There's nothing wrong with not getting this. Unless you continue to take math/chemistry/physics or some such in university, you don't do algebra ever after high school (with the exception of very simple algebra, possibly, but even then). I looked at the equation and couldn't remember the order you're supposed to do these things in (BEDMAS) until I looked at one of the first posts. Also, it's made more difficult by the fact that the necessary brackets are purposely left out.

What you need to be able to do as a life skill is multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction in your head. You also need to be able to figure out percentages and such in your head (which is still just multiplication or division). Those are good life skills.

you coulda did it that way too
Addition then subtraction

7-4+3 X0+1=

7-4+0+1=

7-4+1=

7-3=4

The simple way!


From left to right with the addition and subtraction

7-4+3 X0+1=

7-4+0+1=

3+0+1=

3+1=4

The correct way


The dumb people ignored the negative sign within the equation all together.

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.

no it wouldn't

honestly fu*k all the bullsh*t....unless you are into rocket science or sh*t that these equations call for why do you need to know.....i mean if you a cook do you really need to know algerba?
i know you need to know fraction equations but algebra? foh..........

This is basic order of operations that you learn in elementary school

wrong. you don't need parenthesis to do multiplication first
Without the brackets, it's not clear where the brackets are meant to go.

It could be: 7 - 4 + (3 x 0) + 1 = 4

Or: 7 - (4 + (3 x 0) + 1) = 5

Or: 7(-4 + (3 x 0) + 1) = - 21

sh*t it could even be: 7(-4 + 3) x (0 + 1), or any number or combinations, really.

It's deliberately confusing because the person who wrote it is a math nerd who was trying to get one over on people, not realizing that, actually, no one needs this skill except a few select people.

Well obviously you will never be a manager or do your own budget, finance, stock. Trust me when you start paying your own bills and get your own place that math will be your best friend

man this is really sad but the problem is 7 - 4 + 3 x 0+ 1=?

(P)lease (e)xcuse (m)y (d)ear (a)unt (s)ally.....so

P - parenthesis
E - exponents
M - multiply
D - divide
A - add
S - subtract.....so

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

P - none
E - none
M - multiply 1st: 7 - 4 + (3 x 0) + 1 = 7 - 4 + 0 + 1
D - none
A - add 2nd: 7- 4 + 0 + 1 = 7 - 5
S - subtraction last : 7 - 5 = 2......dumbass

if you type it on any calculator, the calculator will do it from left to right. calculators don't make mistakes on dumb fools using calculators make mistakes. i advise a lot of you that aren't in school to go to Barnes and Noble and find algebra for dummies.....gone
