I'm not sure what I'm missing for my interpretation of PEMDAS to work:

Trailer = 30
Tire = 5
Window = 6

My interpretation of the trailer image the final drawing is a set of parentheses, so I get 5 + (30-6) X 6, or 5 + 24 X 6 or 5 + 144 = 149. Of course it has been 53 years since I've been in school, and math was never my strong area.

Three tires = 25, one tire = 8⅓.


Some pun that I donít see is the likely answer.

Ah! I didn't notice the shadows behind the first two tires. I change my answer to 185, which has already been declared wrong. Story of my life.

89. Bottom camper is missing two tires and door window. Using the camper as a subset i get (30 -6 -5 -5) = 14
5 + 14 x 6 = 89

If that is true then six campers = 90 and the question line is for one camper.

If one camper and one window and four tires = 30
and one tires = 5
and one window = 6

Then the camper equal something like -7 and we KNOW our campers are worth more than that!

So I call #fakenews on the whole equation.

OK here we go!…

Start on the third line.. Three windows is 18 so each window is 6
Line two.. five tires = 25.. so each tire is 5.
First line. There are three trailers, 12 tires and three windows.
The 12 tires on the first line total 60.
The three windows on the first line equal 18.
The total for windows and tires on the first line is 78.
Line one total is 90… minus 78 for the tires and windows leaves 12 for the three trailers.
Or 4 for each trailer.

Summary:
Trailer = 4
Tire = 5
Window = 6

Now for the final line.. but note that there is no window and only two tires on the trailer! So… on the last line the trailer is one Trailer (4) + two tires (10) = 14

Now on the last line we have one tire (5) + trailer with two tires and no window (14) times one window (6).

... 5 + 14 x 6

Assuming algebraic operator precedence, first we do 14 times 6 = 84, then 84 + 5 = 89

I have edited this a bunch so maybe I will be quoted with a different answer but its late so.. final answer: 89
