Arithmetic Puzzles

Arithmetic puzzles are Mad Libs for math: fill in the blanks with numbers or operations to make the equation true.

Fill in the Digits

         

If \(2\square + 35 = 58,\) what is \( \square?\)


This is an arithmetic puzzle, where \( 1 \square \) would represent the 2-digit number 19 if \( \square = 9 \). It does not represent the algebraic expression \( 1 \times \square \).

If \((1 \square \times 3) +8= 59,\) what number should be placed in \(\square?\)


This is an arithmetic puzzle, where \( 1 \square \) would represent the 2-digit number 19 if \( \square = 9 \). It does not represent the algebraic expression \( 1 \times \square \).

If \((5 \square \div 2) -61= -35,\) what number should be placed in \(\square?\)


This is an arithmetic puzzle, where \( 1 \square \) would represent the 2-digit number 19 if \( \square = 9 \). It does not represent the algebraic expression \( 1 \times \square \).

Both boxes contain the same digit. What digit would make the equation true?


This is an arithmetic puzzle, where \( 1 \square \) would represent the 2-digit number 19 if \( \square = 9 \). It does not represent the algebraic expression \( 1 \times \square \).

If \(2 \square \times 4 = 88,\) what number should be placed in \(\square?\)
