Answer:  The Macdonalds sign

www.silversurfers.com (2) Answer:

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

Up close and personal!



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: 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.
