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 = 146, 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 7 Likes

Kingtim: 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 1 Like

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 3 Likes
