Thirteen…

I believe it’s 20

I’m going with 13

yes it’s 13

You did this last year Nick

Proper algebra; multiply first then add which would equal 13 but speedy math of sum and then multiply equals 20…

2(7+3)= 20

I got 20…

It’s 13
PEMDAS fellas…
7 + 3x2 = 13

Ye guys and your backwards math!! :stuck_out_tongue:

from here the answer is 20.
(7+3)X2=20

  1. Do the multiplication before the addition. Took me a minute (maybe longer) to remember back as far as primary school. Only been ___ years! Have a wonderful holiday everyone.

Your answer to your equation is correct, however there are no parentheses in Nick’s equation. Pay attention to the mathematical order of operations.

Which would be multiplication addition subtraction.
7 plus (addition) 3 multiplied (before addition) 2 equals 13.
I’m pretty sure even without parenthesis you still go with that order.

Agree… :smile:

7 + 3x2 = 13

Well try this one 7 + (3 x 2 )= 13
So now they are both right. LOL
