This is hard! Well here's your answer: 40
Why? Well my dear friends, it's called a little tom foolery, mixed with the order of operations. In the last problem, there are only 4 slices of Pork Roll (rather than 5) and the second Boardwalk Ferris Wheel only has 8 inside-spokes (instead of 10). Now, using the order of operations (remember: Please Excuse My/Dear Aunt/Sally--Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication/ Division, Addition/Subtraction) It turns into (10 - 2 + 4 x 8) | multiply 4 x 8 first, then work left to right, 10 - 2 + 32 = 40.
