# 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1X0+1, The Arts Of China After 1620

it is1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 1 x 0 + 1i.e. 4 + 11 + 3 + 11 + 0 + 1 => 30

A two-digit number would never, ever be broken into separate parts in this manner in an equation; and if so, it would be incorrect, period. And if the creator of this insists that it would be this way, then the question itself is flawed because there is no axiom in mathematics that would support this structure.

You are watching: 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1×0+1

Period.

It would if you typed it into a space that is not long enough for it to fit. Try typing consecutive numbers into your phone.Also, its labelled a number puzzle, not a mathematical equation. Solve the puzzle (numbers broken into separate lines) then solve the equation.

Your phone analogy doesn’t work. You’re right, the phone number would wrap it wherever – but it doesn’t ADD the numbers, either.

You can’t have it both ways.

2. The first two lines don’t have all the necessary symbols to express a problem to be solved, nor are you allowed in mathematical typography to do a line break between two digits in a number. In other words, you can’t combine the last 1 in the first row with the first 1 in the second row and assume you’re reading an 11. That’s not allowed in typography. So the first two lines have no relationship to each other or the third and can be ignored as mathematical garbage. The third line, however, does express a complete problem to be solved, with all the necessary symbols.

Now, all you need to solve is 1 + 1 x 0 + 1 = ?

BIMDAS tells you how to solve this: Brackets, Indices, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction are the order of the operations you solve. So, the problem actually looks like this: 1 + (1 x 0) + 1 = 1 + 0 + 1 = 2.

Sorry, but 30 is the wrong answer. If you key in exactly what is in the puzzle into any modern calculator without using brackets, it will process each operator sequentially, so the long form of the puzzle is

( ( ( ( ( ( ( ( ( ( ( 1 + 1 ) +1) +1) +11) +1) +1) +1) +11) +1) x 0) +1)

Hence the answer will therefore be (30 x 0) +1 which gives the answer 1. BIDMAS, BODMAS, call it what you like, it only applies if the brackets are already there. 1 + 2 x 3 – 4 is not the same as 1 + (2 x 3) – 4 or (1+2) x (3-4) is it? So why would it matter where the (x0) is in this puzzle?

Sometime I think people are too smart for their own good. The easiest way to rationalize this is, it was typed on a narrow piece of paper. Would it make more sense to you if it was posited:1+1+1+1+11+1+1+1+11+1×0+1=

or1+1+1+1+11+1+1+1+11+1×0+1=

Thisis thethe problemyou were given.

Quit making excuses because you were not observant enough to extrapolate from the facts presented.

this isnt a sheet of paper. either way to continue an equation; one must write the last function and continue the next number on the following line. otherwise it is simply a sequence of functions or operations..
