Explanation through an example question

As an example question, let’s assume you have come across a door with the number 17 in its top center circle surrounded by the number seven, a picture of a hydra, and a question mark. Then you must find the value of the question mark and use the roller situated on the left side of the door to select the correct symbol.

  • In the above-mentioned example, the answer is the octopus as that is worth seven. Essentially, seven + hydra (three) + octopus (seven) = 17. You can add the available values, in this instance, seven and hydra (three) then subtract it from the provided answer 17 to discover the value of the question mark which is 7 corresponding to octopus.
  • Simple isn’t it? Apart from this, the only thing you need to do is figure out, whether each puzzle is an addition or subtraction question. That’s all there is to these number puzzle doors.
