Parentheses are still used in some of today's equations. But, as you can tell in the OP, there were no parentheses...

Again, that would be redundant.
Redundancy is especially unnecessary in math.

And that's why my answer is wrong. I wasn't thinking about the order that you have to use in math equations. If you simply go from right to left, forgetting that order, the answer would be one. I took Algebra 1 when I was 11. I'm obviously a little rusty.

I was a math major as an undergrad, so I'll answer 3 (in Z mod 4).

It's basic math.

The rule is always multiply / divide 1st. Then add/ subtract. It's not words so left to right does not apply.

It's 7

Order of operations. This is taught in elementary school. Basic math and basic grammar seem to be ungraspable concepts.

Well, if you went from right to left, you'd be deviating from the rest of the western world, where we go from left to right...

I always get a kick out of these things on Facebook. People get so worked up over it.

BTW...I got 7 by using the order of operations.

I get what RG is doing. I'm a very visual learner so putting it in parentheses helped me visualize it as well.

For the record I did come up with 7.
