Here’s some easy level basic Maths Riddle.

Look at the pictures and find the sum of the animals shown in the image.

To be represent the equation in words, we can write;

Lion + Elephant = 6

Hippo + Lion = 10

Elephant + Hippo = 8

Lion + Elephant + Hippo = ?

 

Answer:

We have 3 equations;

Lion + Elephant = 6

Hippo + Lion = 10

Elephant + Hippo = 8

Adding all 3 of them we get;

2(lion) + 2(elephant) + 2(hippo) = 24

Solving it we get;

2(lion + elephant + hippo) = 24

(lion + elephant + hippo) = 24/2 = 12

Therefore;

Lion + Elephant + Hippo = 12
