Here is the challenge, in the picture below.

Which solution do you think is the correct one?

Are you smart enough to solve it?

To make it a little easier, we thought it was only fair to give you a few options – so you have A, B, or C.


To get the right answer, one has to remember the order in which they should solve things.




Time for the answer

First of all, we need to start with solving the multiplication in the brackets

7 (7- 6)

Then you solve the equation within the brackets

7 (1)

Now you can continue with solving the multiplication:

7 x 1 = 7

Now you have the solution to the equation: It’s 7

The answer is: 7, option B
