the answer is 19 using bodmas and 40 without bodmas cos counting the pointed end of the star in equation 3 is 8 pointed ends giving 3+2*8

It's a logical question, it has nothing to do wit BODMAS. The answer is simply 40.

Let me give u a clue. You are right by saying the star = 6. Fan=4 and clock=3

Ok count the num of edges d fan has which is 6. The fan has 4 blades and check the clock, it shows 3 O'clock

Now let come to the final question, u will notice that the fan has 3 blades, the clock is showing 2 O'clock and the star now has 8 edges.

Therefore, it will be 3 + 2 * 8 = 40
No matter, how logical a question is with mathematical characteristics, the rules of Arithmetics is phenomenon... It can't change unless you are telling me about it in mars, I might not doubt because I haven't seen it....
No matter how you wiggle in this BODMAS is applied

42 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)
X is raised to power 2. So, wrong.

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
Correct.

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 *

Because M= multiplication comes first before A = addition.
Then, 4 + 108 = ?

Therefore, ? = 112

you so failed it ehn... cheesy

this wasnt meant to test ur intelligence and reasoning alone but ur visual perception.
take a good look at the pictures and note the differences.

U r wrong because u multiplied the stars..U were supposed to add them and that would have given u 4+3*12=40
