This is a 8th grade math problem...

Can anyone figure this out?

Yes... took me about 3 minutes. If that.

Start with the 2x2=4 part and it all pretty much follows from there. 2 must represent a single digit other then itself which when multiplied by itself isn't itself and yet the answer is a single digit. This rules out 0, 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 so you know 2 represents 3. That then tells you 4 must represent 9. And if 4x4=67 then you also know what 6 and 7 represent. It all follows about as easily as that.

Geez this question is so poorly worded I had no idea what it was asking for. Figuring out what they mean is harder than the problem!
