Riddle me this Batman...

There are NO parentheses around the shock times the piston.  Therefore the rule of multiplication before addition does not apply and you take the math problem in the order that the signs come in.

The correct answer is Tire + (1) Shock x Piston or 5 + 1 x 10 = 60.

Another wrinkle thrown into the problems which further confuses the situation glad there are great minds to figure this out

You are forgetting the order of operations PEMDAS. Parentheses, exponents, multiplication and division then addition and subtraction. So while there is no parentheses around the multiplication you still have to do that multiplication before you add.

I've run into these types of riddles before and if I follow the Rules of Pedmas, my answer is rated wrong. Mayne the guys creating the riddles don't know the rule of Pedmas and they need a lesson.

If I follow the rule of Pedmas, the answer is 15.

This is a very eloquent statement of a law of math.  It's not an opinion, is there any actual debate?

Yes, so 50+50-(25x0)+2+2=?

I would put it 50 + 50 - 25 equals 75 x 0 + 2 + 2 probably incorrect but I tried

The way it’s written is “weird” but you’re correct that it’s 104. 

50+50-25*0+2+2=?

50 + 50 - (25*0) + 2 + 2 = ? Add() and perform that operation first 

50 + 50 - 0 + 2 + 2 = ? Remove the ()

Now order of operations even though it’s only + -

100 - 0 + 4 = 104

That breakdown wasn’t for you. Just showing how you/I got 104.

All 3 are different. I guess you could argue #1 is different since it’s the only “perfect” cat.

Look closely at #2.  It doesn’t have rear feet.

Other than that, all 3 are the same. So #2 is the one that is different.

Look closely; #3 doesn’t have eyebrows.# 2 doesn’t have rear toes. 1 is the only fully complete cat. So #1 is the different one since #2 and #3 are missing something. While they’re missing different things, they’re missing something. “Missing something” makes them the same leaving #1 to be different.
