The answer is simply 4, why can't u guys read the psychology behind the question? The suitcase and the 2 newspapers has cancelled themselves. The pile of book has been reduced to 4 so check again!!!

ItsQuinn:briefcase=10 newspaper=2 books=51=4 therefore you introduce bodmas where multiplication comes before subtraction so we have 10(2x8) = 6

photoshoot:ok bros.. Let us represent a briefcase as a, a newspaper as b, and, a book as c.. Therefore we have the following equations.. a + a = 20....... Eqn (i), 2a = 20, a = 20/2, a = 10 In the second equation, a x 2b = 20, (!there are 2newspapers in the second equation), thus, a x 2b = 20..........eqn (ii), but a = 10, therefore, 10 x 2b = 20, 20b = 20, b = 20/20, b = 1 In the third equation, 5c / b = 10, (!there are five books placed on top of one another and 1newspaper in this third equation), 5c / b = 10............eqn (iii), but b = 1, therefore, 5c/1 = 10, 5c = 10, c = 10/5, c = 2 Now to the question which is equation four.. a  2b x 4c = ? (!note that there are 2newspapers and only four notebooks in this case), therefore, a  2b x 4c = ? ..............(eqn iv), but a = 10, b = 1 and c = 2, a  2b x 4c = 10  2(1) x 4(2) = 10  2 x 8 by bodmas, you multiply before subtraction, so, 10  2 x 8 becomes 10  16 = 6 1 Like

Answer 6 Reason: One bag @10 one newspe@1 one book@2 so bag(10)2newspapers(1+1)*4books(2*4) using bodmas therefore 10(2*8 ) =6Answer 6 Reason: One bag @10 one newspe@1 one book@2 so bag(10)2newspapers(1+1)*4books(2*4) using bodmas therefore 10(2*8 ) =6Answer 6 Reason: One bag @10 one newspe@1 one book@2 so bag(10)2newspapers(1+1)*4books(2*4) using bodmas therefore 10(2*8 ) =6
