Flower Maths Puzzle Leaves Internet Users Baffled – Can You Solve It?



A new internet puzzle is baffling users with its mix of flowers and figures. The maths equation that uses delicate floral symbols instead of algebra has got everyone thinking. In the style of a reasoning problem often seen online, the puzzle requires users to work out the values of individual blooms to solve it. The viral puzzle shows how three red flowers equal 60, and one of the red flowers added to two blue are equal to 30. To help you work out the values of each, you’re then shown that one of the blue flowers minus a yellow one is equal to three. The final equation is the one which you have to solve – what is the value of a yellow flower, plus a red one times a blue one. Can you figure it out?

People have come up with a variety of answers to this problem that supposedly originated as a maths puzzle for Chinese children. It appeared on Thursday on the English language Facebook page of the People’s Daily, a Chinese newspaper. The caption read: “Loads of adults have been stumped by this hashtag math problem from a Chinese kindergarten test. What’s your answer ?”

Lots of people think they have come up with the answer – but almost as many are coming up with different results. The reason it can be described as unsolvable is that there’s too little consistency in the flower symbols. For instance the final line only has one yellow flower compared to two in the line above, and the final blue flower has fewer petals than the blue flowers above.

Yet there is a way to come up with an answer of 81 that does take into account the variety of images in the puzzle:
The first three lines of the equation tells us:
Red flower = 20,
Blue Flower (with 5 petals) = 5,
2 Yellow flowers = 2,
Therefore:
1 Yellow flower + Red Flower x Blue Flower (with 4 petals),
1 + 20 x 4 = 81

  • It's real answer is 105
    Because the rate of blue flower is 5
    5-2=3
    1+20 ×5=105

  • how people got 81
    3r=60
    r=20

    20+2b=30
    2b=30-20
    2b=10
    b=5

    5-2y=3
    5-3=2y
    2y=2
    y=1

    1+20*4

  • x+x+x=60 3x=60 x=20,
    x+y+y=30 20+2y=30 y=5,
    y-2z=3 5-2z=3 z=1,
     z+x*q=?
    1+20q=S This is called the equation of a straight line, S=1 q= -0,05
    Value is straight line.
    Every flower is unique.
