# Most adults get it wrong: Can you solve this tricky math problem?

## Solve the equation in your head

Here we have a simple math equation, it is important, however, to keep track of the order of operations you learned in school. It’s crucial to complete the task. Below you can see the problem.

1 + 1 + 1 – 1 x 2 – 0 =?

Do you remember how to solve it? If not, we’ll show you the answer after the image below.

A

B

C

## Here is the correct answer

The solution to the equation is 1. How did we get that result, you ask?

The first part of the problem to solve is multiplication: 1 x 2.

Then all that remains is: 1 + 1 + 1 – 2 – 0. Which means 3 – 2, and that equals 1.

In the end, solving this equation is quite easy. However, you must start by calculating the multiplication – and not everyone remembers that.
