You are correct but it is a fucking warped question which isn't put forward in the manner it should be. Someone done something like this before and it is a load of fucking shit. The majority will deal with the equation in the manner it has been put forward...This guy puts it as it should be!

Well Wayne, if you have a B.Sc. in Computer Science and Finance, and have programmed a bot that earns you 20–40% return on any basis at all, then I suspect you are already fully capable of dealing with a question like this.

Perhaps you have also programmed a bot that asks elementary and repetitive questions on Quora.

Anyway if you performed your calculation on a calculator then 50+50–25 would give you 75 x 0 which would be zero and then + 2 + 2 would be 4.

If you followed the convention that multiply and divide take precedence then in effect you would have 50+50–0+2+2=104.

My own preference as a mathematician and (admittedly a long time ago) programmer is to write clearly and unambiguously what you mean in the first place.

If for example you mean (50+50)(250)+(2+2)(50+50)−(25∗0)+(2+2)then wouldn't it be so much simpler to say that?

 

So basically, trying to be a fucking smart arse in putting forward equations like that is a load of fucking bollox imo!

Just apply Bodmas.

you're putting out an equation to the general public.............DID YOU MENTION applying whatever the fuck Bodmas is ? Rather than trying to be a smart fucking arse....put the equation down using the brackets where required & then anyone with a modicum of intelligence could answer it. However the way the question is shown then MY answer of 4 is correct!

AS the c&p I used says....

Rather than being a smart arse ?

Do you know what Bodmas is? BB got it easy enough! 😲
