Exact sciences are a passion for many people, while others go as far as possible with anything to do with mathematics, physics or chemistry. Today, we prepared a file **Math Challenge** And its task is relatively complex, you just need to solve the equation. So get ready, pay close attention and good luck!

### Math Challenge

This challenge is tough, but the feeling of victory is worth it, so try to be part of the 2% of people who get it right. In general, math puzzles require strong analytical skills, high IQ, knowledge of mathematical concepts, and good arithmetic skills.

The image below contains an equation and you should find the answer. Do not forget to pay attention to the number of numbers and the order in which the arithmetic operations must be solved. Without further ado, it’s time to solve the challenge!

what’s up? Did you manage to answer? Let’s start with the math and if you haven’t found the answer yet, you can try again by following step by step. To solve this equation, the most important thing is to follow the correct order in which the operations must be performed.

So, it is correct to apply it to a rule called BODMAS, which means that you need to solve the equations as follows: the first B – in parentheses; then O – order of forces or roots; shortly after D – division; in the sequence M – multiplication; continue with A – addition and; Finally, S – subtraction.

So, you first have to multiply 1 x 0 by the third row, which gives you 0. This way, you will get the following equation:

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1

1 + 0 + 1

Now, before you start adding all the ones, note that the last 1 of the first row, as well as the second row, don’t have any practical sign next to them. So, you should assume that the last 1 on the first line and the first 1 on the second line are 11, so you’ll have this equation: 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11.

Moving on, you now have 1 + 1 + 1 on the second line and again 1 at the end of the second line with no operations next to it. So you must again assume that the last 1 of the second row and the first of the third row are 11.

After doing that, you have the following equation: 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 0 + 1, which equals 30! Did you manage to continue? Did you get the correct answer? We hope so! Keep doing this type of exercise to improve your cognition and become smarter!

### Basic mathematics and the importance of this type of activity

This is a challenge that involves basic arithmetic, and a lot of people today struggle to understand it. If you live with kids at home, this type of challenge can be a way to get them to practice what they learn at school.
