i love how all the "i got 4" comments dont include how they came to that conclusion. they just repeat sh*t like PEDMAS or FOIL. who gives a sh*t about this math when most of you are mopping a floor or asking people "paper or plastic"?
This ain't school. We beyond having to show how we came up with the answer. Not everyone need to write sh*t down to figure it out. And pemdas is how you figure it out.

Since there's only multiplication, addition and subtraction in this, you multiply first, then add and subtract in the order they appear. It really is that fu*king simple. What do you not get? And no one said foil because you don't do that here.

correct me if im wrong but isnt anything times anything 0 ??? so it would be 0 + 1 = 1 no ??

You got the 0 part right but you are doing the rest wrong. There is no 0+1 here.

They are under the impression that is supposed to include parenthesis around the multiplication for some reason. The order of operations does not require parenthesis to be around multiplication or division. You do them first regardless. The question is written perfectly fine.

first I got 1....

then I looked again and saw the ( ) rule for multiplication, then I got 4.

Not sure how this will ever be used in life though.

Nearly everyone in the workforce should now when to add or multiply. Someone comes to your Burger King and asks for 5 $1 burgers and 5 $3 burgers

Obviously the computer will do it for you, but you should still now it should be 5 x 1 + 5 x 3 and that it should be solved as:

5 x 1 + 5 x 3 =
5 + 15 = 20

Not:

5 x 1 + 5 x 3 =
5 + 5 x 3 =
10 x 3 = 30

Anyone that doesn't know how this sh*t operates obviously holds the most mediocre of jobs. It's not an excuse not to know how to do this type of math no matter how often you use it.

I don't even think this sh*t classifies as algebra as you've been calling it all thread long. It's basic mathematics, do you see exponents and whatnot included in this sh*t?
That's my point though. In your example, no one is going to not think that it's 5 + 15. But they also wouldn't think of the question in the form of the equation you wrote either. They're just gonna think, okay, 5 dollars worth of one dollar burgers, 15 dollars worth of three dollar burgers, 20 dollars. The equation in the OP is written so as to be deliberately confusing so that some math nerd somewhere could feel superior, and I'm calling bullsh*t on that.

I wouldn't say it's incorrect. But you wouldn't write it this way if you weren't trying to be a d!ck.

The consensus is everyone in this thread isn't confident in using these equations. People who got it right can't explain why so the people who got it wrong have a great argument to why they are right. Everyone in here needs a math class if you ask me....
