now

you have the numbers listed as A*7********7*4=now lets change that up and give some of these * a symbol.

such that it becomes AX7q******G7P4

now it’s consecutive number (1,2,3 etc ) whose sum give a value of 20 so we can form the following equations

A+X+7=20 (1)

7+p+4=20 (2)

x+7+q=20 (3)

g+7+p=20 (4)

——————————————–

from equation (4) we get

———————————————

g+7+p=20 (4)

7=20-(g+p)

———————————————————

substituting 7=20-(g+p) into (2) we get

20-(g+p)+p+4=20

-g = – 4

g=4

———————————————————-

substituting this value (g=4) into equation 4

4+7+p=20

p=9

———————————————————–

now I don’t know if I should make this assumption but it seems that the numbers loop so

I’m expecting the value of A to be 9.

as A*7********7*4

=AX7q******G7P4

=AX7q*******4794

SO FROM LOOKING AT THIS THE VALUE OF A IS 9

So then the star must be 4, and that makes A = 9.
