Puzzle Answer is 4
Football + Football + Football = 18 = 18/3
Wall clock = 9/3 = 3
Table fan x Table fan – Table fan = 6
(Table fan) x (Table fan – 1) = 6
from 3 x 2 table fan = 3
Thus wall clock x Football – Table fan = 3 x 6 – 3 = 15.
But, if you look carefully, it is not a simple math equation, foot ball in last equation is different than others
wall clock in 4th equation having different time than the ones in second equation.
Similarly table fan has 2 blades than 3.
So how do we solve it?
In the first equation, black marks on football are 6, therefore football value is 6
In the second equation, clock shows 3pm so clock vale is 3
In the third equation, table fan has 3 blades, thus having a value of 3 OR you can say a table fan with 3 blades has value 3, thus with 2 blades should have a value 2.
In the last equation clock is 2 and foot ball marks are 3, and table fan has 2 blades.
2 x 3 – 2 = 4
