabets and decreasing the corresponding number in the given problem....u'll find the solution and understand why it is "60"

;-)

5. 42
Extremely Simple

6. Ans is 42
Given
BAT = 58
HAT = 52
CAT = 57 and RAT = ?

Just Arrange the right side value in decreasing order
that is
BAT = 58
CAT = 57
HAT = 52
RAT = ?
See the first alphabet of each word. if the alphabet is increasing the right side value is decreasing by 1
like wise you can calculate
lets start from H
the next letter is
IAT = 51
JAT = 50
KAT = 49
LAT = 48
MAT = 47
NAT = 46
OAT = 45
PAT = 44
QAT = 43
RAT = 42 (Ans)

7. 81-sum of digits of nos
