    I had the same result as Alfie but was tols that I was wrong.

    This is my chat with so say correct answer

    The answer is -287

    I also got it wrong



    he'swrong laz



    the two rows of lollies might - 1



    Well the guy was live and went through it, he also said several mathematicians had checked it out and -287 was correct



    minus?



    Yes. One guy put his answer as -287 OR 131, he said he had workings for both answers and both were correct, my answer was 131



    i know my answer is correct too



    it is i checked



    Put it up on FB gaz



    no u lol



    I will send you another one tomorrow



    i hope the guy that did the next one can count



    it must have been all about cancellations



    No gaz it’s about getting the correct values for the symbols and then doing the Math last.



    i did that ...duh



    that's how i know i got it right



    Anyway will send you his next one tomorrow he does one per day answer will be 7pm tomorrow evening



    I agree there could be several answers for each one



    i'll do it pen on paper

    Took me about 5 minutes to solve, I think it was quite easy,just a matter of working values out then deciding whether to multiply first or not (bodmas) rules ..
