## Shoe Man Whistle

Hint:

The third equation has a term with a pair of whistles. The last line involves a single whistle.

Furthermore, the man in the second and third lines are wearing a whistle, but the man in the last line is not wearing a whistle. Presumably the value of the whistle should be accounted for to get the correct answer.

The pictures can be translated into the following equations:

shoes + shoes + shoes = 30

shoes + (man + whistle) + (man + whistle) = 20

(man + whistle) + 2(whistles) + 2(whistles) = 13

shoes + (man) x (whistle) = ?

From the first equation we can solve for the shoes value:

shoes + shoes + shoes = 30

3(shoes) = 30

shoes = 10

We can then solve the second equation for the (man + whistle) value:

shoes + (man + whistle) + (man + whistle) = 20

10 + 2(man + whistle) = 20

2(man + whistle) = 10

man + whistle = 5

Then we solve the third equation for the whistle:

(man + whistle) + 2(whistles) + 2(whistles) = 13

5 + 4(whistles) = 13

4(whistles) = 8

whistle = 2

We also need to solve for the value of the man:

man + whistle = 5

man + 2 = 5

man = 3

Now we can evaluate the final expression, remembering the order of operations that multiplication should be evaluated before addition:

shoes + (man) x (whistle) = ?

10 + 3 x 2

= 10 + 3 x 2

= 10 + 6

= 16

YES NO

## German Shepard Riddle

Hint: Form of transportation.

## Banana Clock Riddle

Hint: 1. Look closely at the clock.
2. Number of Bananas.
3. Some thing regarding the sides of the Shapes figure.

38

Logic :

From 1st the hexagon shape has value 15.

The shape has 15 edges(6 of hexagon,5 of Pentagon and 4 of Square)

From 2nd we get value of one bunch of bananas is 4.

So each banana has value of 1.

From 3rd we get that each clock has value of 3.

Which resembles the time on the clock which is 3.

Hence by using these insights, we get the last required values as

Clock = 2 (2 in the clock)

Bananas = 3 (3 bananas in the bunch)

Hexagon = 11 (Hexagon[6 sides] and pentagon[5 sides], so 6+5=11)

So required value is

2+3+3x11=?

2+3+33=? (Multiply first - Bodmas rule)

5+33=38 and hence the answer is 38.

YES NO
