Column1 Col 2 Col 3 Col 4 Col 5

Row 1 A # A 3 E

2 E A # C 3

3 3 E A # C

4 C 3 E A #

5 # C 3 E A

Substitute every # in an odd-numbered row with a 6. Substitute every C in an odd-numbered column with a 4. Which

pair of rows and columns, when their numbers are added together, equal 13?

Answer: Row 3 Column 1

When I do what they say i get:

row 1: A 6 A 3 E

row 3: 3 E A 6 C

row 5: 6 C 3 E A

well if u add row 1, 3, or 6 u get 9

for the columns I got:

col 1: A E 3 4 #

col 3: A # A E 3

col 5: E 3 4 # A

total for col 1 = 7

total for col 3 = 3

total for col 5 = 7

How did they get row 3 column 1 = 13?

THank u
