In the meanwhile from gpuzzles

Birbal is a witty trader who trades in  a mystical fruit grown far in north. He travels from one place to another with three sacks which can hold 30 fruits each. None of the sacks can hold more than 30 fruits. On his way, he has to pass through thirty check points and at each check point, he has to give one fruit from each sack to the authorities.

How many mystical fruits remain after he goes through all the thirty check points?

I have good eyesight extrahappy, well for the first few inches anyway, but my arithmetic is rubbish  wackoold

But I think you are right, 25.     My brain (stomach) was still thinking about the sacks of mystical fruit and I subtracted 1 (for the missing petal) from the answer to the previous question. Grin Grin

You are getting too Good


Solution:
25

Explanation:
== Equation1 ==
RedFlower + RedFlower + RedFlower = 60
=> RedFlower = 20

== Equation2==
RedFlower + 5BluePetals + 5BluePetals = 30
=> 20 + 10BluePetals = 30
=> 10BluePetals = 10
=> 1BluePetals = 1

== Equation3 ==
5bluePetals + 2yellowFlower = 3
=> 5 + 2yellowFlower = 3
=> 2yellowFlower = 2
=> 1yellowFlower = 1

== Required ==
YellowFlower + RedFlower + 4BluePetals = ?
=> 1 + 20 + 4 = 25 ... The Answer
