There are two tricks to this one. The first is 1 × 0. But it’s mostly there as a distraction. Yes, 1 × 0 is 0, but that doesn’t affect anything else in the equation. The second, far trickier element is that the lines ending with 1 don’t have a + sign next to them. That means they should be combined with the following line.

Let’s put the equation all on one line, shall we?

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 1 × 0 + 1 = ?

And the answer to that equation is 30.

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 1 + 1 × 0 + 1 =?1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + (1 x 0) + 1 =?

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 0 + 1 = ?

Did you have a good New Year's Eve? I stayed home and kept the pups company. A nice quiet start to what i suspect is going to be a busy year.

Well done!!! Yes, we had a good New Year. Like you we stayed home and make sure that all the dogs and cats were not scared with the loud fireworks going on picture be at midnight. So we put them all in the house and it turned up the stereo so they couldn't hear. The loud noises and didn't get too scared. Thanks so much for your participation in the riddles and brainteasers and my will continue to post them to hopefully give all use guys a bit of fun. We wish you a happy New Year and a very safe holiday period for you. Sorry I haven't been on lying to much recently due to the chemo but I am slowly getting on top of the Parkinsons as much as I can expect.
I really hate the AutoCorrect feature and I should check my comments before I post them.
