#1 A Viral Brain Teaser
So this “fruit algebra” problem was going around the Internet. What do you think the answer is?
#2 Debate Debate Debate
It looks like an easy problem with the answer being 16. But people could not agree so let’s take a closer look.
#3 Three Apples Equals 30
So if three apples equals 30 then each apple must be 10.
#4 An Apple And Two Banana Bunches
So if that apple is 10 then each bunch of banana equals 4.
#5 Bananas and Coconuts
So if a bunch of bananas is 4 minus coconut equals 2 then the coconut must be 2.
#6 So What’s The Answer?
Coconut (2) plus Apple (10) plus Banana (4) equals 16.
But wait! That’s only half a coconut and the banana bunch has three instead of 4 bananas. So maybe it’s:
Coconut (1) plus Apple (10) plus Banana (3) equals 14.
#7 No Confirmation
The original source of this puzzle has been lost so we’ll never know what the actual answer is.
Do you think it’s 16, 15 or 14?
