There are 6 possible solutions:


1.  -140  

If the men are considered added together in the 3rd problem, and the quiver of arrows is the same value no matter how many arrows are in it. 

2.  -102.5 

If the men are considered added together in the 3rd problem, and the value of the quiver of arrows decreases determined solely by the number of arrows.  The quiver of arrows in the final problem would be worth 1/4 less (25%) than the others.

3.  10 - 30x

If the men are considered added together in the 3rd problem, and the value of the quiver of arrows in the final problem is undeterminable due to the difference in the number of arrows since the value of the quiver itself would have to be taken into account also, and that value can not be determined with the information given. 

4. -145.52786404421054

If the men are multiplied in the 3rd problem, and the quiver of arrows is the same value no matter how many arrows are in it.

5. -108.02786404421054

If the men are multiplied in the 3rd problem, and the value of the quiver of arrows decreases determined solely by the number of arrows. The quiver of arrows in the final problem would be worth 1/4 less (25%) than the others.

6. 4.472135955 -30x

If the men are multiplied in the 3rd problem, and the value of the quiver of arrows in the final problem is undeterminable due to the difference in the number of arrows since the value of the quiver itself would have to be taken into account also, and that value can not be determined with the information given.

-110


1 boat + 1 boat + 1 boat = 90 => 1 boat = 30

1 boat - 5 arrows - 5 arrows = 20 => 30 - 10 arrows = 20 => 30 - 20 = 10 arrows => 10 = 10 arrows => 1 arrow = 1

5 arrows + 2 persians = 25 => 5 + 2 persians = 25 => 2 persians = 20 => 1 persian = 10

1 persian - 1 boat x 4 arrows => 10 - 30 x 4 => 10 - 120 => -110

30 + 30 +30 = 90

30 - 5 -5 = 20

5 + 10 + 10 = 25

10 - (30*5) = -140


Donc - 140

Aouh !

-145.53 or -154.47

 because arow= 5, boat=30 and the archer might be 4.47 or -4.47 because multiplicate two negative is positive

√20=4.47213595
