3. That equation reminds me of the question NumberPhile recently looked at -- the IMO one.

Well, obviously it is NOT an equation. Look up the definition.
7. It is an equation, but one where there are more than 'many' possible answers - are you questioning me? Go ahead.

Right. Go ahead and explain because what I'm seeing up there is an expression, not an equation.

13. lol.

I can give you some sort of equation but that would take some time; a variable amount of time.
