    Can you find the second solution to this simple math problem?

    The first answer is easy but there is a second way to solve it which requires thinking outside of the box.

    Can you figure it out what the final answer is in both equations?

    Thanks from Dr.Knuckles

    Its a math problem that has two legitimate answers but they are different.
