    Mathematics equation debate

    I'm having a debate with my brother about an equation and want to clarify who is correct.

    The equation is as follows:

    UT = Qn + An

    UT = All Questions unknown or known + All Answers unknown or known
    Qn = All Questions unknown or known
    An = All Answers unknown or known



    Can someone confirm if this is the equivalent of saying:

    Zn = Xn + Yn

    or

    Z = X + Y

    Also is this a legitimate equation. Just to clarify the n in both equations equals all unknown and known, the n does not equal to the power of something it just represents an unknown amount.

    Sounds like it could be ok, but there is limited context here.
