Petals Around the Rose

[1][2][4][5][5]
How many petals are there around the rose?

Instructions. Guess/deduce/whatever the number of petals you think there are around the rose. Enter the number in the box above, and then click Check. If you aren't lucky the first time, feel free to try again. To solve the problem, you don't even need to be good at math, but you need a creative and open mind. Now go figure out the idea yourself, and when you get it, don't spoil it, but let everyone catch the idea for themselves!
