1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 - 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 x 0 = ?

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 :wink:

Hmmm, just seen the votes. May have to recommend http://www.specsavers.co.uk/

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. :slight_smile:

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.


Yes, so 14 + 0 = what?


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

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

Ah Pan you’ve brought back memories :smiley:

14 ?

you googled that :crazy: je-zus

you had a sexy math teacher? :wink:

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 :slight_smile:

and throwing chairs :smiley:
