**ANSWER**

8 is the answer

__Explanation__

**Equation 1**: 5 + 10 + 10 = 25 (So the value of a PLANT with 5 leaves is 5; Also note that there are two plants one beneath the other in second and third part of the equation 1.

**Equation 2**: 8 + 8 + 8 = 24 (If you look closely, you can see the number 3 on top of each Tortoises. So the value of a TORTOISE = 5)

**Equation 3**: 2 x 2 x 2 = 8 (So the value of a CATERPILLAR = 2)

**Equation 4:**3 + 3 + (-3) = 3 (Since on bug is moving backwards its value is negative. So the value of one BUG = 3)

**Equation 5**: (5 + 3) + (4 + 2 + 2) x (3 + 3)

(Here in the first part of equation there is a bug on the face of the Tortoise and the Tortoise has no number 3 on its body)

(In the second part of this equation, there are only 4 leaves for the plant and you can see two Caterpillars in the plant pot)

(In the second part of this equation, there are only 4 leaves for the plant and you can see two Caterpillars in the plant pot)

(In the third part of this equation, there are two bugs, one beneath the other)

=> 8 + 8 x 6

=> 8 + 48

=> 56 is the value of RED BUG

So the solution is the Square Root of (RED BUG + 8) (You can see the number 8 on the head of RED BUG at the last equation)

=> Square Root of (56 + 8)

=> Square Root of (64)

__=> 8 is the answer__
