Coming back to the original puzzle. Its interesting how differently people approach a problem.
Actually the solution to this and similar puzzles (i.e. numbercrossword puzzle) goes like this: 6666, 9999, 0000 are all 4 so 0, 6 or a 9 equals 1. 8809 = 6 so x+x+1+1=6, x = 2 2171 = 0 so 1, 2, 7 are all equal to 0. 5555 = 0, ergo 5 = 0 2581 = 0+0+2+0 = 2 The answer is 2

Madis731: Why did you assume a simple addition operator? And why only taking symbols singly at a time? Perhaps some symbols are negative values?
There are actually an infinite number of possible solutions. Although most of them will be incredibly complex they would still be valid solutions.
