#### if 2+9=711 then find 12+3=??? number Puzzle with answer

**Answer: **915

**Solution: **

if you look at the question we have equations as

2+9=711

14+6=820;

17+11=628

then 12+3=??

**from Equation 1 **

2+9=711

2+9=(2-9)(2+9)

= 711

here we used a formula called a+b=(a-b)(a+b)

similarly for remaining equations

**Equation:2**

14+6=(14-6)(14+6)=820

**Equation:3**

17+11=(17-11)(17+11)=628

now we have 12+3=??

12+3=(12-3)(12+3)=915

**12+3=915 is the correct answer**

#### A watchmaker was telephoned urgently to make a house call to replace the broken hands on a clock. He was sik so he sent his apprentice. The apprentice was thorough. When he finished inspecting the clock it was dark. Assuming his work was done, he attached the new hands and set the clock by his pocket watch. It was sic o’clock, so he set the big hand at the 12 and the little hand at the 6. The apprectice returned, but soon the telephone rang. He picked up to his angry client: “You didn’t do the job right. The clock shows the wrong time.” Surprised he hurried back. He found the clock showing not much past eight. He handed is watch to the client and showed her that her clock was not even one second late. The client had to agree. Early the nect morning, the client telephoned to say the clock has apparently gone berserk, hands were moving around the clock at will. The apprentice again rushed over, the clock showed a little past seven. After checking his watch he yelled: “You are making fun of me! Your clock shows the right time!” Have you figured out whats going on?

**Answer: ** As the problem says the apprentice mixed up the hands so that the minute hand was short and the hour hand was long.
The first time the apprentice returned to the client was about 2 hours and 10 minutes after he had set the clock at six.The long had moved olny from twelve to a little past two. The little made two whole circles and an additional 10 minutes. Thus the clock showed the correct time.
The next day around 7:o5 a.m.he came a second time,13 hours and 15 minutes after he had set the clock for six. The long had, acting as the hour hand,covered 13 hours to reach 1. The short hand made 13 full circles and 5 minutes, reaching 7, So the clock showed the correct time again.
