While on your interplanetary vacation, you decide to stop at the planet Quocorri, a planet known for its many mathematical achievements.

While there, you decide to pick up on some of the Quocorrians mathematical variations. The Quocorrians won't tell you exactly how it works, only that it has some relationship to the Standard English math. They also give you four, true, Quocorrian math problems. They are:

2+2=9
4*1=1
5-2=16
-3+2=64

So, according to this system, what is 6/2?


Solution:

81. In this system of Quocorrian math, you change the operation to its opposite (+ to -, * to / and vice versa), and solve regularly. Then, you subtract three from that answer. Finally, you square that to get your answer.
