    Default You do the maths

    I posted this elsewhere and have varied responses to what the answer would be. What do you think is the correct answer? Starting to doubt my own 'answer', but maths was never a strong point with me lol:

    5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 5 x 0 = ?

    On an unrelated note, I only just found this out today, when someone posted it on FB.

    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Yes, which is why I ended up with 15.

    0.

    Nothing to do with BODMAS at all. One step before that - basic multiplication!

    Anything multiplied by 0 is zero.

    You do the multiplying before the addition and substraction.

    Hmmmm i must be thick because i get 20 before it's multipled by zero, so my maths tell me if i have 20 and i multiply it by nothing it's still 20, i had 20 to start with so how can multiplying it by zero make it 0? it was multiplied not subtracted.

    EDIT Rhinoz just explained it, i got A levels in English not maths lol

    Well it is, some folks can't get the order of the maths, BODMAS would show that you do M before any A or S, so you would get zero.

    5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 5 x 0 = 15

    Because it should be processed as

    5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + (5 x 0) = 15
