# Let’s find out if you’re smart enough to solve this tricky math problem

## Ready to solve the equation?

Take a look at the math puzzle below and see what you make of it. Also, check the clock before you start. How fast can you do this?

Here is the challenge, in the picture below.

At the top of the picture we see the task and then three possible answers.

Which solution do you think is the correct one?

Are you smart enough to solve it?

To make it a little easier, we thought it was only fair to give you a few options – so you have A, B, or C.

7 (7 - 2 x 3) = ?

To get the right answer, one has to remember the order in which they should solve things.

A

B

C

First of all, we need to start with solving the multiplication in the brackets

7 (7- 6)

Then you solve the equation within the brackets

7 (1)

Now you can continue with solving the multiplication:

7 x 1 =

Now you have the solution to the equation: It’s 7

The answer is: 7, option B

Did you get it right? Congratulations!
