Wondering if any high school graduates or college could help me solve this problem that i found on my facebook but nobody know sthe answer. i think its 12, but some other commenters who i dont know think 31, 14, 13, or 120
1 added to 11 other ones = 12 you have to multiply by itself because of the Double part of PEMDAS, then add the one 12 x 12 = 84 + 1 = 85 then the zero you have to multiply with the original 12 to get zero so add it it remains 85
and op i did get a ged so technically high school graduate
>tfw in the top 10% able to get it right
Because they're in rows labeled in a way that it shows you're supposed to do it left to right (based on where the equals sign is).
The format is not less clear because it's in columns due to the spacing issue.
If it was not meant to be added left to right as one long equation the "=" would be in a different place.
This is something you should have learned long before 8th grade.
Depends on how you interpret the row breaks.
If if is simplified down to (5)(5)(1+0+1), the answer is 50.
2 could also be a valid answer. It is deliberately vague to cause confusion, and such equation would never be used in the real world.
Are you serious? You've got it right there and you're still doing it wrong.
He did the wrong order when he added up 12 different parts of the equation before he did the multiplication, which comes before addition in the order of operations.
this is more aboot how fucked your school teachers taught you
most taught say 1+0=1 or 1x0=1, anything with a zero equals the original number
just goes to show you how fucked the school system is.
(1+1+1+1+1) (1+1+1+1+1) (1+1x 0 + 1)
(5) (5) (0+2)
