To solve this puzzle, you need to use the basic Math BODMAS rule. This puzzle not only tests your maths skills but it also tests your ability to creatively correlate maths with basic day to day objects. Below is the solution to the above puzzle.

  • Four grapes are equal to 1000. So, 1000/4 is equal to 250. Therefore, one grape is equal to 250.
  • We now know the value of one grape. According to the second equation, Watermelon + grape + grape = 500. Therefore Watermelon + 250 +250 = 500. Using BODMAS rules, we can calculate that the value of one watermelon is equal to 0.

  • According to the third equation, banana + banana + watermelon + grape = 500. Therefore, banana + 0 + 250 = 500. The value of two banana is equal to 250. Therefore, the value of one banana is 125.
  • The final equation; grape + banana - grape x watermelon = 250 + 125 -250 x 0
  • Using BODMAS rules, you can solve the final equation. The final answer to this puzzle is 125
