# Try to solve this simple math quiz for middle schoolers – without a calculator

Recently, a new type of challenge has appeared on the net, although the quizzes themselves are not particularly new.

Trying this kind of challenge is exciting and fun, especially if it was a bunch of years since you last went to school.

It’s important to really think about it and try to remember those old rules of math your teacher kept writing on the chalkboard many years ago.

In addition, you must exercise your competitive instinct as well, which is always fun.

## Can you find the correct number?

Okay, here comes the challenge.

In the picture below, you will face a simple math quiz, and there are three different possible solutions you can pick from.

Which of the answers do you think is right?

It is important to try to remember the correct order to solve a math problem to get the right answer.

60 + 60 x 0 + 1 = ?

Below the next picture, you can see the correct answer!

A

B

C

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 us with 60 + 0 + 1 and so, it becomes quite easy to see that the correct answer is 61.

But if you forget you must always start with the multiplication, then it gets tricky!

Did you solve the problem correctly? Congratulations to you!
