It’s basic math at its finest. You might think the answer is 56, but you have to follow the order of operations, which I was taught is PEDMAS and means you need to do the following operations in this order: parenthesis, exponents, division, multiplication, addition, subtraction.

Following those rules, you must divide and multiply first, making the equation look like this:

7 + 1 + 49 – 7 = ?

Keep on going and 7 + 1 + 49 – 7 = ?

## becomes 7 + 1 + 49 – 7 = 50.

## The correct answer is 30.

To arrive at this solution, you’ve got to use PEMDAS, which means you’ll do the multiplication first. The equation would be:

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

= 29 + 0 + 1

= 30
