## Brain Teaser Math Puzzle - Fill the boxes | Viral Math Problem - Solution

If you are still trying to get the answer to this, we have a hint for you, there are a few different solutions, and all you need to know is basic General knowledge to get the mistakes right. Let us now see the solutions and its explanation.

a + b = 2 --- Equation 1

a x c = 5 --- Equation 2

c x d=1 --- Equation 3

b - d = 14 --- Equation 4

a = 2 - b

Replacing this in Equation 2

(2 - b)c = 5

c = 5/(2 - b)

Replacing this Equation 3

5/(2 - b) x d = 1

5d/(2 - b) = 1

5d = 2 - b

5d +b = 2

Equating Equation 3 and Equation 4

5d +b = 2 - (b - d = 14)

6d = -12

**d = -2**

Replacing d in Equation 3

b - (-2) = 14

**b = 12**

a + b = 2

**a = -10**

a x c = 5

**c = -1/2**

The picture given below will make you understand this solution better.
