LB please dont let me down :w00t:

too easy with a calculator

here we go again with this…:laugh:

Not as straightforward as it first seems… judging by the votes so far anyway…

but a calculator will be wrong

Google says it’s 14… and I agree.

It is tricky when there are no brackets, but you do division and multiplication first, then addition and subtraction.

Explanation found here - http://math.about.com/library/weekly/aa040502a.htm

when you times something by 0 you get 0 right?

Anything x 0 = 0

Or I’m being thick.

BODMAS?

Yes, so 14 + 0 = what?

7?

Anything x 0 does equal 0… but you still need to practice your maths…

There is one other rule for this thing that needs to be applied

Ah Pan you’ve brought back memories

14 ?

you googled that :crazy: je-zus

you had a sexy math teacher?

Hmmm …After a good long look at that sum . I think I want some cheese .

Sadly not… just remembering the fun times at school… you know the usual playing truant, setting fire to blackboards, lobbing a c-90 from the roof

Google knows everything!

So, as I said above, in a long equation like that, do the multiplication and division first, then add/subtract it all. So, yes, one 1 is being multiplied by 0 which gives 0, but you add that to all the other 1’s and you get 14

and throwing chairs
