From the top 3 equations, we can surmise that:

Horse = 10

Pair of Horseshoes = 4

Pair of Boots = 2

Assuming a single "shoe" is equal to half the value of a pair:

Horseshoe = 2

Boot = 1

So, substituting for the bottom equation:

1 + 10 x 2 = ??

Order of operations dictates that the multiplication be done first:

1 + 20 = 21

If the order of operations is ignored and the last line is computed left-to-right, you would get 22.

Replace the symbols with X, Y, and Z =). Solve for one variable, plug in to the other equations to solve for the others.

It went viral on FB.

Good that the young 'uns get a dose of math now and then.

Seriously? Did it go viral because it was "so difficult" most adults couldn't solve it, or ?Quote:MrVIt went viral on FB....

You're right about one thing. FB is a nasty virus and I'll never use it.

You'll see these types of questions in the "recommended" on YouTube. It's basically asking if your paying attention. Even I missed the single boot and horseshoe the first time.
