Math puzzle with motorcycles

Puzzles are a great way to keep your brain sharp and test your attentiveness. While express puzzles and optical illusions primarily require quick concentration, math problems can be a real challenge.

A math puzzle about vehicles is gaining popularity online. Try to solve an interesting equation with many unknowns.

What is the correct answer? A math puzzle with motorcycles will make you think hard

If the cost of two motorcycles is 36, the cost of two scooters is 6, and the cost of two bicycles is 8, what is the final solution?

Researchers say that regularly solving puzzles and intellectual tasks will bring significant benefits in the future, reducing the risk of age-related neurological diseases.

Often, puzzles encourage you to think outside the box and look for creative solutions. Scientists have stated that puzzles can improve mental health. And psychologists find a connection between the ability to quickly solve logical and math problems and high IQ. Of course, it is better to take special tests to determine the level of mental abilities.

So, did you manage to solve this equation quickly? After the riddle was posted on the social network, many users wrote answers in the comments. Most decided that the correct answer was 42. Some users also wrote that 60 and 64 could also fit the conditions of the problem.

In fact, the problem is not as simple as it seems. The trick is that you can't immediately see the two bicycles in the last equation. In addition, it is worth remembering the school math course on the sequence of actions: multiplication first, and then addition.

18+8 (two bicycles) x 3

That is, 18+24=42.
