19

Horse = 10

2 horse shoes = 4 and so therefore one show = 2

2 boots = -2 and so one boot = -1

Horse X 1 shoe = 10 X 2 = 20

+ -1 = 19

Assuming normal arithmetic procedure ie horse and horseshoe resolved first: Answer = 80

Otherwise possibly 48

Horse = 10

Horseshoe = 2

Boot = 1

Likewise on reflection it's 22 as I've just realised there is only one horseshoe in the last item.

Just noticed only one horseshoe, therefore value of 2 not 4 so...

The bottom line is 2+10x2. Depending on ow you interpret the mathematical rules its either

(2+10) x 2 = 12 x 2 = 24 or

2+ (10x2) = 2+20 = 22.

horse = 10

horseshoe = 4

boot = 2 (because horseshoe - boot = 2)

So boot + horse x horseshoe = **42**

just noticed again...only one boot.

therefore 1+10x2.

so either 21 or 22, again depending on interpretation of mathematical rules.
