Hi,
I should point out I’m a complete beginner to coding but this question that came up in a Fullstack Academy pre-test to see if one is qualified to carry on to a bootcamp prep course is not even really coding so I really just raced through it because it seemed so simple but…I got it wrong?!

Here it is, and as soon as I have a few answers I’ll post their solution and we can discuss it. Either we’ll agree that Fullstack got it wrong (unlikely I guess) or I hope someone will explain it to me.
Questions:

what is the answer to the last question

what is the value of a single ‘mouse’, ‘monitor’, ‘cloud’

Just what @nhcarrigan said . There are plenty of puzzles similar to this. Once I got (someone send it to me) one that had so many hidden details that I had to zoom in the image to get the right answer !

I find it weird that they asked this though. It may seem like a good exercise to know how much attention to detail you have .

Hi,I have been able to solve it:it goes this way:
Computer Mouse=5
2 computer mouse=6
One is 3
Cloud=4 Solution
5+5+5=15
5+6+6
6-4=2
Since two is 6
One is 6/2=3
4+5 x 3=27
Answer=27
This is what might make one make a mistake,you may have forgotten to divide by 2.
Hope this helps you.
