Leonidas was given the same numbers and rules and told to create an expression that equals 52.
This is what he came up with:

5(6+3) + 7

Lola was also given the same numbers and rules and told to create an expression that equals 34.
This is what she came up with:

3(6+7) − 5

The solution to this problem is similar to both Leonidas' and Lola's solutions.
