Friday Puzzler: The solution
Last Friday we put you to the test with this puzzling problem.
4 x 4 + 4 x 4 + 4 – 4 x 4 = ???
Did you get the answer?
Read on to find out...
Explanation: For this question we need to revisit BODMAS.
There is clearly no Brackets, Orders or Division so we can skip straight to the Multiplication
4x4 + 4x4 +4 – 4x4 = 16 + 16 +4 – 16
How we have done this we can do the addition and subtraction at the same time which gives us
So the answer is 20.
