- 2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2-2+2 x 0?
I’d be interested in the professions/jobs of anyone who does not think this is 0.
My 9 year old strolled past – saw this thread and laughed – saying “anything multiplied by zero is zero… isn’t it…”
Any arguments about this will be about the way it is written and what it “means”Posted 6 years ago
Should be 26. Multiply / divide operations take precedence over add / subtract, then you evaluate left to right. So, you’ve got the first twelve 2’s for a total of 28, minus 2 to see if you’re being observant to make 26, then plus (2 x 0) to still equal 26.
EDIT: Wow, a lot of posts whilst I typed that. Never heard of BODMAS etc.Posted 6 years ago
Yes it will. But your still wrong
How can that be both wrong and right.Posted 6 years ago
Any number multiplied by zero is zero. The answer to the problem stated above might be different from that statement, but there is nothing to connect the two. Linguist who might be considered cunning.ElfinsafetyMember
What a packet of nonsense. You could just as easily say it’s 24:
Or any other number of combinations.
There’s no brackets in the original sum. Therefore it is zero, if it is to be interpreted as it is writed. You can’t just add brackets in to try to look clever you know.Posted 6 years ago
Yeah Elf, except there are set rules, taught at GCSE level maths, that define exactly how it should be read.
And they say it is 26.

I didn’t – they are just to illustrate who to read it in the correct BODMAS/PEMDAS order.Posted 6 years ago
