I've tried calculators, my dad, my old maths teacher and even an abacus... But no joy with an answer

Anybody help me out?

42 is the universal answer.

Oh wait, no, it's the answer to the universal question.
Is 16+24 the universal question? We might be on to something here.

It is possible however to make the answer 42 with a little messing around.

Add the 2 and the 4 from 24 and multiply by the 1 + 6 from 16 then hey presto 42. Maybe it was us being daft??

Definitely works
17 + 23= ?

1+7=8
2+3=5

So it must be 8x5=40
