I fucking hate it when people say this problem always equals 0.


No it's not, dumbass. Order of Operations states that multiplication comes before addition, so really the answer is still 13. You learned that in fucking junior high.

Actually, then I noticed that it's not 13 either, because there's a subtraction symbol hidden in there, so really it would add up to 10 - 5, which would be 5.

Goddamn this makes me so fucking mad. And you know what's even more pathetic? I suck absolute dick at math, and yet I'm totally schooling these dipshits right now.

Addition and subtraction are done at the same time. So depending on personal preference its either 13 or 5.

Technically according to the overlord, the answer is still 13 because you go from left to right counting addition and subtraction equally.
