Magic Numbers

1.            The numbers are 2 and 2 because 2 + 2 = 2 x 2.

2.          Another answer is 0 and 0 because 0 + 0 = 0 x 0.

3.             If one number is 3, the other is 1.5 because 3 + 1.5 = 3 x 1.5.

4.             The only solution using positive numbers is 1, 2, and 3, because 1 + 2 + 3 = 1 x 2 x 3.

            There are an infinite number of solutions using negative numbers because

            (-1) + 0 + 1 = (-1) x 0 x 1, (-2) + 0 + 2 = (-2) x 0 x 2, and so on.
