If the * is multiplication, you do that first by Order of Operation (exponents, multiplication and division, addition and subtraction)
So multiplying 5 times 0 gives you zero.
That leaves you with
5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 5 + 5 - 5 + 0
15 - 5 + 5 + 5 - 5
10 + 5 + 5 - 5
15 + 5 - 5
20 - 5

Assuming the * symbol represents multiplication, using PEMDAS the answer will be fifteen.

I assume the " * " means times

15, Order of Operations. PEMDAS. Paranthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Add, Subtract.

Any number multiplied by 0 = 0

Check out the top opinion :)" u will get the right answer lol:-

oops... counted wrong. five pluses, two minuses, one zero for a sum of fifteen.

The * zero at the end automatically cancels everything before it.
• marley marley 2012/07/29 04:36:51
But now I think the "Top Opinion" is right. There was more to it than what it looked like!
• junna marley 2012/07/29 04:36:57
How?? do multplycation first nd then addition
• marley junna 2012/07/29 05:17:16
I'm so confused.
• junna marley 2012/07/29 05:23:04
its 15 ...you are right "Top Opinion" is righ

I thought I saw parenthesis. I'm so blind. :l It's 15. (5+5+5-5+5+5-5+5)*0=0

Anything multiplied by zero is zero isn't it?
• junna RachelA7X 2012/07/29 04:35:02
Itz but should be done at first and then go for addition :)"

I was taught old school math. Have no idea what * means. I do know 8 x 5 is 40, but like I said, old school.
I'll take old school math any day.

The associated rule is left to right so the correct answer is ZERO
You should consider the mathemticl operations first ie divition,then multiplctn then addtn,subrctn..lol:-

Yes, hurts the eyes, lol
I don't remember what the "associated rule" is, but I think you might be right instead, and this is what I thought too. I thought that you would normally go left to right unless exponents and parentheses were involved. Is this the associated rule? I Can't remember, it's been too long.
you remember correctly . . .
You'd get 15 if you went from right to left as well.

I thought * was multiply. Oh well:((
• junna Chaya2010 2012/07/28 15:10:05
* means multply... ie; you do that first by 'Order of Operation' (exponents, multiplication and division, addition and subtraction) So multiply 5 times 0 gives you zero. That leaves you with 5+5+5-5+5+5-5+0=15
• Chaya2010 junna 2012/07/28 15:14:01
Thank you. I've learned something, thanks!!
• gaylehelen Chaya2010 2012/07/28 16:01:25
I had no idea. Old school math for me. * means an asterisk to me.
