i know you need to know fraction equations but algebra? foh..........
Well I know if you want to be a manager that you need basic algebra since majority of the report is using formula. Y x g= z can easily be y = wage g = hours and z = how much your pay before any tax. you don't use x or y. Those are replaced by real words. sh*t just look at your bills. Algebra is everywhere on that bill.

The problem's answer comes down to whoever is asking the question. Whether they are asking you straight forward to solve it left to right or if they are asking you to use algebra.

Example: a child in elementary would not use p.e.m.d.a.s, and would still be correct. While an individual in Jr High and above would use p.e.m.d.a.s when asked unless of course it was a child asking the equation.

Sorry fam, math is everywhere. Even cooking.....

I love math and can see algebra in everything, especially cooking. If I want to cook a meal for four people and I have two three quart pots and one pound of chicken how can I feed all of the people. I would have to have decent algebraic skills to realize I would need to make a soup of some sort and how much would be enough; well it would be more math. Not just in the amount of people I want to feed, but in the size of the plate and bowls.

You have to group both 7-4 and 3 x 0 into parentheses. Therefore, 7-4 gets solved right after or alongside 3 x 0. Math is nothing more than strategy and patience. This problem is an example of trolling as it was written unclearly.

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.
This equation doesn't need parenthesis. Putting the multiplication inside parenthesis is redundant. You do that first regardless. If you were to see this in a math book, it would look exactly like this, with no parenthesis.

A child in elementary school would not be asked this question. At least not from a teacher. Unless he knew or was taking/testing algebra.

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
no dummy

3x0=0 so cross those to numbers out. once u see anything times 0 just takes that part out the problem



7-4+1=4
it all goes from left to right because neither addition and subtraction are greater then each other. same goes for multiplication and division

ya placing parentheses in different spots changes things but there doesnt HAVE to be parentheses at all. if there are no parentheses it doesn't make the problem unsolvable. You still follow the order of operations

Even in something as factual as math you still got dudes arguing over whats right
