hey guys, was just on facebook and saw one of these math poll things, at first I wanted to slap some people when I saw they answered with 41, since obviously just going left to right it's clearly 1.

But with the BEDMASS thing it does work out to be 41. If you just toss it into a calculator you still get 1 though.

I thought you only used BEDMASS for certain questions, paticularly ones with brackets.

So what does the pit think?

41 or 1?

EDIT: I KNOW it's 41.

40 x 0 goes first... That's a 0

Then you got 40+1 left...

You do the math...

41. multiply first, so 40 + 0 + 1 = 41.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
It's an ambiguous equation because it's not properly written and lacks parentheses/brackets.

40 + (40x0) + 1 = 41.

Are parentheses really needed? The mathematical order of operations always applies.

That's how I calculated it.

And yeah I've seen those things a lot on facebook the last few days. Why the sudden interesting in maths?

multiplication comes before addition, if you dont apply that you are wrong. Nothing is wrong with the question pit stop trying to make excuses for your failings its 41

God damn it math teachers must suck.

Agreed. How can anyone pass highschool not knowing that the answer to the above question is 41?

40 + 40 x 0 + 1 = 1
40 + (40x0) + 1 =41

Both of those sums are the same thing. To get 1 it would have to be
(40+40x0)+1

No. It's quite simple if you know basic math and order of operations.

Fixed. It's still 41 without the parentheses.

Order of operations is implied. Parenthesis exist specifically to override it or instruct you to do a different calculation first. You should not need parenthesis to calculate 2 + 3 x 4.

if i am correct the only time left to right math occurs when the problem is only multiplication and division or addition and subtraction. I'm pretty damn sure its 41.

41.

BEDMAS ALWAYS. Your point about it only applying when brackets are present is completely wrong. The B stands for brackets. When brackets aren't there you move on to the next component, exponents.

Also, a proper calculator will give you the correct answer of 41. If yours says 1, maybe you should invest in a real calculator instead of using the one from your box of frosted flakes.
