You don't have to wait 24 hours. They send the code right away.

Oh, and keep in mind that the prize is not tradeable or sendable.

To explain the math to anyone who wants to know:

Q: (6*3)/(4+10-5) = ?

When you have a question like this, the first thing you have to do is figure out what to do first. The way to remember it is the word "PEMDAS", which stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication&Division, Addition&Subtraction.

What that means is that the first thing you have to do is the calculations within parentheses. That means these things: ()

In this question, we have two sets of parentheses. We start at the left and move to the right, which means we have to do "(6*3)" first. That means six times three, which is eighteen. Now that we know that, we can now say that the math question is:

Quote:

18/(4+10-5)

Next we take the bunch in the next set of parentheses, which is "(4+10-5)". There are a few calculations to do here, so which one do we do first? We go back to PEMDAS. First, is there anything in parentheses? Nope. Any exponents? Nope. Any multiplication or division? Nope. Any addition or subtraction? Yep. Which one do we do first? As always, we move from the left to the right. So we start with "4+10". That equals 14, so now we know the question is:

Quote:

18/(14-5)

We still have stuff in parentheses, so we have to keep doing that. "(14-5)". That equals 9. So now our question looks like this:

Quote:

18/9

That means eighteen divided by nine. And eighteen divided by nine is...two!
