What does A B and C equal when...

AA+BB+CC=BAC

i think it's pretty straight forward :)
have fun

Grammar sucks

(does) You mean "do" and you wanted to put commas between the letters and before the "and."
Just wanted to get back at you

I didn't think the problem was intended to be a "real" math problem.

99 + 11 + 88 = 198

My fault you're right there. To much calculus, I see variables together and start squaring them and trying to find 2 other equations so I can solve for all 3 variables.

also can be solved by

A = B = C = 3

9 + 9 + 9 = 27

Just a couple :P

i j k i*j*k
0 0 0 0
3 3 3 27
3 3 6 54
3 6 15 270
3 15 39 1755
3 39 102 11934
3 102 267 81702
3 267 699 559899
6 87 15 7830
6 507 87 264654
15 39 582 340470

Unless you don't mean multiplication when you say AA

oh ya :P I was thinkin' everything was multiplied not added..

Well it does according to Roger Daltry.
