Default WEBKINZ PARENTS GIVEAWAY ON FACEBOOK

There is a new announcement on Webkinz Newz about a Plush Pet Giveaway for parents on Facebook. It tells us to go on Facebook, click on the Winterfest Giveaway and fill in the info then like Webkinz on Facebook.

The problem at the bottom which you have to resolve to enter is:

(10x10) + (14-4) divided by 2 (I don't have division symbol on my keyboard). I thought I was pretty good at math and I got 55 as the answer (100 + 10 divided by 2). Can someone else look at this on Facebook and tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Thanks.

I'm not on facebook so cannot check it, but a question about how it is written:
is it (14-4)/2 plus 10x10 giving an answer of 105?
Or is the 'divided by 2' under the whole thing (then you should be correct)?

I got the entry all filled out and answered the question as 55 and sure enough it shows "error - your answer was incorrect"

The math equation is shown on there as
(10x10) + (14-4) / 2
which should equal 55. I've tried messing up where the math symbols should go - nothing doing - all get the same response..... weird

your answer should be 112 only the 14-4 is /by 2 according to my son who has an aa in math. Good Luck

I found some silly thing about where you have to fill in the answers space - some at WKN will only accept the answer when using the cap button -the numbers appear the same but ...

not sure if that would help in this one

I haven't been to FB and being outside of the USA probably can't do it anyway

been a long time since I got an A in math so you might want to try the other answers too

The parentheses in the equation are actually in the wrong place.............if you go to the Webkinz page on Facebook and look at the comments under the announcement about the contest people have posted the correct equation............the answer is 105.

Here's a copy of the equation with parentheses in the right spot:
(10x10 )+ (14-4รท2) =

The correct answer is 105.

When doing a problem such as this (10 x 10) + (14 - 4) / 2, you do the parentheses first. Perhaps you may have not learned this yet but if if you're old like me you may remember it, you must follow the proper order of operations: Parentheses, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition Subtraction (Please Excduse My Dear Aunt Sally).

Therefore, Parentheses first (10 x 10 = 100) + (14 - 4 = 10) / 2
Then Division (10) / 2 = 5 (Because the /2 part of the equation is associated with the (14 - 4) part of the problem)
Addition last: 100 + 5 = 105

I hope this helps!

WOW, I have two degrees and very high grade point averages in everything and when I went to school seems like a hundred years ago now, we were taught differently.

That's why I decided to put the problem before my fellow WIers and now have the solution. I'll try this.

THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR GREAT INFORMATIVE HELP! I KNEW I COULD DEPEND ON YOU.

If anyone needs help completing their challenges, just friend mommysbabe19, caseyshoddy58, and hoddyswebkinz2010. We'll be glad to help send things to our WI members.
