• I think the resultat is 48

• CEW

I belive the answer is 1 + 10 X 2 = 22

• Kathy

1 horse =10
1 horseshoe = 2
1 boot = 1

1 boot (1) + 1 horse (10) = 11 x 1 horseshoe (1) = 11

• rene

Horse = 10, Horse Shoe = 4, Boot = 2
Final answer 2 + 10 x 4 = 42

• Ruth Woldemichael

I believe that the answer is 48.

• Ruth Woldemichael

I believe the anser is 48

Do you need the whole equation or just the answer? 22

Interesting puzzle. Lets assume this is standard Maths.

So 3 x Horse = 30; 1 x Horse = 10; Horse = 10.
And Horse + 2 x Horse Shoes = 18; 1 x Horse Shoe = 4; Horse Shoe = 4.
And Horse Shoe – Boots = 2; Boots = 2.

Now for the tricky part, because it depends on how they teach you to use a calculator and that is country dependent the moment.

For Australia, the answer would be:

Boot + Horse * Horse Shoe = 2 + (10 * 4) = 42.

And this would be my answer. And it uses the BODMAS rules of mathematical operator precedence and assumes you put the formula into the calculator and hit the equals sign at the end.

I believe you can also end up with the following:

Boot + Horse * Horse Shoe = 2 + 10 * 4 = 48.

This comes from 2 + 10 = 12. 12 x 4 = 48.

So if you are taught to hit equals after each step of the equation, this would be your answer.

There was a time Maths was considered a universal language.

• Andrew

Horse= 10
Horsehoe= 4
Boots= 2
“Order of operations” gives a result of 42

• David Mallon

The result seems to be 48

• Hendrik Jacobsz

All the pictures give us an indication that we must concentrate when we try to solve a problem.
The following is true
1 x Horse = 10
2 x Horse shoes = 4 (1 x Horse shoe = 2)
2 x boots = 2 (1 x boot = 1)
1 + 10 * 2 = 22 in South Africa, or if it uses the BODMAS rules of mathematical operator precedence
Boot + Horse * Horse Shoe = 1 + (10 * 2) = 21

• Mukund Giri

It’s straight 22. A horse is 10, A full horse shoe is 4, half is 2. Two boots =2 Therefore 1 boot is equal to 1. with these values We get 22

• Farid

Horse = 10
Horse shoe=2
Boot=1
10+1*2=21

• Mohammed

Horse= 10
Horsehoe= 4
Boots= 2

1+10*2=22

• Cheri

1 + 10 x 2 = 22

• Kathy

1 horse =10
1 horseshoe = 2
1 boot = 1

1 boot (1) + 1 horse (10) = 11 x 1 horseshoe (2) = 22

• Bea

OK. 1 Horse is 10, 2 horseshoes is 4, one horseshoe is 2, 2 boots is 2 so 1 boot is 1.
1 boot plus 1 horse is 11 times 2 (1 horseshoe) is 22.
Just do what’s there.

• M Rajagopala Rao

The answer 1+10 x 2 = 21

• Mikell

I think the answer is thirteen.

• I think the answer is 48

• Alisa

1 + 10 x 4 = 44
