Using the above door as an example. The top triangle has a Hydra symbol, ? and the numbers 2, 9. It works out as: 2 + Hydra (3) + ? = 9. To solve it you need to change the ? to 4, which is represented by an owl symbol. You need to turn the ? block to that.

Similarly, the bottom triangle has ?? and the numbers 0, 1, and 4. It works out as: 0 + 1 +?? = 4. To solve it you need to change the ?? to 3, which is represented by a Hydra symbol.
