    The last line equates to 5 + 1 x 10, not 5 + 2 x 10; the symbol in the middle is half of the symbol in the previous line. Following the order of calculations – brackets, multiplications and divisions are done before additions and subtractions – the answer is 5 + 10.

    Tis as VK has explained

    10 + 10 + 10 = 30

    10 + 5 + 5 = 20

    5 + 2 + 2 = 9

    5 + 1 x 10  (so 1 x 10 = 10 + 5)  =  the answer 15

    Here’s another one.

    1 + 4 = 5
    2 + 5 = 12
    3 + 6 = 21
    8 + 11 = ?
