How to Solve Halloween Math Puzzles

These puzzles take a mix of logic and arithmetic to solve. It’s very much a case of looking at the symbols and given numbers to work out the value of each symbol.

You will find that with a bit of logical thinking, and looking for helpful clues such as the repetition of symbols, the answers will become clear.

In the example below, we know that two bottles of potion = 24, so we know that the value of these is 12 each. We can therefore work out the value of the cauldron. As we know that two bottles are 12 and two bottles and one cauldron equal 35, we know the value of the cauldron must be 11.

We can therefore work out the following line too, as we know that the cauldron is 11, that means that the value of two lollipops must be 20, meaning these have a value of 10 each.
