# Solution:

Let us consider the shapes of these puzzle;

• Star* = One Hexagon with Six Triangle (in 1st eq.)
• Hexagon* = One Hexagon with Triangle and Circle in it. (in 2nd eq.)
• Triangle* = A Triangle with Circle in it. (in 3rd eq.)
• Circle* = Two Circles (in 4th eq.)

## 1st Equation;

⇒ Star* + Star* + Star* = 36

⇒ 3 Star* = 36

⇒ Star* = 36/3

Star* = 12

## 2nd Equation;

⇒ Hexagon* + Hexagon* + Star* = 30

⇒ 2 Hexagon* + Star* = 30

⇒ 2 Hexagon* + 12 = 30

⇒ 2 Hexagon* = 30 – 12

⇒ Hexagon* = 18/2 = 9

Hexagon* = 9

## 3rd Equation;

⇒ Triangle* + Triangle* + Hexagon* = 15

⇒ 2 Triangle* + 9 = 15

⇒ 2 Triangle* = 15 – 9

⇒ Triangle* = 6/2 = 3

Triangle* = 3

## 4th Equation;

⇒ Circle* + Circle* + Hexagon = 14

⇒  2 Circle* + Hexagon = 14

We know:

• Triangle* = 3 (from 3rd eq.)
• Hexagon* = 9 (from 2nd eq.)

Lets find the simple Hexagon, 3rd equation;

• Hexagon = Hexagon* – Triangle*
• Hexagon = 9 – 3
• Hexagon = 6

Now put the Hexagon value in eq. 4th

⇒  2 Circle* + Hexagon = 14

⇒  2 Circle* + 6 = 14

⇒  2 Circle* = 14 – 6

⇒  Circle* = 8/2 = 4

⇒  Circle* = 4

⇒  Circle* = 4 Then Single Circle = 2

## 5th or Last Equation;

⇒ Star** + Hexagon** × Circle = ??

Lets focus on the details of this equation;

• Star** = One Circle with 5 Triangle
• Hexagon** = One Hexagon with One Triangle in it
• Circle = Just a simple circle

Now we already know each shape value separately, i.e.

• Hexagon = 6
• Circle = 2
• Triangle* = 3, (Triangle with a circle in it)
• Simple Triangle = Triangle* – Circle = 3 – 2 = 1

Now, rewrite the 5th eq.

⇒ Star** + Hexagon** × Circle = ??

⇒ (One Circle with Five Triangle) + ( One Hexagon with a triangle) × (One Circle) = ??

⇒ (2+1+1+1+1+1) + (6+1) × (2) = ??

⇒ (7) + (7) × (2) = ??

⇒ 7 + 14 = 21 Ans
