**ANSWER**

**The correct answer is 104.**

Always start with the multiplication.

How did we end up with that solution?

First, you calculate the multiplication 25 x 0, which of course becomes 0. This is one of the basic rules of mathematics.

Then we have: 50 + 50 – 0 + 2 + 2, which results in 104.

So the important detail, to get to the right answer, is to start with the multiplication. Otherwise, things get messy.

**Did you solve it on your own? Good job then!**
