ok, lets give it a try.
9 * 0 = 0
9 + 0= 9
9 + 9 = 18
18 + 0 = 18
18 + 0 = 18
18 + 9 = 27

27 is the final answer. That wasn't hard. Can I see the link? Also, have you reconsidered your departure from this planet =D?

CommanderDef Jan 15 2012, 12:07pm replied:

thank you, thank you... I'll reconsider

But it's in Czech and Slovak language, you won't understand how they send each other to first class, how one girl wrote her father is mathematician, etc.

You see imageshack, but I have a terrible feeling there was really the question and someone took out correct answers and left the rest to make this image.

CommanderDG Jan 15 2012, 12:30pm replied:

Rofl, I am dying of laughing right now. If I understood their reasoning properly they just multiplied all the term except the last one by zero. Oh man, this is amazing. Math and physics is universal, the language doens't matter really. Well, I have seen much worse so I have already lost faith in humanity anyways lol. Except there is no shuttle left to leave xD.

Sorry, I hope I am not offending anyone.

Offending? Their existence is offensive!!

shroomman Jan 15 2012, 2:25pm replied:

haha i like that comment best "0=0+9=9" so 0=9
this must be break threw in maths (finally scientists found out nine is equal to zero)

shroomman Jan 15 2012, 2:20pm replied:

9+0+9+0+ !9 x 0! +9 =

9+0+9+0+ !0! +9 =

9+9+9 = 9x3 = 27

You would have to put it like this to get out 9 as correct answer:

(9+0+9+0+9)x0 +9 = 9

but then again it would be other "problem"

But as most would start 9+0+9+0+9 = 27 .... and go on 27x0 = 0 ..... 0+9 = 9

forgetting maths has certain rules!!! (I followed this path 1st before I said to myself: stop! first 9x0)

FAIL! its 9.
9+0+9+0+9=27 Right?
well 27*0=0 Right?
0+9=9 WIN!

See the question is 9+0+9+0+9X0, the X is multiply, so you multiply then term you got before by zero, which in this case is 27. you get 0 and add the final 9. Therefore the answer is 9, not 27.

27

Headhunter128 Jan 15 2012, 12:08pm says:

Lol. My answer is 9 xD But I guess that is incorrect? :P

Kubisoft Jan 15 2012, 12:20pm says:

27...easy:)

megavin123 Jan 15 2012, 12:24pm says:

27 :P

Sanguinius Jan 15 2012, 12:27pm says:

multiplying always comes before + or -, so yeah answer is 27

FrikysKiller Jan 15 2012, 1:31pm says:

I hated maths back in school, and I`m probably wrong, but I think it`s 9.
Everything got multiplied by 0, so it`s only 0+9=9.
Or perhaps only that 9 got multiplied by 0, and then it would be 27, as stated before.
Maths are really boring.

shroomman Jan 15 2012, 2:27pm replied:

seems that maths isn't boring, only seems you not have any clue of it!

CommanderDG Jan 15 2012, 2:35pm replied:

Oh gawd, some people forget PEDMAS: "Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction"

There is no parentheses in the problem nor any exponents.
Thus following PEDMAS, Multiplication would be the first operation to start with. I.E.:
9+0+9+0+9*0+9=y
y being the result you are looking for.

---> 9+0+9+0+0+9=y
Remove the zero
---> 9+9+9=y
---> 27=y

This is not rocket science. This is 2nd grade arithmetic. Haters gonna hate....

CommanderDef Jan 15 2012, 3:47pm replied:

It is. So why we can easily find people who don't know it?

"Maths are really boring."

Headhunter128 Jan 15 2012, 3:55pm says:

Well, I was pretty much content with daydreaming in 2nd grade.. Lol

Now its tetris, but same result. Me + Math = Don't care. xD

CommanderDef Jan 15 2012, 4:24pm replied:

hmm, I have still problem with daydreaming, in all lessons. I have very wild fantasy and combined with sci-fi...

Headhunter128 Jan 16 2012, 2:31am replied:

Hehe. A very dangerous combination :P

CnC_Fin Jan 15 2012, 5:18pm says:

I got over 9000!!!

pandemic--hour Jan 15 2012, 5:30pm replied:

WHAT? 9000?!

{on topic, its 27}

hellodean Jan 15 2012, 6:52pm says:

hmm, i got 243.. i'll show my working

9+0+9+0+9x0+9=
i got rid of the zeros
9+0=9 +9=18 +0=18 +9=27 x 0+9=9
so
27x9=243

tho thinking about it, it would of had to of been written
9+0+9+0+9x(0+9)

am i correct in thinking the brackets make the difference?

CommanderDG Jan 15 2012, 7:20pm replied:

Never thought I would have to quote myself.
Yes the bracket make a difference but you still got it wrong, if there there would be brackets the answer would be 99.

hellodean Jan 16 2012, 12:30pm replied:

oh right yeah it would be 99, it would have to be

(9+0+9+0+9)x(0+9)

to get to 243

its been a while, i dont really get to do maths for anything anymore.. iv gotten seriously rusty

CommanderDG Jan 17 2012, 6:19am replied:

Ignore the second "there". I was distracted.

RC-XDDD Jan 15 2012, 7:19pm says:

27 yay

attackmike Jan 16 2012, 2:38am says:

im sure all those the people in that image was trolling...atleast i hope so

leiste Jan 16 2012, 5:26am says:

Should be 27.
9x0=0
+9
+9
+9
=27

Flash112 Jan 16 2012, 9:30am says:

27...awww yeahhh

]BlackPhoenix[ Jan 16 2012, 3:33pm says:

First comes multiplying.

Admiral-165 Jan 16 2012, 3:41pm says:

PEDMAS lol... we learned BEDMAS, which is the same except B is brackets... either way once it becomes a habit you just always do it...

attackmike Jan 17 2012, 7:59am says:

42

Galacticruler Mar 23 2012, 4:35am says:

its 9
all that x0 = 0+9=9

75shaddude May 2 2012, 7:42pm says:

using BEDMAS you get 27.
