According to a study published in International Psychogeriatrics, fun brain games (kind of like this one) will help you sharpen certain thinking skills. These include processing speed, planning skills, reaction time, decision making, and short-term memory. Especially when it comes to the effects of aging. So, if you want your mind to remain sharp – do more puzzles and keep your brain active![1]

Okay, The Answer Is

Remember, we said you need to first determain what each bird represents as a number:

Therefore:

If three racoons equal 21, divide 21 by 3 to find out what 1 racoon represents.

1 racoon = 7 because 7 x 3 = 21

So, if 1 racoon = 7, and 1 duck + 1 hippo + 1 hippo = 17 then each hippo must represent 5!

racoon (7) + hippo (5) + hippo (5) = 17

We now know that a hippo represents the number 5. So, in the third sum, the frog must represent the number 8!

frog (8) + hippo (5) + hippo (5) = 18

Alright, Out of the Box Thinkers!

Now that we know what each bird represents, the answer to the last sum is easy!

Drumroll please!

The results: Hapara's holiday Workspace contest! - Hapara

racoon [7] + (hippo [5] + hippo[5]) + frog [8] = 25

If you got it right, you’re definitely one of the internets out of the box thinkers! If not, why not try some of our other brain games and see how many you can figure out? Let us know in the comments!
