## What is the challenge we are proposing to you?

For this test, we will present you with a grid of 16 squares. In the first row, there will be a sheep in each box, except for the last one, which will have the number 24 in it.

In the second row, you will find a penguin in the first two boxes, a sheep in the third and the number 12.

In the third row, there will be a chick, a sheep, another chick and the number 18. On the fourth and last line, you will have the numbers **15, 18 and 21.** As you can see, there is a logic behind the numbers displayed on the grid.

Your objective will be to find this logic and to use these numbers to find the value of each little animal.

## Now it’s time to reveal the answers!

**The sheep represented the number 8, the penguin represented the number 2 and the chick represented the number 5**. Congratulations to those who got the answers right.

For the rest, don’t panic. We will explain how to solve this puzzle. To solve it, you just have to do some calculations, taking care that the operation between the three animals gives the number on the same row and column.

So we had to start with the easiest one:** the sum of the three sheep was equal to 24**, so one sheep was equal to 8. Once the value of the sheep was found, it was easy to deduce, thanks to small calculations, the value of the other animals.** Here is the solution in picture**s.
