The answers to the trivia question are 10 and 2. The first important function that everyone forget’s about is the “order of operations” which is “Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction”. Since the introduction of modern algebraic notation, multiplication has taken precedence over addition. Thus (Answer 1 ) 4 + 3 × 2 = 3 × 2 + 4 = **10**. The second function overlooked is “Multiplying Negatives Makes a Positive” 3 x 2 x -4 x -4 = **96** and (Answer 2 ) -4 + 3 x 2 = 3 x 2 = 6 + -4 = **2**! Thanks for Playing Please share!
