Very few people can solve this math problem without using a calculator

Since the beginning of time, people have always loved a good
brain teaser. We grew up reading Where’s Waldo? books and
putting together puzzles. Though highly frustrating at times,
we just can’t seem to resist a good riddle, challenging
crossword, or game of Sudoku.

The challenge below is one of my favorites!

It isn’t about some kind of impossible calculation, but about
honest old school math. This is probably why it is so fun to
take on these types of challenges, just trying to remember
the process brings in a little nostalgia while giving you a
sense of accomplishment at the same time.

Okay, to the challenge. Below we see a picture with a math
problem. Can you solve it without a calculator – what answer
will you come up with?

How was it? Take your time and concentrate! Below you will
see the correct answer.

Here is the solution

The answer is 104.

Why is 104 the correct answer? You might
ask.

For starters, we have to calculate the multiplication,
25 x 0, which becomes 0.

Then we have the number 50 + 50 – 0 + 2 + 2
which is 104.

So again, the answer is 104.
