You are right, I have made so many mistakes, It is indeed

A + X *Y = ?

1 +20 *5 = 21*5 = 105


and the last one it is 1+20*4


it is nt 5,it is 4 because as you can see there is 4 arrows on the last line it was a realy tricky riddle .


once you got the right numbers its easy to find the result but the result can be 81 or 84 depends on your method


if you do  (1+20)*4=84

if you do   1+(20*4)=81


so whith the same numbers you can have different results depends on where you put the brackets,according to the few maths i know first you add up the numbers and then you do multipication  in case of there is no brackets to make it clear

This has got to be one of the best and interesting threads posted in forum for a long time.

Theories and opinions abound, and all in a good way.
