No good at math (I repeated basic algebra 3 times in college). I was good until the 2nd line trying to figure out how 2 bell multiplied by a candy cane gave me the answer of 12 when the candy cane equals 5.....see what I mean, no clue! But I tried.

I have forgotten everything about PEMDAS apparently. Someone please explain. I looked at the answer and tried to even go back and see how they got there. Just for the third one.

Its missing brackets in the 3rd line for the math to work

ReplyDeleteDoesn't need paras or brackets. PEMDAS has it covered.

DeleteYep. Very good. Understanding the order of operations is required to solve this. "Unknown" doesn't understand that. Thanks for the puzzle today.

ReplyDeleteWell done and thank you

ReplyDeleteMerry Christmas to YOU🎅🏼🥳🎄🥰

Love this. Happy Holidays!

ReplyDeleteIsn't the value of the hat = 9? Not 1?

ReplyDeleteNot if you follow the order of operations. Multiplication is done before any subtraction or addition can happen
