Are you a math whiz, or did you rejoice when you graduated school because you would never see a textbook again? Some people have a mind for math and others hate it. There has been a math problem being passed around social media that has baffled some and frustrated others. Are you able to solve it? Why not give it a try?

### #1 Here is the math problem.

It seems pretty basic, just a little bit of algebra to figure out the value of the fruits. However, it's not that simple. Before you read on, try to figure it out on your own.

### #2 The answer is 14. Did you get it right?

If you got it wrong, you're not the only one.

### #3 If you look closely, you can see that the last line is a little different.

The value of the apples is 10, the banana is 4 and the coconut must be 2. However, in the last line there is only half a coconut and only three bananas in the bunch. Half of 2 is 1 and 3/4 of 4 is 3.
Were you tricked by this clever math problem?
