Answer:

Look closely and notice 2 things in above picture:

  1. No. of chocolate pieces on each cookie
  2. Time in clock

Cookie(10 chocs) + Cookie(10 chocs) + Cookie(10 chocs)  = 30 ==>  Cookie with 10 chocs = 10

2 bananas + 2 bananas + Cookie(10 chocs)  = 14 

4 Bananas + 10 =14 ==>  Banana = 1

2 Bananas + Clock(3 O’clock) + Clock(3 O’clock)  = 8

2*1 + 2 Clock(3 O’clock)  = 8 ==> Clock(3 O’clock) = 3

Clock(2 O’clock) + banana + banana X Cookie with 7 chocs = ??

Now remember the PEDMAS rule. 

Here’s an explanation of the rules given in PEMDAS:

  1. P as the first letter means you complete any calculations in grouping symbols first.
  2. Next, look for exponents, E. Ignore any other operation, and take any numbers with exponents to their respective powers.
  3. Even though M for multiplication in PEMDAS comes before D for division, these two operations actually have the same priority. Complete only those two operations in the order they occur from left to right.
  4. Even though A for addition is in PEMDAS before S for subtraction, these two operations also have the same priority. You look for these last two operations from left to right and complete them in that order.

We have already resolved values of each item which is:

Cookie with 10 chocs = 10 ==> it means each choc piece is equal to 1

Banana = 1

Clock with time as 3’o clock = 3 ==> it means if clock is at 1 o’clock value would be 1

 

So as per equation values would be:

Equation: Clock(2 O’clock) + banana + banana X Cookie with 7 chocs = ??

         2 + 1 + 1 X 7 ==> 2 + 1 + 7 = 10

Answer of above puzzle is 10

    My business partner was married to a guy with a PhD in mathematics and managed to accrue assets if about $2 Million in 30 years. I am a high school dropout and our partnership increased her net worth by $4 million in 3 years. Using the logic applied to your puzzle I am pleased that I am not handicapped
    by education. There are no brackets in the puzzle quarantining any particular action, so therefore one should proceed in logical order from left to right

    I didn’t even go to high school, and even I know that when the parentheses aren’t physically in the calculation, one is to mentally insert them where they would normally go, which is around the multiplication. One does not, in fact, simply proceed from left to right in “logical” order.
