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?
but u didnt know to put a "k" when spelling know

The sad sh*t is that this is honestly 3rd grade level math, and about 50% of the idiots on here think it's something other than 4.

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....
7-4+3x0+1

multiply first

3x0=0

now you have

7-4+0+1

then you go from left to right

7-4=3

3+0=3

3+1= 4 (your answer)

anyone else doing it ANY OTHER WAY is incorrect

See, this is how to write it if you're not trying to be deliberately confusing. This is also how it would take place in a real scenario. Someone would say, "hey, I want three of the seven remaining items over there, and I want to add in three of those and one of those." And then you'd say, "sorry, we don't have any of the thing you want three of, so I'll get you those other four items."

No one would actually get this wrong in real life. They also wouldn't think of it in the form of an equation (most people wouldn't, anyway). Again, this is just math nerds being arrogant elitists.

i honestly did this on the computer calculator just now and got 1......

7 + 4 and 7 +(-4) are the same

edit: if u do it on the standard calculator vs the scientific calculator, u get two different answers. on the standard, u get 1 on the scientific u get 4

EDIT: typed this wrong fu*k yall lol

was supposed to be 7-4 not 7 + 4

No they aren't.

7+4= 11. 7+(-4)= 3.

Parentheses are only needed if it's separating something from the rest of the equation. There is nothing in this equation that needs to be separated because there isn't any back story to it. This isn't third grade, people shouldn't need parentheses to let them know where to go first.
