    (111*)* = (11 + 111)*

    You could start by defining the * operation.

    Was there a result?

    I thought 11*11 or something, or that each side of the 'equation' would become zero, or so. Then 0 could equal 0.? Only, the expression does not make sense to me.

    Since, what do the little stars mean? Aren't there some numbers still missing, to put some meaning in?
