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
