big-brother-logo.gifThe ‘robbers’ have been giving a gruelling 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)=

Darnel said: “I don’t understand. This is crazy.”

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

He said: “I gotta go to the toilet.”
