Christmaths Advent Calendar 2013: Day 8

This year’s Christmaths Advent Calendar will have a question for every day in December up to and including Christmas Day, each one featuring a new mathematical challenge.

Each of the eight numbers is only used once.

The numbers given are the totals for each row and column.

Each symbol has the same value wherever it appears.


Find the number that each symbol represents.
