Using BIDMAS (Brackets, Indices, Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction)
You must multiply 10*0, and THEN add 10, which leaves you with 10.

Not true, brackets should be used to insist of precedence over the accepted order of modern mathematics, rather than be used to confuse matters, create additional notation and make equations less managable. BIDMAS is rigorous mathematics.

It is BIDMAS itself which allows brackets to take precedence, how can you say it is unnecessary if the brackets only work if you assume BIDMAS?

Regardless, modern mathematics states that 10 + 10 * 0 = 10

Why is it "bolox"?

bodmas is ****

does need brackets

doesn't.
order of operations

i f you follow bodmas, which is bolox as previously stated

it's completely unnecessary if you just use brackets.

10 by bodmas - BUT as this is a 'simple' sum (ie with less than two signs) then the answer can be obtained by working through from L to R - so the correct answer is 10, but an accepted answer would also be 0 :)

The answer is........

Surely for that to be the answer the second part would need to be separated like:

10 + (10 x 0) = 10

...or am I still wrong?! :|

its 10 (_;)

Only if you do it as 10+10 =20 x 0 does it then equal 0

not necessary apparently

doesn't need brackets

It's funny. I'm laughing.

Depends if you are an account or not.
