When Something Does/Doesn´t \"Make Sense\"

Does this mathematic equation makes sense to you?

Hold on, I am trying to make sense of the current situation.

This does not make sense, he would have called  at the agreed time.

Is there an equal expression of this in Turkish? I realize that the usual response in Turkish might just be anlamak, or its varous tense markers, in that one would just state anlıyorum/anlamıyorum.

But can you express the general statement, where applicable, that something "indeed makes sense", or "doesn´t seem to make sense", etc? Are there different ways to use it, depending on mood, and context?

Just seems like in the year and half Ive been studying, Ive never come across it, nor had I thought about it actually, until now.

Does this mathematic equation makes sense to you? = Bu matematiksel denklem sana BİR ANLAM İFADE EDİYOR MU? or Bu matematiksel denklem sence ANLAMLI MI?

Hold on, I am trying to make sense of the current situation. Bekle, şu andaki durumu ANLAMAYA ÇALIŞIYORUM.

This does not make sense, he would have called  at the agreed time. = Bunu ANLAMIYORUM, anlaştığımız saatte arayabilirdi. or Bu ANLAMSIZ, anlaştığımız saatte arayabilirdi.

Bu matematik denklemi sana anlamlı geliyor mu?

Bu matematik denklemi sence anlamlı mı?

Hold on, I am trying to make sense of the current situation.

Bekle, mevcut durumun ne anlama geldiğini anlamaya çalışıyorum.

Bekle, mevcut durumdan anlam çıkarmaya çalışıyorum.

Bu anlamlı gelmiyor, üzerinde anlaşılan zamanda aramış olurdu.

Bu anlamsız (anlamlı değil), üzerinde anlaşılan zamanda aramış olurdu.

make sense = anlamlı gelmek/olmak

make sense of something = birşeyden anlam çıkarmak

not make sense = anlamlı gelmemek/olmamak; anlamsız olmak
