    Look, behind you!
    Am I overlooking something? Because my process was:

    First one:

    X + X + X = 30

    Three times X adds to 30, 30 divided by 3 is 10, therefore X = 10.

    Second one:

    X + Y + Y = 20

    We know X = 10, so we only have another 10 to get to 20. Since the next two numbers are of the same amount, we can divide 10 by 2, which is 5, therefore Y = 5.

    Third one:

    Y + Z + Z = 9

    We know Y = 5, 4 left till 9, two numbers, 4 divided by 2 is 2, therefore Z = 2.

    Final problem:

    Y + Z x X

    is actually

    5 + 2 x 10,

    multiplications before additions, so it's

    5 + 20 = 25.

    Actually - the third one has four fries at 1 each and the last has only 1.

    Still doesn't add up to 15 - it's 16...

    First off, yes, you found what I missed. So the third one was actually:

    Y + Z x 2 + Z x 2

    So, Z = 1

    Therefore the final problem was

    Y + Z x X = 5 + 1 x 10

    But you misread the x for another + , and since multiplications come before additions, 1 x 10 comes first, equalling 10. So it's 5 + 10, meaning that @think was right, the answer is 15.

    If anyone here collects 6" Black Series Star Wars figures the packaging is finally changing design after five years of the red and black look. The new packaging starts with the wave after the next(and final one with the current design) which is scheduled to hit retail very soon.

    yeah that little riddle was difficult :) but yeah it is 15. :) cause it got posted on fb = my first guess was 25.. then I saw the double fries missed that first.. you know..-- in my head I missed the rules of order with + and x and knew that was the sneaky trick .. so I had to redo it in my head..--
