  2. PLATINUM

    Apple + pear – orange = 4
    Apple – 2pears + 3oranges = -6
    2apples + 3pears + oranges = 7

    Apple = x
    Pear = y
    Orange = z

    X + y – z = 4
    X – 2y + 3z = -6
    2X + 3y + z = 7

    X + y – z = 4
    3y – 4z = 10
    – y – 3z = 1

    X + y – z = 4
    3y – 4z = 10
    – 13z = 13

    So x = apple = 1
    Y = Pear = 2
    Z = Orange = -1

    The result is

    Apple + pear – orange = 4 is 1 + 2 – -1 = 4
    Apple – 2pears + 3orange = -6 is 1 – 4 + -3 = -6
    2 apples + 3pears + orange = 7 is 2 + 6 + -1 = 7

  4. Bronze
    15+15=30
    10+10=20
    4+4=8
    15+5Γ—4=35 The principle is to multiply before adding. So we have 15 + 20 = 35.

    SILVER
    10+10+10=30
    10+4+4=18
    4-2=2
    2+10+3=15

    Gold
    30+30+30=90
    30+100+100=230
    80+100+30=210
    50-30+80= 100 50-30=20+80=100

    Platinum
    3+3-2=4
    Oh my brain it’s so hard I tried hard to find the answer but I couldn’t I will leave it until tomorrow and try again.

  5. Bronze Challenge
    > Banana = 15
    > Cherry = 5
    > Green Apple = 4

    15 + 15 = 30
    (2×5) + (2×5) = 20
    4 + 4 = 8
    15 + 5 x 4 = 35.

    I have used the Maths rule to multiply first: 5 times 4 = 20, then adding 15 which gives 35.

    Using the Inversing method: 35 – 15 = 20; 20 divided by 5 is equals to 4. This makes my answer correct!

    Silver Challenge
    > Green Apple = 10
    > Bananas = 4
    > Cherries = 2

    10 + 10 + 10 = 30
    10 + 4 + 4 = 18
    4 – 2 = 2
    2 + 10 + 4 = 16

    Using the Inversing method: 16 – 4 = 12; and 12 – 10 = 2. This makes my answer correct.

    Gold Challenge
    > Red Apple = 30
    > Green Apple = 50
    > Yellow Fruit = 80

    30 + 30 + 30 = 90
    30 + (2×50) + (2×50) = 230
    80 + (2×50) + 30 = 210
    50 – 30 + 80 = 100

    Using the Inversing method: 100 – (80 – 30) = 50 or 100 – (50 – 30) = 80. This makes my answer correct.

    Platinum Challenge
    > Red Fruit = 1
    > Green Pear = 2
    > Orange Fruit = -1

    1 + (2) – (-1) = 4
    1 – 2(2) + 3(-1) = -6
    2(1) + 3(2) + (-1) = 7

    I have used the Maths methods to find numbers that can be added and substracted together to give final values of 4, -6 and 7.
    Multiplying two negative number (-) change the sign to addition (+).
    Multiplying a (+) and (-) gives a negative sign (-).
