It’s time to remember everything you learned in school and give your brain a good boost by taking part in the math puzzle that most adults struggle to solve.
Before we get started, let’s talk about some ground rules. In the picture above, you can see four equations. Your job is to find the result of the fourth equation with the help of the first three lines.
Keep in mind that all of the three icons, including a parrot, fish, and cat, have different values, and there is only one correct result.
Now, roll up your sleeves and get started! Oh, and you better not forget about PEMDAS.
Once you’re sure you have the correct answer, scroll down to view the solution!
The answer is 4! Here’s how we got to that number.
First of all, let’s assume that C stands for cat, F for fish, and P for parrot.
LINE 1: C + C + C = 24 and 3C = 24. Therefore, C = 8.
LINE 2: C + F + F = 10 and 8 + 2F = 10. Therefore, 2F = 2 and F = 1.
LINE 3: (C + F) ÷ 3 × P = 6 and (9) ÷ 3 × P = 6. Therefore, 3 × P = 6 and P = 2.
LINE 4: F × C ÷ P = 1 × 8 ÷ 2 = 8 ÷ 2 = 4
