In the course of your exploration of the corridors of Hogwarts, you will have come across, from the very first hours, strange doors (called Arithmancy) on which triangles are depicted at the vertices of which there are numbers and symbols. In the vicinity of these doors (or not far away, just use Revelio to find them) you will also find panels with which you can interact, hitting them with your basic magic.

Arithmancy | Hogwarts Legacy: how to open doors with numbers and symbols
The basic concept is simple: in the center of each triangle there is the figure that you will have to obtain by adding the three vertices. Usually, at the top you will find either a number, a symbol and question marks (which represent the value that you will have to find yourself), or even directly two symbols and question marks. The symbols represent animals or mythological creatures typical of Harry Potter folklore and all correspond to a number between 0 and 9. The values do not change from one door to another, so you can rest assured and always use the same reasoning for each .
When you understand which two numbers are missing to solve the puzzle, just hit the panels until you reach the corresponding symbol. If both are correct, you will be able to approach it, open the door and collect whatever kind of treasure is enclosed inside. In the following lines we will get to know the symbols and the corresponding values, then we will make an excursus to give you all the solutions of the doors present in Hogwarts.
