    273 - (35 * 16 ) = - 287 .....or 273 -35 * 16 = 3808 ...

    A quick and dirty solution could be 3856, but it depends on assumptions, such as everything with a lolly-stick = 1, even if it’s running into another one or upside-down. Also that the balls of ice cream are the same number whatever size they are. So I don’t think that’s the right answer and I’ll keep looking.

    I got into such a trance looking at the first puzzle Rab that I never got around to the second one

    Alf - I did 276 - (20 + 15) to get 241 then x 16 to get 3856.

    The first number is 276 rather than 273 or am I misreading it?

    Looking again the middle one could be 20 over 15 but that would lead to too many decimal points in the answer.
