It seems to be a divided question.

4 x 4 + 4 x 4 + 4 - 4 x 4


People are mostly (like 95% of people) getting 320 and 20.

I got 16.

4 x 4 + 4 x 4 + 4 - 4 x 4

12 + 12 + 4 - 12

24 + 4 - 12

28 - 12

16

I was taught it helps to put parentheses before and after the numbers next to the x.
Like this:
(4 x 4) + (4 x 4) + 4 - (4 x 4)


Batches love parentheses.

This is what should have been done in the first place. That said, if people remembered their order of operations, everyone would get 20.

I originally saw it as (4x4)+(4x4)-(4x4)

I didn't see that there was an extra "4-" in there.

To be fair there's really no need to add parentheses. They don't add or change anything in this case.

Something I've always wondered, why do people say 'math' instead of 'maths'? It's short for 'mathematics' not 'mathematic'.

We just drop everything after "math."

Okay, so you have 4. Think of it as rows and columns.
1111 - That's one row of stuff. 1+1+1+1 = 4

Now add three more of those same rows (four rows):
1111
1111
1111
1111

If you count up all the 1's you'll find that there's 16 1s in that second bit.

Also, 16 is 1 0000 in binary and 10 in hexadecimal. Hex is nailed so far in my head that I don't even need to really think about it. Actually, I have found that learning about binary and hexadecimal substantially improves one's ability to do math calculations purely mentally.

/showingoff

EDIT: Seriously, hex/binary just makes more sense than base 10 and hex/binary are interchangeable with each other through minimal effort.

It's more efficient. Americans save over 20 million tons of saliva and ink each year by omitting the "s" in "maths".

We get legos and math confused.

But mostly because if we're going to shorten the word, there's no reason at add the last letter.
