It can't be answered. The value of one banana has not been determined. The cookie in the last  equation is different than the other cookies so we don't know it's value either.

 

However, if we assume one banana is half the value of two bananas, and all of the cookies are the same, my guess would be 50.

You forgot BEDMAS if banana's are worth 1 the answer is 14

 

If bananas are still worth 2 the answer is 25

Cookies value is the number of spots (top row 10, bottom row 7)

2 bananas = 2 so 1 banana = 1

3rd row means the clock = 3

 

So row 4 is 3+1+1x7 which = 11

The clock in the last row is set to 2 instead of 3, so the answer would be 10.

Good catch! I missed that (but it was very hard to see).

I am thinking each banana 1, and the clock is now 2, not 3, times 7 chips on the cookie=11

If a "two o'clock" is worth 2 because a "three o'clock" is worth 3, and the value of the cookie is determined by the number of chips then the CORRECT answer is 2+1+1x7 or 10. Take it from a professional engineer. Because there are no parentheses, the cookie only multiplies the single banana, not all the terms.

I agree with Keys Kathy as that is how I came up with the answer as well.  When there are no parenthesis then the formula is usually done in the order of the equation, and although century cruiser used an engineers background  I would disagree, since there are no parenthesis then there is no set order and probably two different answers that would be correct.   Both 10 and 28 could be the correct answer, only Ali Baba knows for sure.

Sorry, wrong...just noticed the multiplication sign

The first equation determines that one cookie equals 10.

The second equation determines that 4 bananas = 4      or 1 banana = 1

The third equation determines that 2 clocks = 8-2 or 6.     1 clock = 3

so

1 clock (3) plus 1 banana(1) plus one times a cookie (10) = 14
