"Equate this!"

The Puzzler


RAY: This week's puzzler is very simple. I'm going to give you four numbers: 2,3,4, and 5. And they're not Roman numerals, they're the regular old Arabic numerals with which we're all familiar.

You also get a plus sign, and an equal sign. Now, make an equation with some stuff on one side of the equal sign, and some stuff on the other.

At first blush, you might say, "This is easy!" 5+2=3+4...but, you're using two plus signs, and you're only allowed to use one.

Think you know? Drop Ray a note!
