hi gang(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

this came up in one of those crazy facebook challenges

and you can imagine the arguments that ensued

My maths knowledge isn't brilliant .... so in the above, if there are no brackets,

do you still do the multiplication first or do you just work your way through from end to end ?

I thought, regardless of brackets being there or not, I should follow the mult. first rule, giving result of 0

Now I'm not so sure, maybe those who just worked from end to end and got the answer of 10

are the people that are correct ?

regards

Dave
