Order of operations says start from left to right using PEMDAS.

40 times zero is zero.

Then the final answer is 40.

because

zero times 40 is zero + 40

asked • 05/10/21This is both a math problem and an english problem. Mostly math though.

I believe the answer to be 40 because the pause in the sentence during the word after: So I read the equation as 0 * 40 + 40 = 40.

My friend is saying 0*40 but first you add 40 to Zero and then do 40*40 = 1600

I feel this is completely wrong and i would like to make sure that I have the write answer.
