__ANSWER__

**405 is the answer**

__Explanation__

**Equation 1**: 9 + 9 + 3 = 21 (In this eqn, First & Secong Clock time is 9 o’clock & time in third clock is 3 o’clock)

**Equation 2**: 10 + 10 + 10 = 30 (In this eqn, Calculator = 10 ; Also note that the sum of the values entyered in the calculator is also 10

**Equation 3**: 15 + 15 – 15 = 15 (In this eqn, Bulb = 15 ; Also note that we get 15 by multipliying the number of rings at the bottom of the bulb and number of lines shown above the bulb (3 x 5).

**Equation 4: 9 + 9 x (12 + 16 + 16)**

**=> 9 + 9 x 44**

**=> 9 + 396**

**=> 405**(In this eqn, The time in clock = 9 ; The sum of the values entered in the calculator is 9 ; To get the values of each bulb, multiply the rings and the lines above the bulb)
