Fort Groningen


Been there.

Thoroughly dull place. Nothing to do at all and the food was shit - it's like the worst of dutch and german cuisine mixed together.

Ended up having to drive for an hour every night (I forget where to) to pick up KFC, Pizza or burgers for everybody I was working with.
After doing it for a couple of days, even the locals were asking me to pick stuff up for them.

Nice fort though, I suppose.

You blew it by not noticing the multiplication sign in the last equation. 5+2X10. :razz:

Now, of course, there'll be arguments about whether the answer is supposed to be 70 or 25.
Unless I'm mistaken, it should be 25.

you blew it too Si!
There's only one box of fries so it isn't 5+2 it's 5+1x10=60

As Holly says, the fries are worth 2, not 1.

As for the total, mathematical priority-of-operations dictates that you do multiplication and division before addition and subtraction so (from what I was taught, at least) it's 2x10 and then 20+5 for a total of 25.

I knew this would happen. :razz:

Nope look at the pictures in the one where the answer is 9 you have a burger +2 boxes of fries+two boxes of fries which means each box of fries is worth 1
in the final line it has a burger (5) + one box of fries (1) x shake (10) = 60 :thumbsup:

Bump


Lets forget the spoiler, I think we can leave it open now


Look, in the 3rd row the total is 9....A burger is worth 5, so two boxes of fries must be worth 4 to equal 9, which means a box of fries is worth 2, right? So, 1 burger (5) + 1 box of fries (2) x by a drink (10) = 70...If I'm wrong,than what am I not getting?

Look at the picture of the third row:
a burger + 2 boxes of fries together +another 2 boxes of fries together = 9

which is 5 +2 +2 = 9

4th row
a burger + ONE BOX of fries x shake =?
5 +1x10=60

it's there in the pictures!!! count the boxes of fries!!!

Ah, I do see what you're saying. :thumbsup:

Although, to be pedantic, that actually breaks the puzzle by trying to be too "sneaky" because there's nothing to verify that a "single fries" is worth half of what the "double fries" is worth.

That'd be kinda like assuming that "1" is worth half of what "11" is worth.

It's still not a total of 60 though.
It's 5+(1x10)=15.

We're all morons to some extent. :shame:

Well if we're going to be pedantic: there are no brackets in the picture though, you added them to try and justify your wrong answer. :wink:
