If you got 12, 20, or 22 then you’re wrong.

According to the source: The correct answer is 26, but many have suggested 16. Let’s find out which one is correct!

### Solution:

Question:

⇒ Spider + Spider = 32

⇒ Superman + Superman – Spider = 4

⇒ Captain A. + Captain A. = 6

⇒ Wonder Woman + Wonder Woman + Superman = 12

⇒ Spider + Caption A.+ Wonder Woman = ??

#### Let us consider:

• Spiderman = D
• Superman = S
• Captain America = C
• Wonder Woman = W

Now, solution

1) Spiderman = D

•  D + D = 32,
• 2D = 32
• D= 32/2
• D = 16

So, Spiderman = D = 16

2) Superman = S

• S + S – D = 4
• 2S – D = 4  (Put D Value from 1)
• 2S – 16 = 4
• 2S = 16 + 4
• 2S = 20
• S = 20/2
• S = 10

So, Superman = S = 10

3) Captain America = C

• C + C = 6
• 2C = 6
• C = 6/2
• C = 3

So, Captain America = C = 3

4) Wonder Woman = W

Now the debate part of the equation. If you compare the equation 2 and 4. You will figure out the differences and i’m sure everybody noticed that.

So According to the source: In this equation “S” appears inverted/Opposite, so its value is a negative number:

They consider “S” as “-S” in this equation, therefore the equation becomes:

• W + W + (S Opposite) = 12
• 2W + (-S) = 12
• 2W – S = 12
• 2W = 12 + S  (Put “S” value from 2nd equation)
• 2W = 12 + 10
• 2W = 22
• W = 22/2
• W = 11

For now, let’s solve this without “opposite S” and consider it as; S = 10, then our equation become;

• W + W + S = 12
• 2W + S = 12
• 2W = 12 – S
• 2W = 12 – 10
• 2W = 2
• W = 2/2
• W = 1

### 5 ) Final Equation with “S” vs “-S”:

But here is another twist:

In the last equation we see that the spider is incomplete, If we compare the last equation Spider with the first one, we figure out the differences of 8 legs Vs 6 legs spider.

If an 8-legged spider is worth 16, how much is a 6-legged spider worth?

• D ( with 8 legs) = 16
• D(with 1 leg) = 16/8
• D (with 1 leg) = 2
• therefore; D ( with 6 legs) = 6 × 2 = 12

So, for last equation, the value of Spider = D (with 6 legs) = 12

#### >> Last equation: (If Superman consider as “-S”, the value of Wonder Woman become i.e. W = 11)

⇒ Spider (D) + Caption A. (C) + Wonder Woman (W) = ??

⇒ D + C + W = ??

⇒ 12 + 3 + 11 = 26

#### >> Again Last equation: (If Superman consider as “S”, the value of Wonder Woman become i.e. W = 1)

⇒ Spider (D) + Caption A. (C) + Wonder Woman (W) = ??

⇒ D + C + W = ??

⇒ 12 + 3 + 1 = 16

Now the question arises, which one is correct? 26 or 16?

I have no dought that the puzzle is made for good intention. But this is not how it works. If 26 is the correct answer, then the most of the puzzle on the internet with such concepts make no sense.

These all cherries are different? Of course not. How many times we have seen in these types of puzzle, where they use two apples, two stars, two oranges in the last equation. We go with the values, not with the situation or position.

In my perspective, it should not be like this. The value of Superman (S) should be treated as same as everywhere. It’s good to make confusion for the puzzle but I think this is not how a puzzle works. You give a particular icon/symbol/logo a value/cost which should be seen equally everywhere.

So, what you guys think? Do you go with 16 or 26? Please share your opinion.

Puzzles are fun, isn’t it? 🙂 Wait! here’s another twist, what if I told you, I flipped the wonder woman too 😉

What? Am I missing something? Have fun!
