This puzzle involves 24 equilateral triangles with a different equation on each side. To ensure the puzzle is possible you will need to label the sides clockwise in the order of a, b and c. As these are equilateral triangles, the starting side (or 'side a') doesn't matter.

Triangle ID | Side a | Side b | Side c |
---|---|---|---|

T01 | \[^4\sqrt256 = x + 4\] | \[5x = 100\] | \[\sqrt x = x\] |

T02 | Blank | \[\sqrt49 + 10 = x\] | \[{3x \over 2} = 3^2\] |

T03 | \[4x = 8\] | Blank | \[x^3 - 30 = -3\] |

T04 | \[3x = \sqrt81\] | \[{x \over 16} = {1 \over 2}\] | \[{x \over 0.5} = 44\] |

T05 | \[72 = 3x\] | \[{3x \over 7.5} = 6\] | \[5 \times 10 + 2 = 2x\] |

T06 | \[x = \sqrt4\] | Blank | \[x^2 = \sqrt81\] |

T07 | \[{12x \over 2} = 60\] | \[{32 \over 4} = 2x\] | Blank |

T08 | Blank | \[-x = x - 2\] | \[-11 + x = 9 - x\] |

T09 | \[3x = 27\] | \[10 + x = 25\] | \[x + 1 = 7 \times 3\] |

T10 | \[3x - 4x = -17\] | \[2x =4^2\] | \[{x \over 3} = ^3\sqrt27\] |

T11 | \[{30 \over x} = 10\] | Blank | \[3x = 42\] |

T12 | Blank | \[\sqrt81 - x = 2\] | \[7x - 6 =36\] |

T13 | \[2 - x = 1\] | \[{x \over 13} = 2\] | \[x = \sqrt25\] |

T14 | \[3x^2 = 3\] | Blank | \[7x - 2x = 10\] |

T15 | \[4x = \sqrt16\] | \[{4 \over 2} = x\] | \[3^3 = x - 2\] |

T16 | Blank | \[4x + 8 = 5x\] | \[3x + 4 = 25\] |

T17 | \[3x + 7 =10\] | \[{x \over 2} = 11\] | \[x - 13 = 4^2\] |

T18 | \[x = \sqrt16\] | \[x = ^3\sqrt512\] | \[32 = {x^2 \over 2}\] |

T19 | \[{25 \over x} = 5\] | \[2x + 6 = 24\] | Blank |

T20 | \[-x^2 + 72 = 36\] | \[\sqrt49 = x\] | \[5 - x = 2\] |

T21 | Blank | \[3x = 18\] | \[\sqrt36 - x = 1\] |

T22 | \[x = 4^2 + 8\] | \[3x - 4x = -7\] | \[x + 8 = 14 - x\] |

T23 | \[x = \sqrt196\] | \[5x = x^2\] | \[x + 5 = {10 \over 2}\] |

T24 | \[3^2 = x + 1\] | Blank | \[x = 9\] |
