Okay, now onto the challenge itself.
In the picture below, we see a mathematics problem made for middle schoolers.
The challenge: are you able to solve it without a calculator?
Remember the order of operations. What part should you solve first?Think about it carefully so you answer correctly!
Can you solve it?
The correct answer is A: 61.
Why is that?
Well, first of all, we have to start by solving the multiplication, 60 x 0, which will be 0.
So this leaves u: 61
But if you forget you must always start with the multiplication, then it gets tricky!
