Default 40+40x0+1=?

Saw this on FB and couldn't believe the amount of people who got it wrong.

Let's see how many of you paid attention during math.

40+40*0+1=

I got the right answer and I always see these on facebook. The problem is, its posted on facebook and online. So you have to think like a stupid person to get the stupid person answer... thats why I think a lot of people get it wrong.

If I were taking a quiz/test in school or something important I would think order of operations. But online, I would just do it straight across cause 99% of the time thats what the person who typed it meant. Unless its of course one of these, where the person thinks theyre smart cause they just learned the order of operations.

Funnily enough, I just messaged a friend of mine who got it wrong to tell him why he got it wrong... These math questions keep popping up on there, it's getting a bit old already... Though I did get to argue for a friend who got it right while another person kept trying to tell him he got it wrong.

So the X is really some sort of infinitum multiplier giving the zero next to it preternatural power of some math deity creating a swirling vortex of nothingness in which all other nearby numerals are sucked in never to be seen again.

Ah HAH!

I actually read up on it...

BEDMAS and PEMDAS(US mainly) are the same god damn thing..

B E DM AS or P E MD AS

DM/MD are interchangeable, done left to right: 7 x 3 / 2 = 10.5

AS/SA are interchangeable, done left to right: 5 + 1 - 4 = 2

Exponents can stack and make 'special circumstances'

Either way, the answer is '41'

I don't understand how she got 0. If you neglected that you need to do the multiplication first, and just went straight across you'd end up with 1. Does she think that if there is a 0 and a multiplication symbol the answer is always 0?

Don't you know, once you put a zero in an equation the answer is ALWAYS zero!

Clearly 40 + 15 = 0 since there's a zero in there.

But the paranthesis were not there so therefore it makes no sense that you would do it first. Even though we all know you do. I really think its a matter of how you look at it.

It's still 40x0 so you multiply that first before doing your division, addition, or subtraction.
