Taking its cues from the word-guessing game Wordle Nerdle challenges players to discover the daily hidden mathematical calculation within around six attempts.

If you’re finding it difficult to solve today’s Nerdle puzzle don’t worry – we’re here to assist you. After all, we obtained our bachelor’s degrees in chemistry and completed three semesters of calculus for a reason.

## Nerdle December 9, 2023 Answer

The Nerdle answer for today, December 9, 2023 is

1 * 12 – 9 = 3.

## Optimal Initial Approaches for the Traditional Nerdle Game

In Nerdle it’s crucial to identify the numbers and operators in the solution using the fewest attempts possible. The following two equations are the most effective starting points as they allow you to encompass all the symbols in the game within just two attempts the minimum number needed to accomplish this task.

For your initial attempt consider 07-3*1=4. It’s worth noting that you can prepend a ‘0’ before any number.

For your second attempt try 56/8+2=9.

Afterwards, observe the board to identify the squares that turn green and in your subsequent try to replicate those symbols in the same positions. For symbols marked in purple consider rearranging their positions. Any black squares indicate symbols that are no longer needed. Keep in mind that the solution may include numbers and symbols appearing multiple times.”

## When does Nerdle refresh or start a new one?

Nerdle resets once per day. The reset time for Nerdle is at midnight GMT which translates to 4 pm PST 7 pm EST and 1 am in GMT+1 time zone.

## How to Play Nerdle

In the game of Nerdle, you’ll encounter an eight-square grid where you can arrange numbers and operators according to your preference. So long as you adhere to the principles of mathematics avoid placing operators after the equals sign and construct a functional expression your calculation will be considered a valid guess.

Here’s what each square’s status signifies:

• A black square indicates that the associated number or symbol is not part of the day’s calculation.
• A purple square signifies that the number or symbol is indeed part of the calculation but occupies the wrong square.
• A green square represents a precise hit indicating the correct symbol in the correct position.

You are granted a total of six attempts to pinpoint the correct answer.

## Six Valuable Tips for Navigating Nerdle Puzzles

Nerdle conceals certain strategies and mathematical nuances that may not be immediately apparent. Gaining familiarity with these tips through regular gameplay can significantly enhance your ability to solve future challenges more efficiently requiring fewer attempts.

• Multiplicity of Numbers in the Solution: Don’t forget that numbers can appear multiple times in the answer. For instance, solutions like 09+9-9=9 are valid.
• Flexibility with Negative Numbers: While Nerdle doesn’t allow negative results in tries it does accept negative numbers within the calculation. For example, 1-9+17=9 is a legitimate attempt where the final calculation (-8+17=9) eventually equals 9.
• Leveraging Zero as a Neutral Number: The number zero can serve as a neutral element to make calculations fit. If you’re certain the solution comprises seven symbols instead of eight and you can’t place the zero anywhere consider adding it before another number such as “09” instead of “9.”
• Using Multiplication or Division by One: You can always multiply or divide a number by one to yield the same number as the result. This can be vital when you know that one is part of the solution but can’t find the right spot for it.
• Interpreting Purple and Black Squares: If a number appears both in purple and black squares in your attempt it means it’s part of the equation the number of times it’s shown in purple. For instance, if you see two purple squares with the number nine and two black squares with the same number it signifies that nine appears twice in the solution.
• Order of Operations with Multiplication and Division: When using multiplication after division, remembers to solve the equation from left to right multiplying the final result of the division by that number not the denominator of the division. In most cases, 9/33 equals 9 not 9/ (33) which equals 1. An exception to this rule is in Maxi Nerdle where brackets are available for grouping operations.

## Modes of Nerdle

Nerdle offers a variety of game modes on its website each with its unique challenge. The initial Classic involves solving an eight-digit puzzle as discussed at the beginning of the article. In addition to Classic there are several other game modes available:
