To solve this kind of Puzzle, you need to apply common sense, use the simultaneous equation method and apply BODMAS at the end. That's the trick in it.

So, first equation: A+A+A=3

Implies 3A = 3

Implies A=3÷3

Therefore A = 1

Second equation:B+B+A=5

B+B+1= 5 ( value of A =1 from equation 1).

2B = 5-1

B = 2.

Third equation:C+C+B=8

2C +2 = 8

2C = 8-2

C = 3.

Therefore the value of A= 1

B = 2

C = 3.

I will substitute the values above in the final equation.

Final equation: A+B×C=?

Implies 1+2×3 =?

Implies 1+ 6 =?(Apply BODMAS)

Implies 7 =?.

Therefore the correct answer to A+A+A=3

B+B+A=5

C+C+B=8

A+B×C=?, Is 7.

Some people will take 1+2= 3, then 3×3= 9 which is wrong.
