|←||Paper and Scissors||AB+B=BA||What Number?||→|
Let's replace the numbers in the equation 12+12=24. A is now one, B is now two, and C is now four, which gives up the new equations AB+AB=BC.
Now think about another such equation, AB+B=BA, where the letters may have different values from the sample equation above.
What numbers could replace the A and the B to make this second equation true? Keep in mind that A and B are different numbers.
If you replace the A with an eight and the B with a nine, then the equation is true because 89+9=98.
