please post your answers below.

40 + 40 x 0 + 1 =

41

reason being is order of operations (Parenthases, Exponents MULTIPLICATION, Division, ADDITION, then Subtraction) or PEMDAS. So you would do it like this

40+(40 x 0) +1

40 x 0 = 0 so plug it back in

40 + (0) + 1

and thats 41!

41

bodmas

are you bored or summut.

41, and i will tell you why if i need to.

Ahh good old BODMAS…

DAMN IT!

I saw a random photo yesterday online and it caused alot of confusion! I know the answer is 41, but after seeing the amount of confusion I decided to put it onto my FB and see what everyone said. I got a few different answers but the arguments it caused were hilarious!!!

I did wonder if it would work on here.

Obvs not. well done students!

Haha yes… The easy answer is of course 1, but that is not pure maths.

We’re all a bunch of geeks on here anyway

I think you’ll find the answer is 1

Not if you follow the rules of mathematical notation it isn’t as multiplication takes priority over addition.

FIGHT FIGHT!

Lol

sorry yes I am bored!

Didn’t we do all this a couple of months ago?

Just goes to show forum users are more intelligent than farcebook users.

1 =]

Well without specifying the order of operations of course you will cause confusion. The skill is doing so at the right time when the maximum number of people will take the bait and start arguing. You can see from this thread that initially the timing was bad = no arguments. But since then you seem to have tapped into the “bored” continuum and its about to kick off.

42

yes. Always 42 But yes as eezyrida said you have to present this to a bunch of stupid people to create an argument. FB is made for that

42? Please show your workings.

You too swerver!
