What is the solution to the above problem? How did you solve the problem?

Hmm..I'll try..but seeing that 95% get it wrong, who knows if this is correct...

r= roses

s= sunflowers

p= purple flowers

 

So:

r+r+r=60: 3r=60 (I won't say that r=20...yet, as this is meant to be hard...)

r+2p=30

p-2s=3

s+r*p=?

 

ok, so using the information that we have, we can say that it is best to turn s+r*p into all p's. So:

r=30-2p

s=(3-p)/2

So, the last question wants:

(3-p)/2+30p-2p^2, which is:

(3-p+60)/2-2p^2

Based on what we know, p should be 10. So, plugging that in, we get:

53/2-200.

I really don't want to simply that, but you get the idea, it's different from what 'normal' people would have got...unless...I made a mistake along the way, which is probably what happened...

Tulip =20

Pansy=5

sunflower*sunflower= 2 (I guess)     I am not sure what (sunflower sunflower) means 

sunflower= sqrt2

 

sunflower+tulip*Pansy = sqrt2+100

 

Or maybe you just get a crazy tapestry.
