## A ROMANesque equation : reopened - 12/31/12 12:11 PM

Using Pandora's first one: II * VII = XIV

Move one match (or line) on both sides of

the = sign and end up with a new correct

equation. "Move" does not mean throw away:

simply means rearrange as you see fit:

like, X can become a V by moving one line...

Day#1 clue: one of the I's is "moved" such

that it become a division sign: /

As example: XXIII(23) changed to XX/II(10)

II*sqrt I = X/V move an I on the left to a horizontal position over the other I to form a sqrt sign

Perfecto Manxman!

II * VT = X / V

Just realised there is at least another solution.

What zit?

Nope: you made 2 moves on left side; only 1 per side allowed...

II * VII = XIV

I * X/II = X-V

I put the I on the \ of \/II

Ahhh...real cute!

I was looking for: I * VI-I = X-V

There's another one, but a bit of a stretcher:

(i represent a line placed vertically but lower)

I * iVII = iXV

1 * 1^7 = 1^15
