Wording Of Math Problem Leaves People Confused

Somewhere in the last years, they changed math causing what should be children's problems to stump even adults. 

Kenneth L Womack shared a picture of his kid's math homework with a problem marked wrong and he took to Facebook simply to ask someone to help explain to him why his kid got the problem wrong. 

The problem is, nobody can seem to agree on what the right answer is. 

At first look, the kid's answer seems correct using the ALL of the last sentence as your gauge. Other's are trying to say that it uses the second kid's numbers and a round about way to get to the math. 

What do you think?
