is 60 + 60 x 0 + 1=61or1? I keep coming up with 61 but I don’t understand why if any # is x by 0 is 0?

60 + 60 x 0 + 1=

Answer 1

60 + 60 x 0 + 1

60+0+1=61

Answer 2

61 is correct due to order of operations: 60+(60×0)+1=0
As for why any number x 0 is 0: think of this:
lets say 4:
4 x 4 is 16
4 x 3 is 12
4 x 2 is 8
4 x 1 is 4
4 x 0 is 0
as you can see, you subtract 4 every time, so the solution being 0 just follows the pattern.
So if 1x=x
that means 0x=x-x=0

Answer 3

order of operations makes multiplication the first to be solved.
60+(60×0)+1=
60+0+1=61

It is 61.

Answer 4

61

0 x anything is 0

What you need to do of follow the saying Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally or pemdas for short. This means do math in this order: Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction….when doing this problem just follow these steps and since no parenthesis or exponents are there just skip them. So multiply first the 60×0 which is 0, so your new problem should be 60+0+1= which its 61…
