Take two numbers, such that the square of the first, plus the square of the second, shall equal 8; while the first, plus the product of the first and second, shall equal 6. What are the two numbers?

Jack had only $**2**, but he needed $3 for his cab fare home. He went to a pawn shop and pawned his $**2** for $1.50. Jack then bumped into Don and told him that he would sell him his $**2** pawn ticket for $1.50. Dan agreed.

Given two 2s, "plus" can be changed to "times" without changing the results: **2** + **2**= **2** x **2**.
The solution with three numbers is easy too: 1 + **2** + 3= 1 x **2** x 3.
Now find the answer for 4 numbers and for 5 numbers.

123 = 0
4235 = 0
656 = **2**
5390 = **2**
8890 = 6
1001 = **2**
19235 = 1
