Can you solve the equation?
Something else that puts everything inside the head to work is a challenging math equation. On the web, you can find plenty of problems to solve – with different difficulties.
You can test yourself and find out how much you actually remember while healthily exercising your mind, a win-win situation!
Here comes today’s challenge!
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 a calculator.
Here’s the problem! What do you think is the answer?
Don’t stress, look closely and try to figure out how to get the right solution.
Below the next picture, we’ll show you the 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!
