# Ancient Terminal

## Recommended Posts

I have one real quick question. I'm on Dxun and I can't figure out one of the puzzles in the tomb. It's on one of the ancient terminals when you have to solve an equation that looks like (6_2)_8_9_1=13. And you have to fill in the math symbols.

I cannot for my life figure this one out. Does anyone know it it's driving me crazy!

Thanks

(6x2)-8+9x1

it worked for me.

6x2-8+9x1 = 13

Thanks! :D I just realized what an idiotic mistke I was making I kept trying to add or subtract the 1 instead of multiplying. :">

6x2-8+9x1 = 13

Well, that's what I thought. Only my game thinks differently

"

With either 6x2-8+9x1 = 13 of 6x2-8+9/1 = 13 the game says: Incorrect

Friggin' bugs in this game drive me crazy

Strangely enough, in my game 6x2-8+9x1 = 13 was supposedly wrong while 6x2-8+9/1 = 13 was correct.

im surprised that 6x2-8+9x1 = 13 worked for you guys... a basic rule of "Pemdas" is that you can only use each one once... so 6x2-8+9/1 = 13 should be correct while 6x2-8+9x1 = 13 should be incoreect

Who is Pemdas? And what has he to do with this puzzle?

"Jedi poodoo!" - some displeased Dug

p.e.m.d.a.s ... Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiply, Divide, Add, Subtract... its a rule of math

Ah, ok, Pemdas! I know him.

But who has ever said that "you can only use each one once" is a rule of math...?!

Pemdas just has to do with order of operations, not sure where you got that rule about "only using each one once" that is just crazy

What do those terminals give you anyway?

I think what's being referred to is a puzzle involving pemdas. In such a puzzle, you're given some numbers, told the answer, and must make the answer from the original numbers. One of the rules is often that each sign can be used only once.

Hawk! Eggplant! AWAKEN!

pemdas is only the "order" of mathmatical operations. it has nothing to do with "only using each once." However it is a common practice in math probelms to have them limited to one use each. But in this instance that is not the case and each can be used multiple times if needed.

Where is this tomb located and how do i get into it.

The only reason i ask is because im running out of game and im not to high in my levels i need more experience

You have to start the end game to get into the tomb.

Edit: ie, finish all of the planets.
