Math puzzle
posted by Fran on .
how would you go about solving this ive tryed everything.
2*2+7*3+4*3+3+4+3*2=?
231 is incorrect ty for tryin Ruby still need answer please n e 1

It's impossible to solve this problem without the use of parentheses.
For instance, 2 times 2 plus 7?
(2 * 2) + 7 = 11
or
2 * (2 + 7) = 18 
it didn't show any parentheses

2•2=4, 7•3=21, 4•3=12, 3•2=6 ... 4+21=25, 25+12= 37, 37+3= 40, 40+4=44, 44+6= 50... I'm no math genius but I hope that I helped, the answer is 50.

i tryed that answer and it wasn't right either im stumped ty though

Ask your teacher to clarify this problem with parentheses.

This looks to me a mathematical expression, and not a puzzle.
It should come straight from the calculator as 50.
2*2+7*3+4*3+3+4+3*2
=4+21+12+3+4+6
=50
Ruby took the "*" sign as an exponential operator. I took it as multiplication, and we need to respect the order of operations, namely multiplication and division before addition and subtraction. 
The Answer you seek is "bridge" it is asking you to use the old style od texting on a standerd cell phone(no key board) 2 (2 times)= B Etc. Etc,
