I'm impressed I got this, but I never was one for math, so that's probably why I could pick it up quickly. I good with word problems and logic. The solution was obvious since it has nothing to do with calculations.

Took about 5 seconds, and I have a higher education.

The "preschoolers solve this really fast" was a dead giveaway that the key was something trivial.

It's like that "petals round the rose" dice thing.

The answer is simple. 2581 = 2581.
The preceding 21 equalities are incorrect.

I like this. It bugs me that none of the numbers given to us have a 4, though, because I found values for all the other numbers to double check. 4 is still just "4=?" though.

Number of loops in the individual numbers, but I guess that's been posted already.

I looked at the description and already realised that this isn't an equation. I've heard the saying that older educated people tend to over think which causes them to take longer (at times) to solve a riddle/equation. I then figured out it's just the number of holes each number has.

I do think this is stupid though because this isn't to do with maths but rather pointless BS nobody needs to know. It's like. Count how many lines are in the word POO and there you go, you're dumber than a primary school student. But can a primary school student do functions of X? No.

I'd also like to point that this took me about 3ish minutes

Nice. Looked over it, realized I was over-thinking, then got 2. Took me about 3 or 4 minutes.

"I would have never thought to count the damn holes. I was adding, multiplying, figuring out the square root.... "

"I was way over-analyzing this. I started making equations out of the 4 numbers and switched around operations to see if I could get the answer. I gave up after 10 minutes. I read comments and bashed myself in the head with a tack hammer."

Did you guys even red the description? PRESCHOOLERS

If 2=0 5=0 1=0 9=1 0=1 AND 8809=6 then 8=2
Took about a minute and a half. Never heard of the "HOLE" method.

Ugh...this was not obvious! Who in the hell counts the "holes" in numbers???
