Line 1
1 apple + 1 apple + 1 apple = 30
so
3 apples = 30
so
30/3 apples = 10
so 1 apple = 10

Line 2
1 apple + 1 banana + 1 banana = 18
so
1 apple + 2 bananas = 18
So
10 + 2 bananas = 18
So
2 bananas = 18 – 10 = 8
So
8/2 bananas = 4
So 1 banana = 4

Line 3
1 banana – 2 coconut halves = 2
So
4 – 2 coconut halves = 2
So
4 = 2 + 2 coconut halves
So
4 - 2 = 2 coconut halves
So
2 = 2 coconut halves
So
2/2 coconut halves = 1
So 1 coconut half = 1


Line 4
1 coconut half + 1 apple x 1 banana = ?
Rules of math, do addition/subtraction first so
(1 coconut half + 1 apple) x 1 banana =?
So
(1 + 10) x 4 = ??
So
(11) x 4 = 44 ANSWER

in line 4, there are only 3 bananas, not 4 like on the upper lines,....
maths "order of operation" is explained at this link,

Order of Operations

my 1st. answer was 15(didn't see the x or the 3 bananas)
2nd, was 44(still didn't see the 3 bananas)
3rd. was 33(had forgotten the "order of operation" rule,.... hey, it's been almost 50 yrs. give an old man a break)

correct answer is 31

I blew it up and if the bananas in the 4th line are different than in the upper lines, it's sure as heck hard to tell.

If so, it would appear that the "trick" to the puzzle is to give you a crappy picture.

That's a pretty low way to go.

PS: I agree with 33 (not 31) using the crappy picture.

33 makes more sense to me also, but a rule is a rule,
and we all know, "if its on the internet, its got to be true".......
