# 100 WC …Pushing through the Earth… (Week 23)

When seekers of wealth push through the Earthen despair they lose there mind of the outside light, The world outside is sealed away and a soul has been trapped in its reality. But is hope and wealth really worth losing sanity. When desire corrupts the soul and the world is sealed away and that leaves you to hide away in the darkness and continue pushing through the Earth. Then some have been successful yet left all away and there old life abandoned. Yet some have over come the desire and never seek riches even if they will return successful. But when desire is controlled maybe it was the only way to keep pushing through the Earth.

# Maths Mate Problem Solving (Sheet 1 Term 1)

Read: Fill in the missing digits in the sum of: 120 + _5_ = 6_5

First I noticed that both numbers in the tens column have been filled in so I added them up then I figured out the final sum of this equation was 695. Then I looked and saw that there was no ones in one of the numbers and there were 5 ones in the answer so I added a 5 to the empty space in they number. And then I added a 5 to the unfilled space because 1 + 5 = 6 and there are 6 hundreds in the answer.

So the answer is 120 + 575 = 695
