It's using all the numbers from 0 to 9.

Is it a prime number?

Which number must be written in the place of the dots?

It's fairly obvious that all those numbers can be inverted., ie turned over.

The first equation when read 'upside down' is :-

18108 + 80998 = 99106

The second equation therefore is :-

19969 + 68199 = 88168

When inverted 88168 becomes 89188.

Answer 89188.

If you turn the paper around, the text will read:
... = 19969 + 68199
99106 = 18108 + 80998
Therefore the missing number is 88168, which after 180 degrees rotation becomes 89188.

Four friends Tom, Jim, Susan and Dora have 8 crayons in total which are two in each color – red, green, blue and yellow. While playing they have mixed up their crayons. All we know is each of the friends owned 2 crayons but none of them had crayons of same color.

One of the friends had a yellow and a blue crayon and another had a green and a blue crayon. Tom didn’t have a yellow crayon. Susan had a green crayon but not a red one. Jim had a yellow crayon. Dora had a blue but not a green one.

Which crayons belong to which friends?
