Nah, just kidding. You're correct! I wouldn't even be sad if people answered 16 because of that tricky - sign in the middle, but 0?!

I lost count in the middle a few times just due to size of the image but it's not rocket science. Most people just don't know basic math.

I missed the sign change and just said 16. Anyone who said 0 missed 5th grade math.

Read up on Order of Operations.

I don't mean to diss you, but that is something that SHOULD have been taught in grade school math.

Yes so it breaks down that the last term = 0. So its 1+1.....+0

You can't ignore the fact that not everybody uses this stuff regularly and for some people it is very easy to forget things that they haven't used in a while.

I'd say him forgetting order of ops is not really a measure of his intelligence lol.

I'm sure it was but how the fuck is one supposed to remember shit from back then if you don't use math in everyday life? And don't give me the "Well this is basic math" bullshit. How many fucking times have you added something where it was 1+1+1+1....x0?

Most likely people did not sit down and really thought about it, it was an impulse...oh they are multiplying by zero at the end so I am not going to waste my time counting the ones.

Imagine this:

You have 5 individual eighth bags
You also have 10 shoe boxes full of 4 eighth bags each.


So to figure out how many eighth bags you have total:

1+1+1+1+1+10*4

This equals 45 eighth bags, not 60.

You guys want to know something funny? My Dad is a mechanical engineer, a total math geek. He used to beat my ass when I was younger when I didn't get shit that came easy to him. I sucked at math and still do even to this day.
