order of ops isn’t the issue, I’m revising my answer to 15

theres only one shoe so,1/2 of 10 and only one whistle so,half of 4

so 5+(5*2)

i missed the trick the they took a shoe and whistle away
Good situational awareness.

Lemme try again:

And I missed that the two shoes turned into ONE shoe.

Shoe = 5
Dude = 5
Whistle = 2 <-- FOUR of them total EIGHT

So the final line is One shoe (5) PLUS One dude (5) TIMES a measly ONE whistle (2) = 20

There are no brackets used, so the numbers are simply accounted from left to right.

What a fun, sneaky puzzle!!

The math rules have you doing the multiplication first. So answer is 15.

Nope. Without any brackets, it is whatever comes up, do it. You can stop at any time and keep your subtotal. File it. Then later you find you have to double the previous total.

Brackets eliminate the problem. <-- That is the raison d'être for the existence of brackets in math.

WRONG…multiplication and division come before addition/subtraction…that’s the rules of order. Brackets exist if you want to do something DIFFERENT than that.

  1. brackets ( ), [ ]
  2. powers, indices
  3. multiply, divide
  4. add, subtract.
Exactly…so without brackets the multiplication comes first. Therefore 15 is the answer.
