Pay attention to the bottom line! Can you guess what number goes at the end?

Take your time. Are you ready to find out the answer?

The solution

  1. Let’s look at the first line. The identical roses are equal 60. It means we have to split 60 into 3. A rose is equal to 20.
  2. In the second line, we already know the meaning of a rose. Then, we have 2 identical violet flowers. 20 + 2 violets equals 30. 30 minus 20 equals 10 for both violets This means that the value of 1 violet is 5.
  3. In the third line, we have 5 minus 2 yellow flowers equals 3; so the value of a yellow flower is 1.
  4. Now, it is easy enough to solve the puzzle: 20 + 1 x 5 = 25

Did it take you long to figure out the right answer? Even if you didn’t come up with a solution at once, there is no need to worry.
