Alternatively, he could've factored a 6 out of 2016#6. (#=diamond) Then it turns into 6(336#1)=600/x. Divide by 6 and you get

336=100/x, which simplifies into x=100/336, which is 25/84.

Let diamond represent any equation and what do you have? More complex algebra or something else by another name? I do like the idea of just plugging in a simple variable, 1 in this case, to at least start somewhere...

Srsly, a 5 minute video on this joke problem? Anyone could see that diamond is a binary operations so there aren't that many choices. The obvious one is division and it satisfies the first premise so it's division. This is a 20 second problem... And also what happened to you Richard ;_;.
