I see two different solutions. Worked the way Richard has written it,
I get

O - 19 = 211
O = 230

H x 2 = 211
H = 105 r 1

T + 27 = 211
T = 184

S / 5 = 211
S = 1055

C * 11 = 211
C = 19 r 2

D - 38 = 211
D = 249

Worked the way I suspect the teacher intended, I get:

O - 19 = Star = 211
O = 230

H x 2 = O
H = 115

T + 27 = H
T = 88

S / 5 = T
S = 440

C x 11 = S
C = 40

D - 38 = C
D = 78

Richard,

Considering this is a problem for a third 3rd grade class, I get :
diamond=38, circle=40, square=440, triangle=88, hexagon=115,
oval=230.

I'd be interested to hear what solution you came up with, and the
solution the teacher
gave (my wife teaches elementary school). I'm not claiming to be a
"math professional",
but I hope this helps you out.

Michael
