## Solution to the CATERPILLAR TIMES LEAF AND HALF OF APPLE ON A CATERPILLAR + APPLE=?

In the first equation, three leaves sum up to 30. Therefore, each leaf is equal to 10.

So, 10+ 10+ 10 = 30. This is for ordinary understanding.

To solve mathematically,

3 leaves = 30

Implies a leaf = 30/3.

Implies a leaf is 10. I solve mathematically so that you can apply this method to solve more complex puzzles and quizzes.

Second equation: CATERPILLAR AND APPLE ON A CATERPILLAR+ CATERPILAR AND APPLE ON A CATERPILLAR + CATERPILAR AND APPLE ON A CATERPILLAR= 21

In the second equation, 3 CATERPILLAR AND APPLE ON A CATERPILLAR are equal to 21. Therefore, CATERPILAR AND APPLE IS EQUAL TO 7.

Note

If a caterpillar and an apple on a caterpillar = 7, therefore an apple on a caterpillar= 3.5 and a caterpillar = 3.5

Also, the apple on a caterpillar should be considered different from the apple in the third equation as per the puzzle.

Remember I mentioned somewhere above that the trick in this math puzzle is in the this second and last equation.

Third equation: APPLE + APPLE + APPLE = 9

Implies 3 apples = 9

Implies An apple = 3.

Therefore, the values of leaf, Apple on a caterpillar, caterpillar and Apple per the LEAF, CATERPILLAR AND APPLE math puzzle are;

LEAF = 10

CATERPILLAR = 3.5

APPLE ON A CATERPILLAR = 3.5

APPLE = 3.

FINAL EQUATION

## CATERPILLAR TIMES LEAF AND HALF APPLE ON A CATERPILLAR + APPLE=?

Therefore, using BODMAS, I will substitute the values above in the final equation as thus; but before I do so I will establish the value of half a on a caterpillar as per the puzzle.

If Apple on a caterpillar = 3.5, implies, half apple on a caterpillar = 1.75.

Therefore,

3.5 times (10 + 1.75) + 3 =?

Implies 3.5 times 11.75 + 3 =?

Implies 16.125 + 3 =?

19.125=?

Hence, I got the CATERPILLAR TIMES LEAF AND HALF APPLE ON A CATERPILLAR + APPLE=? Answer.
