Cracking under pressure

comments

The 'robbers' have been giving a grueling arithmetic challenge.

The housemates from hell - who are acting as criminals as part of the latest shopping task - have been given a difficult set of sums to solve in order to gain the code for a safe.

But the hopeless bunch are struggling to work out the problem and have recruited some of the 'cops' to help out.

The equations are:

Sum 1: 3 x 17 - 24 + 78 x 9 ÷ 5 -- (13²) + (65 - 29) ÷ 4 + (4²) - (7 x 3) + (3²) + 99 - (7²) - 49 =

Sum 2: 1396 x 2 ÷ 4 -- (12²) + 46 x 2 ÷ 40 x (5²) - (7 x 99) x 3 - (11²) x 5 - 219 =

Sum 3: 100 - 33 x 5 + 665 ÷ (5²) x 17 - 248 x 3 ÷ (4²) + 52 ÷ 7 + (273 - 217)=

Meanwhile, Dale made his excuses to leave before revealing his lack of mathematics skills.

He said: "I gotta go to the toilet."
