I hated math in school and in all transparency, numbers still give me anxiety! I admit freely that even keeping my checkbook balanced is a nightmare!
But one math puzzle has been making its way around the internet, stumping people everywhere.
Think you can figure it out?
Scroll down and see if you can remember this from your math class days!
While it looks simple, it’s more complicated than it looks!
How did you do?? Think you got the answer? Let’s check:
So how did they solve the problem?
Remember that thing called order of operations? Parentheses, exponents, multiplication and division, and addition and subtraction.
Since there are no parentheses or exponents, the first thing you are supposed to do is the multiplication: 2 x 0 = 0.
Next you do the addition. When you add the number “2″ twelve times and add in the number “0″ from your multiplying, you get a total of 24!
Yeah, I didn’t get it right either!
