PEDMAS of course!

The Order of Operations: PEMDAS

On line 4 you must multiply first, so you get "21"

1 + (10x2) = 21

or if there are actually 2 bananas

1 + (10x4) = 41

OK,
Here goes logic in action.
3 apples = 30 Value is 10 each
A whole bunch of bananas =4
Coconuts halfs =1

So the final problem:
Now here's the kicker: Half a bunch of bananas (yes that is half a bunch) =2
Half a coconut (1) plus one apple (10)=11 x (half bunch of bananas) 2 =22
There's your answer.
That was easy..............

If the "order of things" says multiplication takes place before addition then the answer is 31. BTW, there are 3 bananas in the bottom line.

EDIT: fella10 posted as I was writing up my answer. We both got it but fella10 was technically first.

I used the zoom function in my browser and that's how these tired eyes saw 3.

Earlier I said 48. Ok, I admit it. I am throughly confused by the whole thing. I think the answer is whatever you want to see. That puzzle got more different answers that TV load capacities.

On a different note I do know the difference between: there, their & they're.

That rule about " multiply first" must have come after 1965 LOL
