Crazy Math Problem

Can you solve this math question correctly: 4 x 4 + 4 x 4 + 4 – 4 x 4 = ?

The answer is 20 (not 320 like 70% of most people think).

Here’s why… It’s the Order of Operations. (That’s basically multiplication, division, addition, then subtraction.)

So looking at it like this: (4 x 4) + (4 x 4) + 4 – (4 x 4) = 20

16 + 16 + 4 – 16 = 20

Sadly, you are probably now even more confused than when you started!
