What is Zero times Forty after you add Forty to it?

This 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.
