    Funny then that we have all forgotten the one same rule then? If I'm wrong I always happy to admit it but I want to see what some more people I know get as well know to see how many other people have forgotten this rule.

    I swear the only rule I remember is brackets fro orders though

    (2x4^2)

    Whats your answer? Should be 64 according to what you think but i bet you get 32. You probably implicitly remember the rule, just not all of it.

    Here's an easy way to understand it.

    If you had a 10 second ultima and were racing against 10x0 ultimas, how many volkswagens were you building?

    Born in 86 taught order of operations from primary you sir are wrong. Infact this type of question is something they'd put in a test after teaching kids order of operations to see who had actually learnt it.

    That facebook post is scary the one guy that got the right answer is being hammered by morons, sad world we live in.

    02PRUV,

    Did you leave school in year 8.

    Order or operations are covered in very early on in high school if not maybe in late primary school. Simple rule multiplications and divisions first, additions and subtractions next.

    On the brackets, Google puts the brackets in so dumb cunts know that, that is the order of operation.

    If using windows run calc.exe, put it into scientific mode and try 10 + 10 * 0 [enter]

    try writing a program that divides by zero, or do it on a calculator. You'll get an exception or error message,

    your brain must hurt.

    even If I simplistically read it left to right and I still get 10.

    think of it as

    10

    add

    ZERO lots of 10.

    what if we wrote the equation to be 10 + 0 x 10 = ?

    by your logic what would your answer be then, 100?


    ps - I was born in 1979 and went to a shit school and still got the right answer.

    I co-wrote a program that breaks down advanced matrix operations to each individual step and outputs them to track errors in matrix designs. You can trust me when I tell you that the answer is

    A computer can't multiple 0.

    Well asked another 4 people and one got it right. So it looks like outside brackets there are a lot or us that have forgotten the part of the rule that is multiple/divide before add/sub

    I'll admit, that the first time I read this, I immediately thought 0, I suspect its some kind of mind conditioning that whenever you see * 0 - the answer is zero, however that lasted approximately 5 seconds until I re-read it.

    Try writing it into a program. It comes up with an error.

    I teach 8/9 year olds. In my Maths extension class I teach them BOMDAS, or order of operations. You'll usually do BOMDAS in year 6-7 depending on your state curriculum. I'll ask them on Monday what they think the answer is. I recon I know what they'll get.

    Okay you think the order of operations is confusing, how about I prove that Pi (the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter) is not 3.14159 but in fact 4.0?



    Go for it guys.
