It's surprisingly tricky.

25? Unless I'm missing something, that seemed super easy.

Treating it as an algebra question, agreed. And I get 25 as well.

D'oh! Now I see where I went wrong.

-- Steve's eye got lazy. That's his excuse and he's sticking to it.

There's at least three tricks in it.

You did miss something! 25 is wrong.

Oh yes, I see what I missed!

In that case I need to know what "two things next to each other" is notating.

If it's addition, 15

If it's multiplication, 19.1421356237

I think of them like physical objects: 2 fries + 2 fries = 4, therefore 1 fries = 1.

But yes.

Like I said above, three tricks. None complicated, all just waiting to trip you up.

So 15 is the correct answer? If so, I get it. If not, I'm lost!

I believe 15 is the most correct answer, yes.

x + x + x = 30; x = 10
[10] + y + y = 20; y = 5
[5] + 2z + 2z = 9; z = 1
5 + 1 * 10 = 50 if I remember my operator precedence right.

Where did I screw up?

Edit: missed the doubling

#1: (5+1)*10 is not 50.

#2: Multiplication comes before addition. So the last line is 5 + (1*10)

But you got the other two tricks.

I get around 1090 calories and pricing and participation may vary. It is a Big Mac, medium fries and a medium coke right?
