"2" is technically not correct. The "=" should be "≈" for the "2" answer to be correct.

For example,

8096 = 5

and

9881 = 5

is not possible. It's reasonable that "9" = "6" ... but "9" + "6" = "8" ? or "0" = "9" ?

For example,

8096 = 5

9881 = 5

If "=" is defined as a topological mapping function to the integers, it's totally valid. The function need not be one-one.

oh, thanks for clarifying :weirdo:

There are two functions. f:Z-->Z assigns, for example, the number 1 to 0, the number 0 to 1, the number 0 to 2, etc. (where Z=the integers). Then there is a quaternary map on Z, written as a word of length 4, that simply produces the sum of the "letters" in the word. The expression "8809=6" means g((f,f,f,f)(8,8,0,9))=6, where (f,f,f,f) is the cartesian product of f with itself 4 times (it is a map from Z^4 to Z^4). The composition g((f,f,f,f)) is certainly not injective, given the brief glimpse into the behavior of the function f that was provided in the statement of the problem, and especially given the fact that decomposing an integer into a sum of 4 other integers is a highly non-unique process. Hope that makes sense gurl. :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

An extension to homotopy groups would ensure that the problem can be further generalized.
