If the axes are 10, then yes, the answer is a negative 100 (-100)...but, in proving the axes prior (arrow (5) + axes side by side (which should mean multiplied) shows the axes would be the squared X2 to = 20- - -so axes would be the square root of 20, meaning 4.47213592499579blahblah. So ........(square root of 20) minus 30 times 5 =  I know just enough math to make me dangerous

Assuming 2 axes means 2 x axe, instead of being a different symbol in which case the puzzle can not be solved, or meaning axe x axe (or axe squared) which is sufficiently unlikely that I'm not going to bother doing the relatively simple math.

if you are using the proper algebraic order of operations where multiplication takes precedence over subtraction, the answer is -140

if you are incorrectly just doing operations left to right it would be -100


this is an ambiguous and poorly designed puzzle.
