# Thread: 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 5 x 0 = ?

1. ## 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 5 x 0 = ?

OK, this is a simple math question. 6200 people on Facebook got it wrong, and only 400 people got it right.
Let's see if the JV community are smart enough.

It's simple. What number is equal to this?
5 + 5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 5 x 0 = ?

Answer in the thread until I have gotten a moderator to make a poll.

3. 42

19. In order of what you do,

P
E
M
D
A
S

Or please excuse my dear aunt sally

Parentheses, exponents multiplication, division, addition, subtraction.

For both multipication and addition, the order doesn't matter due to the properties of multipication and addition.

Ex. 3*4=12 4*3=12

Therefore, you would first multiply the 5 by the 0 and get 0. Then complete the problem.

Yes, so it's basically the same as 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 0 if that makes it easier

25. As has been said, but can always be reiterated, the answer is 15. And people getting it wrong is not an example of stupidity, and in the same way people getting it right is not an example of intelligence. It all comes down to both awareness of rules AND remembering they need to be applied (As no math above fifth grade levels uses "x" to signify multiplication, unless cross multiplying matrices), as well as being observant.

27. Ah yes, a lot of people are quick to see the "times zero" part, and just assume it's 0.
It happens.
