The correct answer is 89.



Trailer (30) - 2 tires (10) - 1 window (6) = 14

14 * 1 window (6) = 84
84 + 1 tire (5) = 89

I prefer 230 was off by 5. Interesting how the question is presented...


(30 + 25/3)*6 where 25/3 is 8.33333...

I have edited this a bunch so maybe I will be quoted with a different answer but its late so.. final answer: 89
THANK YOU for mentioning order of operations. So many people just go left to right and forget or don't know basic algebra.

This is so funny.. instead of math quiz it has become a reading quiz (with many failing grades )

Here is the first post in which the guy who posted the puzzle first announced the correct answer:

Either direction with no parenthesis let's take another look
Wheel is 25/3
Trailer is 90/3
Third item is 18/3


If we do the straight math...
25/3 + (90 * 18)/3 which works out to 8.3333... + 180 or 188.3333...
It appears there are a lot of ways to read the problem and more than one result

Except when your math is wrong. There are more than three wheels. Check the image, look at the shadows under the wheels. Those aren't mistakes, those are gotchas for these types of tests.
