n*n-n:

8 = 56 -> 8*8-8= 56
7 = 42 -> 7*7-7= 42
6 = 30 -> 6*6-6= 30
5 = 20 -> 5*5-5= 20
4 = 12 -> 4*4-4= 12
3 = 6 -> 3*3-3= 6

Never solved it.
Generally what duration it takes to complete it.

Hmm... This is curious. I am getting $\pi$ as the answer. My formula was this:

You just need the first equation. If $8=56$ then $8(3-\pi)=56(3-\pi)$ then $24-8\pi=168-56\pi$

Now move stuff around and get $56\pi-8\pi=168-24$ so $48\pi=144$ thus $\boxed{3=\pi}$

The same thing seems to happen if I do it to the other equations, thus the others are just extra unnecessary information. $\square$

It's not all that curious. Your work gives $$8(3 - a) = 56(3-a) \implies 48(3-a)=0$$ and so clearly $48 = 0$ or $a=3$. The method you use can therefore prove that $3$ is equal to anything you want it to be.

Except that $$48(3-a)=0 \implies (56 - 8)(3-a)=0$$and the first line gives us that $56 = 8$, so we get no information about the value of $3-a$.

Yes, 3*2=6, if we follow the scenario which is being applied here. Then we will get to know that it's only multiplication of 1 preceding number.

Let us denote it in the form
a x b= c
k x m= n

Now you notice that. c - (k x 2) - 2 = n

Using this on

3 x 4= 12
2 x m= n

12 - (2 x 2) -2 = n = 6.

sir Einstien I am also genius, hoo hoo!
