It's 4..

You multiply 3*0 which is 0, so you started out good.. After that, you do addition/substraction, whichever comes first. You don't do all the addition and then all of the subtraction, so..

7-4+1 = 4
so u dont add first u sure bout that

These kinds of equations and people getting them wrong have been all over the internet for a couple years now..

The answer is 4.. however, the question is phrased incorrectly. The correct phrasing would include the use of proper "brackets" or parentheses.

Assuming there are parentheses where there should be.. it would go (in order):

7 - 4 + (3 x 0) + 1 =
7 - 4 + (0) + 1 =
3 + 0 + 1 =
3 + 1 = 4

Since there aren't parentheses though, it would also be appropriate to solve from left to right.

This is where I got confused. I wasn't sure if you were supposed to do the addition first or work the problem from left to right after the multiplication

Edit: Nevermind. I got it

You're not alone.. this is the reason so many people get the question wrong because the parentheses are left out of the phrase and causes confusion.

Whenever a math question is written out like this, it's crucial and mathematically correct to include proper parentheses. That's why I feel like these questions are kind of "set up" to make people get it wrong and then have people say "you're bad at math, see how bad you are.. blah blah blah"

This sh*t is elementary.. like, seriously, 3rd grade.. If the brackets were included I'm sure a LOT more people would be getting it right.

No parentheses. So you go left to right. The answer is one.

No. If there aren't parentheses, then you add them (like you did). It's not appropriate to solve from left to right because you get an answer of 1 if you do... and that's wrong.

The way you did it is correct.

I get that the answer is wrong if you solve from left to right.. I'm saying the question isn't being asked correctly either.

Lol, I had two mean a.ss high school teachers that kept it 100 everytime. Teacher gave us an equation similar to this, she asked everyone if they were finished.

bi*ch went on to say "If any of you didn't get this (answer) as the answer you might as well drop my class right now and re-evalute your lives."
