# 99% Failed to Solve it : 6-1×0+2/2

Q.

99% have failed to solve this. Answer it ?

A.

As per rules of mathematics, we need to apply BODMAS  ( Brackets, Orders (powers and roots), Division and Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction) and follow the  order of operation. So, solving it will give:

a) 6 – 1 x 0 + 1 (because 2/2 is one and division takes the priority as order of operation                                                             because of BODMAS)

b) 6 – 0 + 1 (because 1 x 0 is 0 )

c)  7 – 0 ( Addition takes priority as order of operation  over subtraction                                                                  because of BODMAS)

d) 7 ( because 7 – 0 is 7)

Ans sahi h pr rule BODMAS nhi BODISA lgega

7 is the correct answer but the explanation is slightly wrong. BODMAS is actually:
B
O
DM
AS

with Division multiplication having equal weighting going left to right in the equation. Same with Multiplication. It doesn’t make a difference in the solution in this instance but may in other instances.

a) 6 – 0 + 2/2

b) 6 – 0 + 1

c) 6+1

d) 7
