Ship 20 Oct 5 Barrel 1

So (1+20)x4 {5-1 legs} = 84

Three ships as powerful as can be added together give thee Sixty.

Each ship therefore must be worth twenty as can be plainly seen.

Now One ship worth twenty and two Kraken be worth thirty it seems,

and and twenty from thirty leaves ten which is plain

making each Kraken worth five is now known.

One whole Kraken - two barrels fine rum gives us but three

making each barrel only one would it seem.

So then a barrel  plus a Kraken value of five times a ship value of twenty

would appear to be an amount of one plus twenty times five would seem

This would give a value of 1 and a hundred, but there be something strange afoot

the kraken in the last line be missing a tentacle, so can not be worth as much as the krakens worth five.

It must be worth only 4 then you see making the final value be but eighty plus one.

So after such deception and trickery would make any pirate proud,

I comes to the conclusion that eighty-one is the last value and true worth of the puzzle.

The value of the last line is 81

I know this probably isn't the right place to post this but I have been unable to find anywhere to contact anyone about my problem.

RubyCove 895 ; -1655  I have never been able to build more than one building at a time others can build two.  Is there a reason for this.

Thank you for any help you can give me.

The answer is 81! 

Ship = 20
Octopus = 5 (each tentacle =1)
Barrel =1

20+20+20=60
20+5+5=30
5-2=3
1+20*4=81

Line 1 :  20 + 20 + 20 = 60

Line 2 : 20 + 5 +5 = 30

Line 3 : 5 - 2 = 3

Note 1 : Single Barrel shows that it's value = 1

Note 2 : Missing tentacle on Octopus shows that it's value = 4

Note 3 : There are no parenthesis to show an order to do the math therefore math calculations should be maintained as seen!

Line 4 : 1 + 20 x 4 = 84


This was a curious and interesting puzzle.  Hope to see more in the future!


Addendum :

based on Order of Operations Mathematics Rules

My answer has been proven incorrect ... 81 is the correct answer following these rules.

Really loved this puzzle ... made me research a topic I'd not considered in many years ... thanks for the fun!
