Struggling to tackle today’s Nerdle answer? Don’t worry – we are here to help!

Created by Richard and Imogen Mann, Nerdle was conceived as a daily guessing game for maths fans. It’s in a similar vein to  Wordle and its ilk (see: Worldle), the puzzling craze of the past couple of years.

Developed by Marcus Tettmar, Nerdle hopes to make maths accessible and a ‘little less scary’ to everyone. With this mission in mind, the site is also an advocate for Save the Children’s Numeracy Boost campaign.

## Nerdle Premise & Rules

Similarly to Wordle, users are challenged with guessing the maths problem and solution within six tries. Given it’s a little more complex than spelling a five-letter word, the official site summarises its rules as follows:

• You must guess the Nerdle in 6 tries.
• After each user answer, the colour of the tiles will change to show how close your guess was to the solution (a la Wordle), using green, purple and black as its flagship colours.
• Each guess is a calculation, and standard order of operations (think BODMAS).
• You can only use the numbers 0-9, plus, minus, times, brackets or equals.
• The answer must contain one equals.
• Commutative answers are also accepted.

All clear? No? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. Find today’s Nerdle answer below – it’s your last chance to try guess it yourself!
