1. Multiplication always takes precedence… So the 1×0 should be performed first… Which results in zero. Then you simply add all the other 1’s together.

2. What’s the default sign when there is no sign? Notice when the problem continues to the next line there’s no sign between the numbers.

3. The answer depends on where you put the brackets, as these are not put here. Thinking about it – when there are no brackets, it’ll mean that the addition before the multiplication sign are in brackets. The correct answer is 1

4. Roy Dahl It’s the other way around; without brackets, it’s multiplication before addition, so that one single «1 x 0» turns to a zero. Adding the 12 ones to the one single 0  = 12

Ah, damn it, there’s two 11’s hidden in there. That makes the answer 30

5. ambiguous and therefore incorrect equation

parenthesis are needed

6. the + signs are missing from the end of the first two lines which really invalidates the entire post

7. The answer is 1 the way it’s written. Even if they’re 11s or have implied + signs after each break it would either be 12•0+1=1 or 30•0+1=1. The only way the answer could be different is if there were parentheses around the first 2 lines and then it would be 5+5+1=11. ﻿

8. Nicholas Brickhouse and you forget that multiplication happens before addition.

9. Sami Haahtinen​ in order to do the multiplication you have to know what you’re multiplying hence the addition of the first numbers. It’s linear﻿

10. Nicholas Brickhouse No, it isn’t linear. First multiplications, then additions. So it’s 1 x 0 = 0, then add all the 1’s and 11’s to the zero.

11. 30

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11

+ 1 + 1 + 1 + 11

+ (1 x 0)

+ 1

=  15 + 14 + 0 + 1 = 30

12. Either 30 or 2 depending do you read it as one awkwardly broken line or as three separate ones in which case only the third one is counted.

13. Lars M. Hansen you’re right, shows you how long it’s been since I was in school or had to use any math like this for that matter.

14. I have to take back my answer of 12 because it looks like there were two «hidden» 11s in there… 😊

Liker

15. Forget the 2 first lines. Cause it only says 1+1+1+1+1. Not 1+1+1+1+1+

a+0a+a=2a

1+0+1=2﻿

17. Gjermund Buset you can’t assume the first 2 lines are distractions because the field isn’t long enough for all the characters. One has to assume it’s a continuation based on available space.

18. Nicholas Brickhouse​​ While missing character +﻿ at the end of the first 2 lines, it could be like Lars Fosdal​’s solution then. But I cannot see more correct alternatives.
