Very few Americans get this right: Can you solve it using mental math?

Can you solve the equation?

Okay, now to the challenge.

Below is a tricky equation. Can you solve it without using a calculator?

The picture below shows a problem taken out of a school book, however, everyone online is tearing their hair out trying to find the solution. There’s only one rule – you can’t use calculators.

What do you think the right answer is?

Think long and hard and you might be able to remember!

A

B

C

Here’s the answer

The right answer is 104.

But how come?

First of all, before we do anything else, we need to solve the multiplication, and 25 * 0 gets us 0.

So what remains is 50 + 50 – 0 + 2 + 2 which gets us 104.

So the answer is 104.

Did you get the right answer? If so, then congratulations!
