Don't work this one out 0*0+0/1 ...

Stop ... do not do it, do not write down the answer.

It is 0, that is not the point - social media friends often fall for these calculation memes. Where operator precedence (knowing that multiplication and division, has priority over addition and subtraction) is used to catch souls out and also what happens when you multiply or divide by zero.

So - please, please, and another PLEASE ignore them - partly as these are designed to expose mathematical inadequacies and we can all fall for these, the same as we can for grammar errors. Also - they are tedious, please stop filling my timeline with this tosh.

Tip 1: if there is a zero in the mathematical expression chances are it will do something to the result.

Tip 2: if there are two expressions, such as divide and subtract or multiply and add in the same calculation - stop and think for a moment.
