Yeah I got it wrong the first time I looked at it.

There. I deleted the answer so others can play.

Fortunately you said it was tricky or I wouldn't have counted the 'fries'. And then I forgot my grade 7 math rules. 9_9

I still got it wrong since I took the images to be concrete objects and not abstract variables. Thus, it's not two orders of fries (2x[fries]) but fries squared ([fries]x[fries]). Thus, [fries] = square root of 2. Since discrete object squared is nonsense (what is cat squared? a litter? what if they're both queens?) this math problem was mean. I protest!

Trying not to look so posting from the top- 15? Seemed straightforward apart from visual tricks to take advantage of brain filling in things lazily...

~19.142. I'd get more exact than a rough decimal but that'd give away the process to people who are still guessing.

Well those aren't two things on a table. They're two variables put together in an equation without an operator in between. We both know what that has always meant in math.

And problems like this illustrate why I despair over learning ancient and alien languages when we encounter them.

I personally find it hard to look at symbols with numbers and not use mathematical notation. Hence the despair at translations; how the heck can we decide what someone was thinking when they wrote something from a completely different context?

m + m + m = 30
m + h + h = 20
h + ff + ff = 9
h + m * f = 19.42

Ultimately, I think it's just that the fries doubling trick is kind of shitty. Maybe the two fries symbol means fries + fries. Maybe the two fries symbol means fries * fries. Maybe the two fries symbol is just a different symbol than the fries symbol, the way vv and w are not the same even in fonts where they look the same. But the only reason it's there isn't to catch people who screw up their match, it's to catch people who see "fries" and don't scrutinize the image closely enough to realize that these are two different fries pictures, so I figure as long as you return an answer that signifies that you spotted it, you got a correct answer to a bad question.
