Default Unanswered: facebook giveaway!

I tried to enter the facebook giveaway contest but when I put in my answer (55) to the math problem I keep getting the "wrong answer". I'm pretty sure my math is good (10 X 10) + (14 - 4) ÷ 2 =55 am I wrong??

lol, my child gave me the right answer 105! Seems I forgot a basic rule of math PEMDAS!

Personally I think if it were to be 105 as the correct answer it should be written like this...

(10 x 10) + ((14 - 4) ÷ 2) = 105


The bracketing on the equation you have written should give the answer 55 and I agree with you as breaking it down techically it reads 100 + 10 ÷ 2 and not 100 + 5.

If 105 is the correct answer then you won't be the only person getting it wrong!

The scientific calculator gives 105! Still don't understand why lol

LOL! That's too funny! But thanks for the post. I hadn't been on facebook in a while and didn't realize they were having a giveaway. Also thanks for the answer to the math question!

danzkinz, it's because you have to follow order of operations! You have to multiple and divide before you start adding and subtracting.
