Wow, Chan, you had us back in class. I was so glad to get out of algebra class as it was! Maybe I should email this to my algebra instructor. He actually loves the subject.
Thanks and God bless.
The answer for question 11 is 21. And the calculations are:

6 x 3 + 4 1 = 21
I’ve submitted the fix, sorry for the typing errors.

Because I went through from basic to advance math in the university, and not to appear arrogant, these questions in my opinion are not that trickiest nor the most mindtwisting.It’s only up to basic algebra in level. A beautiful and great article though.
