Have you figured it out yet?
If you’ve solved the problem, congratulations! But if you’re still trying to do the math in your head, take your time as this challenge can be really confusing.
The question involves only one wine glass and also multiplication, so it is important to get the correct values of each figure first.
You may view the solution at the bottom but before you do, make sure that you have already done your best! Feel free to ask your friends and family to boost the fun.

The value of one candy cane is 5, a wine glass is 1, and a snowflake is 15. So, 5 + 1 x 10 = 15.
Follow the MDAS (Multiplication, Division, Addition & Subtraction) rule. Multiply 1 by 10 first before adding 5 to get 15.
Wow, that was confusing! The equations provided showed two wine glasses and only involved addition. But were you able to get the correct answer?
