There are many other solutions possible, though not as simple nor related to the name of the teaser. For example:
if a, b, c. d, and e are the 5 rolls of the die:
the answer is:
(38/12)a + b + c + (5/12)d - (41/12)e

Cute! Near impossible without the hint though!

This is an old and famous puzzle... here are some more interesting info:

Instead of "how many petals around the rose", a commonly used hint is: "how many polar bears around the water hole? like petals around a rose, count each bear's nose".

Also, once you have solved the puzzle you are automatically made a memer of the polar bear club, and in doing so you swear and oath never to reveal the answer to anyone who hasn't figured it out themselves.

Despite its apparent logical construction, this puzzle appeals to the creative parts of the brain. Small children and the like usually solve it much quicker than adults, for instance.

I first saw this one as a flash version, got the answer right in a couple of seconds, although I think it's easier when you got the image the dices. Not sure about that though

Nice puzzle to tease your friends with
