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!
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!
