ships are 20 each, tentacles are 1 each, barrels are 1 each. rules of math order of operation multiply, divide, add, subtract.

1 + (20 x 4) = 81

la réponse est 84 ( 20 + 20 + 20 = 60 / 20 + 5 + 5 = 30 / 5 - 2 = 3 / 1 + 20 x 4 = 84

Ship = 20

Octopus =  5

Barrel = 1

Octopus - 1 leg = 4

(1+20)x4=84

POORLY designed riddle iff'n ye were t'ask me.  Me mathematician cousins be grindin' them teeth as there be NO PARENTHESIS about the barrel an' ship, nor about the ship an' kraken.  This way thar can be TWO correct answers dependin' which way ye add and multiply, or multiply an' then add.

Yer ship be 20; yer kraken be 5, an' yer barrel (rum I pray) be 1.

Answer nummer 1:  Why it be 105, iff'n ye add the barrel to the ship (1 an' 20) an' THEN multiply by th' kraken (5); =21 X 5 =105.


Answer nummer 2:  Why it be 101, iff'n ye multiply the ship by the kraken (20 X 5) an' THEN add th' barrel (1); = (20 X 5) + 1 = 101.


Me best guess be 105, since we mostly read left to right an' that is the more natural order of the puzzle.  But to a strict mathematician, BOTH answers be correct an' acceptable.
