Smart people, I have a riddle for you that I can't solve myself. Can you solve this equation? I'm stuck. Briefing: It's not about calculating but seeing (and finding the difference between the numbers), yet I haven't come up with the missing number. Who can?

@naii "8" has 2 holes. "1" has 0 holes. "4" has 1 hole, etc. It's the shape of the numeral.

@naii There's a very similar riddle which is something like:

CAT = 5
PUPPY = 6
BIRD = 5
MASTODON = ???

@naii Yeah, I got your riddle relatively quickly because I'd seen this incarnation before. The hint given was something along the lines of "A 5-year-old will have an easier time of this than an adult."
