Not that I care about your fucking math problems, but its 288. I did this in my head, and plenty of NGers can too.

I don't think that works. Depends; is it supposed to be an algebretic expression?

Response to Solve this math equation 2011-04-10 16:18:27

The answer is 2. But yeah you're right at first I instinctively thought that the + sign was actually an x which meant I multiplied it at first.

I got 2.

I wonder, how that 50% breaks down, like how many are children who haven't yet reached the level of math, how many are older people who might have forgotten, how many are just illiterate or uneducated and how many are just forgetful or stupid..?

Actually, since you wrote it as a line, it really depends on how you look at it.

That's not how it works. The order of operations is Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication/Division, Addition/Subtraction. Not multiplication and then division.

I got 62, why do I get the feeling I'm wrong and should feel ashamed.. fuck you maths.

Response to Solve this math equation 2011-04-10 16:33:54

288. You do the parentheses first then the division then the multiplication.

Proper rules you learn in third grade.

And my calculator agrees. And so does Exel.

It's a long held truth the Newgrounders suck at math.
