I think it's 41 cos you do the multiplication first.

Hmmm maybe I'm completely wrong. I just calculated it and it said 41 but I always thought 0x anything was 0 I'm so confused lol

You do the multiplication first bonks so :
40 + (40x0) + 1 =
40 + 0 + 1 = 41

Yep 41 because of the order of operations- multiplication first, so
40x0=0
Then work from left to right, so 40+0+1=41

7. Sorry Bonkers, according to the rule of operation- BODMAS, you're wrong.

It's 41.

Don't be embarrassed...so many people forget about this rule. On the facebook poll it was close to even and on this poll it is even!

The order of operations is:
1. Brackets (B)
2. Orders: Exponents and roots (O)
3. Multiplication or division (DM)

So the answer is 41 in this case

I loved maths at school. Was a very strong point of mine

14. I'd better get it right since I'm a teacher!
