The answer is 42
What values did you get for A, B and C?

Maybe there's multiple answers.

The problem with these riddle threads are the fact that the answer is on a random page say 10 pages down, its hard to track.

Op Once you get the solution can you say how and why you got that? and put in a spoiler? Can mods ensure this? Thanks.

Nope, it's 42.

Yeah, it's definitely 42.
15. A B B C T
C C A C 45
C C B A 37
B A A C 42

1A + 2B + 1C = T
1A + 0B + 3C = 45
1A + 1B + 2C = 37
2A + 1B + 1C = 42

Finally got the LaTex coding right.. basically this is an elementary maths problem which is easily solvable via matrices or other simultaneous equations.

A+ B +B +C = T
C + C + A + C =45
C + C + B + A =37
B + A + A + C =42

Hmmm not exactly a riddle, but still.. T = 29

Why didn't I see this before solving it
17. I did this quite quickly so maybe I have misinterpretted the question
i got 29
this is how
the third row is basically the same as the 2nd but with a b replacing one of the c's.as the 3rd row is 8 less than the 2nd we can take bas being 8 less than a or b=c-8
then take the 2nd row c c a c
this is the first row but 2 of the c's are replaced by 2 b's. as each b is 8 less than each c. The first row is 16 less than the second
therefore T =45-16=29
