You screwed up,

Line 1) Helmet + Quiver - Helmet = 64; therefore Quiver = 64. 

Line 2) Quiver + (Helmet x Helmet) = 96; ergo 64 + (32) = 96; therefore Helmet = square root of 32 ?!?!

Line 3) Quiver + (AA x Square root of 32) = 112; ergo (AA x Square root of 32) = 48; therefore 2 Adjacent Crossed Axes = (48/square root of 32) represented by 2 identical adjacent numerals?!?!?!

Line 4) You owe everyone who wasted their time on this nonsense 2000 sapphires!!

Your equations are jacked...  Too many variables but I will make some guesses to get the answer.


Your first equation is irrelevant.  You add and subtract the same amount so the answer is the quiver of arrows (64).  But this quiver of arrows has 4 arrows in it while the other quivers have 5 arrows, thus making the helmets arbitrary.  They can be anything because you are adding then subtracting them.  No help.


The second equation involves a square root.  So I guessed that you did not want answers in decimals, and because the equation is multiplication and addition, the squared numbers cannot be higher than the sum.  Thus, the highest the helmet can be is 9, which does not work with the other equations.  Trying each number from 8 down to 0 results in the likelihood that the helmet is worth 8.  This makes the 5 arrow quiver worth 32.


Following normal math rules and subtracting and dividing yields the double axes to be worth 10.  Since there are two of them, my second guess would be that each is worth 5 so 2 of them together is 10.  This certainly could be wrong since I added them together and they could be multiplied instead since there is no + sign between them.


Keeping with my first determination on equation three yields a final equation:  8 + 5 + 32 = 45



Not one of your better puzzles because of the ambiguity of it.  Still fun to try to solve.

4 + 4 +80 = 88

the correct solution is 88

This is what i have learnt from past Questions


Note: the 4 arrow Quiver = 64 ...... THUS the 5 arrow Quiver is = 80


we will use these substitutions

x= helmet

y = 4 arrow Quiver

y'= 5 arrow Quiver

z = pair of Axe


THUS the 3 equations are as follows


x + y - x = 64 >>> y = 64                                       (1)


Note 4 arrow Quiver y = 64 .... basically 4y = 64 ...... y = 16 >>>>>>> thus y'= 5y >>>> y' = 5(16) = 80


y' + x X x = 96 >>> y'+ x^2 = 96 >>> x^2 = 96 -80 >>>> x= sqrt(16) = 4                                    (2)


y'+2z X x = 112 ..... 80 + 2z x 4 =112 ...... 8z = 112 -80 >>>>>  8z = 32 >>> z = 4            (3)


thus   z = 4


Result

x + z + y' = ?

4 + 4 + 80 = 88



FINAL ANSWER IS 88

sadly so many others got the same answer its unlikely i will win
