I suck at math but I think the answer is 20.



ETA-I am currently teaching myself math with khan academy :lol: I got 20 because I did multiplication first, and got 16+16+4-16, then I did addition so 32+4, 36 and then subtraction 36-16=20.

That was my answer too. I was always told the order of operations left to right: division/multiplication then addition/subtraction.



People are coming with with 320, 48, 240, 4, 56, 24 etc.... lol

Oh wow that's crazy!! I'm not great at math, but I did enjoy algebra for some strange reason. I liked finding the variables.

I go by GEMDAS. My math teacher my senior year taught me that. G for grouping... instead of P for parenthesis, since not everything grouped is technically in parenthesis :wink:

Some people use a B...for brackets, which are rarely ever used...I'd never heard of that until recently.



I like gemdas. I'm going to keep that one in mind.
