    1

    apples are 10
    bananas are 4

    so 1+10+4 =14

    I'm guessing:
    1
    Apples-10
    Bananas-4
    Coconut-1
    1+10+4=15

    Apples are worth 10
    Bananas are worth 1 (the first bunches that are worth 4 have 4 bananas in the bunch, the last line only has 3 bananas in the bunch)
    Coconuts are worth 2 or 1 for each 1/2 coconut (the line shows that 2 coconut halfs are worth 2, the last line only has 1 coconut half so it's worth 1)


    1 ( 1/2 coconut)+ 10 ( 1 Apple)+ 3 (3 bananas in that bundle)=14

    I don't think it's fair to ask people to do math on Fridays.

    Like they said:

    Apple = 10
    Banana = 4
    1/2 of a coconut = 1

    Total: 15

    And I concur: it's absolutely not fair to post a math question on a Friday, or any day.

    Dave, no one likes a Teacher's Pet! You won't have any friends, and you won't getany Valentine's Day cards either and no one will pick you for Red Rover!

    Answer: 16
    When I first looked at it that was my answer too. I didn't even notice that there was only one half coconut and 3 bananas instead of 4 on the last line. I fail at being even vaguely observant. Ah well.

    I saw another similar photo math problem on Facebook and took a screenshot. I hope you don't mind me posting it here. This one has flowers instead of fruit... If anyone finds anymore of these post them here (if it's ok with @danger_dan the op ) or maybe start a new thread somewhere (if it's not).

    Flower one:
    Red: 20
    Blue: 5
    Yellow: 2
    So one of each: 27 (I hope!)
