The previous post was on power, potential and saying goodbye to the old ways of livelihood which we get too comfortable with but moved on above all odds because of the divine encounter experienced firsthand through God's divine backing. Trust you were inspired.

Today's post would definitely call you to order. You may even have to do some serious background or foundation check. Are You giving the wrong answer?? You'll find out. Kindly check the table below.

I dare you to be true to yourself and answer correctly on first trial this simple arithmetic. No room for second guessing. Good luck!

Don't feel too bad if you didn't get the answer correctly on first trial. "yah just a cwiious olodo, just admit" *lol*, only teasing around. It's my duty to ensure you get it right. I'm super nice like that. *hehe, lol, don't jealous me either...*flips hair and gets back to business*

From the above illustration, it's evidenced that so many people give wrong answers to very simple questions. They don't hit the nail in the specified point, they give completely wrong answers to surprisingly simple questions. This happens as a result of ignorance, poor foundational problems, poor preparations, improper survey, guess work and theoretical analysis on every situation which has become the order of the day. People who give the right answers comprise of the very little percentage who actually get it right. I'm referring to the remaining ten percent from the table above.

For the purpose of easy analysis and effective comprehension by you, my distinguished audience, I'll refer to the people that fall within the ten percent, as the "ten percent guys" These ten percent guys are the "correct guys", they're really smart guys, very skillful, hard working, pacesetters and dedicated. These ten percent guys literally make things happen. But you know what, these guys ain't no super heroes, they aren't as gifted as you think or imagine, they have insecurities, weaknesses, limitations etc...They operate with a rule. The supreme rule they operate with is the "IGNORE THE NEGATIVITY RULE". These ten percent guys ignore the negative characteristics and work with the positive characteristics which they possess. That is where their power lies, that is their deepest and most treasured secret, that is their weapon and that is their vengeance. They equip themselves by consistently upgrading their defense mechanism which is Potential and Power. These ten percent guys are Great Readers, Leaders, Research addicts, and overall Lover of Wisdom. Believe me when I say their foundation is always grounded, and it remains same all the time. They are likened to that that solid rock referenced in the Holy Bible that can never be shaken. They get it right always.

When you give correct answers, things begin to happen, doors begin to open, unusual events begin to occur, untold stories begin to unfold, strange things begin to manifest, consistent good news becomes the order of the day.

Breath In, breath Out, meditate over and over again, embark on self scrutiny and answer sincerely, this very friendly question. Are You Giving The wrong answer? and there the Right Answer Lies.....

Nice, the answer is 12, giving preference to multiplication sign ahead of the addition sign. I said all that just to prove the theory in your write up. Good job, kudos.... Keep it up

ReplyDeleteAnswer is one.... Seeing that any number multiplied by 0 is null.

ReplyDeleteYours faithfully,

Dramzy :D

Nope. No it's not.

DeleteNo need to even bother my head.

ReplyDelete@Richard Bukoye, You failed silly. @Power engineers:You won silly, lol..call me up and receive your special package, @unknown, Lool

ReplyDelete@ellahillz I beg to disagree with u. In mathematics or a given equation precedence is always given to multiplication and division ahead of addition. U don't add before you multiply. That's where the acronym BODMAS was coined from

ReplyDeleteAlso, the answer can never be zero. If you decide to ignore the precedence rule and just add and multiply as the equation was written, then your answer would be 1 not zero

ReplyDelete@Bukoye haf vex, the answer is 1, not 12...lool..You'll get a something juicy too. working with the first correct answer, that is the preceding rule. *winks* well done my guy, you sabi book too. *hugs*

ReplyDeleteLol

Delete@Power engineer , yes you did sweetheart!

ReplyDeleteAmbiguous math seems to be trending at the moment.

ReplyDeleteAcceptable answers: 30 or 2

Incorrect answers (that I can think of): 31, 13, 12, 10 and 1

First possible solution (if written in a text editor which cuts words when there isn't enough space):

1+1+1+1+1

1+1+1+1+1

1+1*0+1=

1+1+1+1+11+1+1+1+11+(1*0)+1=30

Second possible solution (if the line break is placed there only to confuse us and the two first lines are not part of the equation):

1+1+1+1+1

1+1+1+1+1

1+1*0+1=

1+(1*0)+1=2

First incorrect solution (if written in a text editor which cuts words when there isn't enough space and "*0" does nothing):

1+1+1+1+1

1+1+1+1+1

1+1*0+1=

1+1+1+1+11+1+1+1+11+1+1=31

Second incorrect solution (assuming line break means addition and "*0" does nothing):

1+1+1+1+1+

1+1+1+1+1+

1+1*0+1=

1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1=13

Third incorrect solution (assuming line break means addition, with operator precedence and "*0=0"):

1+1+1+1+1+

1+1+1+1+1+

1+1*0+1=

1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+(1*0)+1=12

Fourth incorrect solution (treating numbers like variables means assuming the absence of an operator implies a multiplication, with operator precedence and "*0=0"):

1+1+1+1+1*

1+1+1+1+1*

1+1*0+1=

1+1+1+1+(1*1)+1+1+1+(1*1)+(1*0)+1=10

Fifth incorrect solution (assuming line break means addition, no operator precedence and "*0=0"):

1+1+1+1+1+

1+1+1+1+1+

1+1*0+1=

1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1*0+1=1

ummmmm....yea its kinda late but Richard Bukoye is very correct.........its maths....we all need to use the law of BODMAS.....multiplication before addition.....if d author doubts, just use a calculator....all calculators follow the principle of BODMAS ...thank you

ReplyDeleteanswer is 1 .it is simple

ReplyDeleteCorrect answer is 2.

ReplyDeleteFirst 2 lines don't count because there is not a + at the end of the line, so we only consider the last line.

Google 1+1*0+1= The answer is 2.
