Numbers? Me? Seriously? I am seriously numerically challenged. I just LOOK at the numbers and start to go into a faint!

I have the advantage for most of my life that “I can’t do math, I am blonde.” The color may have turned a tad but math and I are not friends. Too bad, this looks like fun.

I’m not a blonde, but I am dumb where maths is concerned.

176=55x+y and 539=176x+y therefore x=3 and y=11 finally 3+11=14

Fun, thanks!
