Ok so this looks very familiar like elementary school homework. But let’s see if you can get the right answer or not.

Let’s think it out loud together.

Each line gives us a clue on how to solve this fruit equation.

** First line**:

3 apples = 30 so each apple = 10

__Second line:__

Couple apple and 2 bunches of bananas together.

We already know the value of an apple = 10.

10 (apple) + bananas + bananas = 16

16 (total) – 10 (apple) = 6

So each banana bundle = 3.

At this point, you’ll need to think of the value of each individual banana. Each banana = 1.

**Third line:**

Now a banana bunch has 3 bananas = 3.

3 (bananas) – watermelon – watermelon = 1 3 – 2 = 1

So each half of the watermelon = 1.

**Last line:**

10 (apple) + 1 (half of a watermelon) + 2 (bananas) =** 13**

The trick here is the final equation includes only 1 bunch of 2 bananas instead of 3 bananas as shown on previous lines.

Easy-peasy!
