Answer- 30 – Take the first number in a row, multiply by two and you get the second number, now multiply the second number by three and you get the result.

Answer = 3
Cat = 4, Mouse = 3, Cheese = 2
Then 4 – 3 + 2 = 3

Answer – 81 As you go down, subtract the sum of the separate digits in each number from itself to give the next number.

We have heard there are supposed to be 7 horses, (including some partial horses, like a horse head and rear) I can see all seven, but it does help that that is how many I was looking out for! I can see one on the left looking out, and in the middle, there are four faces clustered together. In that group, the brown nose of one (second from left) covers the right side of the face of the one crouched lowest. To the right is a small horse standing sideways, and above the rear of the other horse, there is another head. Hope that helps … But if you don’t see more than five or six horses (at least in part) then be reassured by the fact that you’re among the many who believe that the real number shown in this picture should be five!

Look closely at this picture. There is something here that shouldn’t be here.


Answer:  The McDonald’s sign


(3 + 5) – 2 = 16 (1 + 7) – 5 = 40 (9 + 2) – 3 = 33 (3 + 6) – 8 = 72 – The answer is 72.

Answer – 5 minutes

EXPLANATION: Your brain screams at you that the answer must be 100, because your intuitive side sees the 5-5-5 pattern in the first example, and 100-100-100 just looks right. But if it takes 5 minutes for 5 machines to make 5 widgets, it doesn’t take 20 times as long for 20 times as many machines to make 20 times the widgets. It will take the same 5 minutes for 100 machines to make 100 widgets, and it will take 5 minutes for 1000 machines to make 1000 widgets, and so on, because each machine spits out one widget every five minutes. That is the rate of widget production for the machines, and it doesn’t change no matter how many machines you are running at once.

Six feet under ground

Answer: Pour the juice from the second glass into the fifth one.


Answer: the ball costs 5 pence and the bat costs £1.05, for a total of £1.10.


Consider these flowers as Blue = B, Orange = ORed = R, and Purple = P

Now according to question, equation as follow;

B + B – O = R      — (1st Equation)

R – O = O             — (2nd Equation)

B + O = P              — (3rd Equation)

R – P + B = ??     — (4th Equation)


Well, in my case, I solved this puzzle by using only 2nd & 3rd equation. If you compared these two equations with each other you will get;

R – O + B + O = O + P  (-O and +O cancel out with each other and equation become)

R + B = O + P

R + B – P = Y (Now compare this equation with the 4th equation of the puzzle and you will get the answer)

Both LHS(Left Hand Side) are equal, therefore RHS(Right Hand Side) should be equal too!

So the answer is ORANGE FLOWER i.e O Ans.

The answer is 30!

In order to solve this question, you need to remember the order in which you do this type of equation. Going by the acronym PEMDAS (parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction), you would have to do the multiplication first and then do the addition.

Another way to look at it is like this:

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + (1 x 0) + 1

= 29 + 0 + 1

= 30

Maths Problem

You Might Just Be a Genius if You Can Solve This Maths Problem

It’s actually quite simple: every number after the equals sign actually represents the results of three sums formed by multiplying, adding, and subtracting the two numbers before the equals sign.

For example, 8 + 2 = 16106

8 x 2 = 16
8 + 2 = 10
8 – 2 = 6

Flower Algebra



Flower Algebra


The answer is 81. Surprised? We got 101 on the first try, but there’s a reason behind the unexpected result. You may have worked out that the pink flower equals 20, the purple flower equals five, and the yellow flower equals one. So, it makes sense that a pink flower times a purple flower (multiplications always go before additions) plus a yellow flower equals 101. 1 + (20 x 5) = 101.

However, what you mightn’t have taken into account is the number of petals on the purple flower. Take another look – there’s only four petals in the last equation. Therefore, if a purple flower with five petals equals five, a purple flower with four petals only equals four. So, 1 + (20 x 4) = 81.

Answer is 40

Here’s How:

Answer: Sum of Opposite Ends is 24. So answer is 20.




There are several assumptions with this algebra question, and this is ours:

Red flower = 20 Blue flower = 5 Yellow flower = 1 each. The final line the blue flower only has 4 petals instead of 5 so the blue flower on this line is only worth 4.  CALCULATION: 1 + 20 + 4= 25




There are several assumptions with this algebra question, and this is ours:

Horse = 10 One Horse Shoe = 2 One Cowboy Boot = 1 each.

CALCULATION: 1 + 10 + 2 = 13


There were some people on train.19 people get off the train at the first stop.17 people get on the train.Now there are 63 people on the train.How many people were on the train to begin with-


It’s all a case of going backwards really. There’s 63 people on the train, which means we need that away from the 17 people who boarded the train – giving us 46 people.

From there, we have to account for the 19 people who got off, and we do this by adding 19 onto 46.

That gives us 65, and our answer.

There were 65 people on the train to begin with.
