Posted on Dec 16, 2016

Let's see how much you were paying attention in math class. This basic math problem can give someone a headache, but don't worry if you don't get the answer, we will explain how it's done.

## 1. Here It Is

## 2. So 3 - 3 = 0, 0 X 6 = 0 and Then 0 + 2 = 2, Right?

## 3. Nope!

You missed something important!

## 4. Wait, What?

Remember your math lessons!

## 5. You Have Some Rules, and You Need to Start with Multiplications and Divisions First!

## 6. When You're Done with That, You Can Add and Subtract. Give It One More Try

## 7. First You Have to Multiply 3 and 6, and You Will Get 3 - 18 + 2

## 8. So, 3 - 18 Is -15, And -15 + 2 Is -13!

So, the answer is -13! Did you get it right on the first try?
