Many people start developing a headache from the mere thought of doing mathematics! For many of us, numerical problems are real torment. However, tedious as it may seem, solving this kind of puzzles is good for the brain.

To challenge your calculation skills, we offer you this interesting and seemingly easy puzzle, the key to which lies in the order. Can you find the result of the following problem? We leave you with a clue: the result is neither 1 nor 12. Go ahead!

The result is 30. Why? Very simple, as mentioned before, the key is the order. In the absence of parenthesis, all multiplications and divisions go first. With this in mind, the first calculation is multiplication 1 x 0.

Then, 0 is added to remaining numbers. The double 1s that don’t have any plus sign in between are considered to be 11s, therefore 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 0 + 1 = 30.
