The answer is simply 40.Let me give u a clue. You are right by saying the star = 6. Fan=4 and clock=3Ok count the num of edges d fan has which is 6. The fan has 4 blades and check the clock, it shows 3 O'clockNow 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 = 40No 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 Re: Mathematicians And Thinkers Can You Solve This by Slowvenom(m): 6:36am On Jun 09, 2017 byteHead: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. Re: Mathematicians And Thinkers Can You Solve This by Slowvenom(m): 6:40am On Jun 09, 2017 hamilton62: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, ? = 112Correct.
