So I've been trying to learn about bitcoin, I'm a kid. It is really confusing. Is BitCoin basically a game since you solve math equations for money? And also, do the math equations do anything or are they just random and because you solve them, you get a reward for your intelligence?

Mostly done by specificaly made machines like this one: Antminer S9

The solving process is called "mining". It's useful to make creating blocks with transactions hard and that makes it hard to spend Bitcoins that were already spent.
