this is a test of intelligence, reasoning and visual perception.

the values are shown by the pictures.
6 vertices stars, 5 vertices stars.
3 'o' clock, 2 'o' clock
4 fan blades, 3 fan blades.

let the star=x
let the fan =y
let the clock =z


x +x +x =18 , x=6
2y + 6 =14 , y=4
2z - 4 =2 , z =3

y + z * x=4 + 3 * 6 =22 (using BODMAS)

Star + Star + Star = 18,
3 Stars = 18,
Therefore, 1 star = 18/3 =6,
star = 6

Fan + Fan + Star = 14,
2 Fans + 6 = 14,
2 Fans = 14-6,
2 Fans = 8,
1 Fan = 8/2,
Fan = 4
,

Clock + Clock - Fan = 2,
2 Clocks - 4 = 2
,
2 Clocks = 2 + 4
,
2 Clocks = 6
,
Clock = 6/2
,
Clock = 3
,

Therefore,
Fan + Clock *
Star * Star = ?
,
4 + 3 * 6*6 = ?
,
Introducing BODMAS
,
Because M= multiplication comes first before A = addition.
Then, 4 + 108 = ?
,
112 = ?
,
Therefore, ? = 112

i think the bolded should be 2x6 OR 6+6 since it is two stars

No! Each star is solo... my bad on the statement but had to be square

The value of the star is dependent on the edges 1st stars have 6 edges, last stars have 5 edges.

The value of d fan is the number of blades it has, sum have 4 blades and some have 3 blades.

The value of the clock is the hour (1st clocks say 3oclock) second clock says 2oclock.
Re: Mathematicians And Thinkers Can You Solve This by Nobody: 9:31pm On Jun 07, 2017
The answer is either 23 or 53 depending on your interpretation.

The fan + The clock + Double star.

The fan has three edges, The clock reads at 2'o clock while the star has five points.

Solution.
You can take the double star as 5*5 = 25 or you take it as 5+5 = 10. Taking any of this figure depend on your interpretation. The expected solution will be

3 + 2*25 = 53
or
3 + 2 * (5 +5) = 23.

For me, I go with 53

You are right. The answer can also be calculated as 53. It's all about perception

First and foremost you observe and note all the equations.

Observations: three 6 edges stars,two 5 edges stars,two 4 fan blades,one three fanblades, two clocks that reads 3'O'clock and one clock that reads 2'0'clock

Now we are good to solve and calculate.
From the first equation
6 edges star + 6 edges star+ 6 edges star = 18
6+6+6=18
18=18 (meaning each edges represents 1)

From equation 2


4 fan blades+4 fan blades+ 6 edges star(6*1=6) =14
8 blades+6=14
8 blades=14- 6
8 blades=8
(meaning each fan blade represents 1)

For equation 3
3'0'clock + 3'0' clock - 4 fan blades(4*1=4) = 02
3'0' clock + 3'0' clock =2+4( note that -4 crossed over to the other side to become +4)

3'0' clock + 3'0' clock = 6
6'0' clock=6 (meaning each time represents 1 multiply by its reading)

And finally the last equation
Note: 3 fan blades(3*1=3) and a clock reads 2'0' clock (2*1=2) and a double stars with 5 edges (meaning 5+5=10 edges=10*1=10)
So we can now fix it into the equation to get the final answer
3 fan blades(3*1=3) + (2'0' clock=2*1=2) + 5 doubled edges star(5*1=5)

3+(2*10)=3+20=23
The correct answer is 23
Thank you all
