Remember back in high school when you spent two semesters in algebra, hunting for X as if he had stolen something? Remember how everybody thought it was so-o-o important – but you? Remember how you don’t remember any of it cuz you’ve never found a practical use for (X^{2 }+ 3 = 12.)? This is a puzzle that *looks* a lot like algebra but *isn’t*. Every letter represents a value that has *direct relationship* to the other letter (or letters) in each example. Although they are all connected, they must be solved separately. The groupings are random, and you can start anywhere. Your first correct answer will lead you to every other solution. From there, it’s only a matter of deductive reasoning. However, each answer will still test your practical knowledge. Good Luck!
