It looks like RHB, you say?

US Version

Nope, that's not the right track at all. Try looking at things a different way.

UK Version

No, that's not the right track at all. Try looking at things in a different way.

US Version

The answer is a number, so could these chicken scratches also be numbers?

The mark on the end looks a bit like an equal sign (=), doesn't it?

UK Version

The answer is a number, so perhaps these scrawls are numbers too?

The mark at the end looks a bit like an equals sign(=), doesn't it?

US Version

In this note, there are two sets of three digits that form an equation. Take a good look!

UK Version

The note is an equation, consisting of two three-digit numbers.

Take a closer look!

US Version

"121 - 113 =" is what's written on the paper. If you can find the answer to that, you have the answer to the puzzle.

UK Version

The note actually reads "121 - 113 =". If you can find the answer to that, you have the answer to the puzzle.


Solution

Incorrect

Too bad!

US Version

You'll be fine once you see what the note's getting at, but until then...

UK Version

If only you could find some numbers in the note...

Correct

Exactly right!

You have to enter 8. If you look at the note the right way, you can see that it says "121 - 113 =," so of course the answer is 8.
