    This is tricky, and my guess is you won't get it. I certainly didn't. Try it, and call yourself a genius if you do. If you don't figure out, try http://www.digitalmarket.asia/2016/02/sowhoknew-why-this-kids-puzzle-is-driving-the-internet-bananas/Robert Bacal

    #33 Well, I gained something here. @@Mamen Delgado. The art of honesty, of openness.The art of not living in the past. The art of letting go. The art of moving on. The art of believe. The art to have faith. No matter what. Easy words. But that was not the topic of mr. Bacal. The answer is fourteen with adorable smuacksss,

    #30 Hahahaha!!!! You are so adorable @Peter van Doorn!! "Smuacksss" means the sound of a kiss in English. Or at least that's what I pretended... ;) Sorry about my answer in Spanish, if you follow my buzzes you can see I write always in English and Spanish, but I answer in the same language I have been asked (otherwise it would be exhausted). So nice your story with Pilar, to say she was " the love of your life" is a lot to say... ;) Thanks for sharing!! Kiss kiss from Spain (to make it clear!)!! ;)

    #29 @Mamen Delgado I had to google the word Smuackssss. Not sure if it even was a word. It turned out to be a word in the spanish world. I am not able to learn your language in a day. I assume you are spanish. I used to know some people in Spain, a long time ago........ I do not know how you or me did it. I am thinking, wondering for many hours. A long time ago, in Spain I met the love of my life. Pilar. She was so much open in contradiction to what I was back then. We met on my first day in Benidorm. And we met again on her last day there.I was young an very stupid, she was young and so much wiser. I will not tell how I managed to mess up the rest of our story. Somehow, that strange expression of you triggered me.

    #20 @ Mamen Delgado. I will have to learn spanish, don't I? Thanks.. :) I will try. Het zal niet gemakkelijk zijn, net zomin als mjn taal makkelijk voor jou zal zijn. Iedere appel verbeeld tien. Iedere afzonderlijke banaan verbeeld 1.. Vier bananen minus twee cocusnoten= twee. Wat een enkele cocusnoot 1 laat zijn. Het antwoord laat op zich wachten..... I expect Google translate make a total mess of what I just said. And yet I seem to understand your spanish

    #15 I see 1 coconut and three bananas.

    #17 @Hugo Chinchilla, cada coco tiene un valor de 1 y las bananas tienen valor de 1 cada una. En el último supuesto solo hay 1 coco, 1 manzana y ¡3 bananas! Fíjate en el dibujo. Yo sumo 10 por el valor de la manzana, 1 por el valor de 1 coco y 3 por el valor de 3 bananas = 14.

    Hi Hugo - I originally used your same method but the trick in this problem is that there are only 3 bananas in the last problem instead of 4 and only one coconut instead of two like the previous problem. So the values have to change. #16

    Line 1: apple is ten. Line 2:four bananas are four. Line 3:two coconuts would be one each.Line 4: One coconut plus one apple plus 75% of the bananas would count to 1+ 10+ 3=14

    #2 Mamen ¿Por qué es 14 y no 16? Moriré porque mi lógica matemática no funcionó jajaja.

    #9 Please tell me why, because I got 16 jaja.

    I got 16 using a math method, but I see that many people got 14, why? My logic tells me that apples are X, so x+x+x= 30; x=10. Let's say that bananas are x1 and coconuts are x2. x(10)+x1(4)+x1(4)= 18. x1(4)-x2(2)=2. x2(2)+x(10)+x1(4)=16.
