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.

It's not at all clear that the value of "two boots" is simply double what the value for "one boot" is. They could be entirely different quantities, and for that reason, the question is indefinite.

For a very relevant example:


Payout for single bars equals 10, but the payout for double bars is not 20, etc.
