Hahaha you got my attention @johamilton with the word coffee. 😅

If you do the math the old school way I learned in school the answer is one thing but if you do the math applying some new rule inserting parentheses when there are none you get a different answer, 😅

7 + 10 x 6 = 102 is the old school way and answer

7 + (10 x 6) = 67 is the new fangled way / answer

Which is actually accurate depends on which era math teacher you ask. 😅

@Nix66 I am with you the old way to me is correct this new way that some work out equations make no sense 🙈💓

🌴 = 10

🥛= 7 (I have no pod emoji 😄)

☕️ = 6

So 🥛+ 🌴 x ☕️ = 102

I learned in school that point calculation always takes precedent over line calculation. A bracket only makes sense for exceptions, so if the line calculation is set in brackets, then the bracket is calculated. 🙈😫

And my school days were over 40 years ago. 😂

@siti_payung you're also a math professional, how do you see that? 🤔

Here is my (over-thought and most likely wrong, but thoroughly documented) answer And could my reply be any longer?😏

⬇️

at first, it appears the palm trees are all the same, so the easy answer would be if each palm tree is worth X, the we have X + X + X = 30, or 3X = 30, and the equation solves for X=10.However, closer inspection reveals the third palm tree is actually horizontally reversed from the other two. What does that mean? I can only think it means the third tree's value is reversed from the other two. So if the value of tree 1 and tree 2 are X, then the value of the third 3 is -X. So X + X + =X or X + X - X = 30, which solves for X = 30.

The next section of the puzzle features a palm tree, non reversed, so it must equal 30. Next we have two planters and in the third spot, two planters again, which appear identical. So the equation is X + 2Y + 2Y = 38, we know X=30, so solving:

30 + 2Y + 2Y = 38

2Y + 2Y = 8 (subtracting 30 from each side)

4Y = 8

Y = 8/4

Y = 2, so each Planter = 2

Next section, three identical (as far as I can tell) coffee cups = 18, so

Z + Z + Z = 18

3Z = 18, and

Z=6, and thus each coffee cup = 6

Finally, we have a single planter, plus a non reversed palm tree in a single planter multiplied by a single coffee cup, like so:

X + (30 + 2) X Z

X + 32 X 6 (add inside Parenthesis first)

X + 192 (multiplication first)

30 + 192 = 222

@johamilton

It's more difficult than it seems at the first watch 🤔🤔!

I think that the answer is :

1 palm-tree = 30

1 planter = 2

1 cup = 6

The equation is :

30 + (30 + 2) x 6 = 30 + 192 = 222
