I hate math, but I really like food. I especially hate math problems that are hard about food and I end up not getting any real food. Plus, the answer I came up with is - Diabetes.

This McDonald's math problem has the Internet in a tizzy because people can't agree on what the final answer is. Look at the picture and see if you can figure it out. You not only have to figure out what the value of each food item is and then do the math for the final problem. What do you think the answer is?

Did you remember the order of operations?

Here's the correct answer.

  • The soda has a value of 10
  • The fries have a value of 1 for each (there are 4 orders in the third problem)
  • The burger has a value of 5

Order of operations says you multiply before addition. Therefore the answer is fries (1) times drink (10) plus burger (5). 1x10 = 10. 10+5 = 15
