I know it's been a week since anyone's replied to this, but I need to bump this because an explanation is needed.

Order of operations suggests that you should deal with multiplication first. Meaning, get the 1 x 0 out of the way first and foremost. That leaves you with 1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1-1+1+1+1+1+1. Which equals 14. :biggrin3:

You can add as many "1s" as you want it won't change the answer - it is x zero and anything times zero is always zero!

That's not how math works... It only applies to the number directly before it.
