## 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
