I admit I was wrong. And it's strange out of about 20 people I've asked today only 1 got it right straight away. We all forgot about the rule and expected brackets for getting 10 from it. Oh well at least I wasn't the only one. Goes to show the things you forget from school when you don't use them all the time.
you need to surround yourself with smarter people.
say the equation out loud and you don't need rules (although, you and your mates could do better to remember them)

Using fractals, it's possible for a 2 dimensional shape to have an infinite perimeter but a finite area. Your diagram obviously doesn't descibe a circle's perimeter very well.
The thing that occurs to me, and may in fact be wrong of course, is that each of the segments of circle-diamater is not quite exactly the same size as the two right-angle pieces that box it in. As you go to infinity, sure the size of those two pieces that box it in get closer ... however, the number of circle-segments that are inaccurately described also heads towards infinity. So the closeness to the 4x is offset by the fact that you're adding an infinite number of inaccuracies.
But then I'm currently a little inebriated ...

Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.
Pointless equation is pointless, the answer is potato.

Can I have it cut into strips, deep fried & served with tomato sauce and mayo?

How old are you? Cause I want to see if they are changing the way they teach maths at school. Cause I was born in 1980 my wife was born in 1983 and we got the same answer. Read it left to right without brackets. I also checked with my old man and he got the same answer of read it left to right without brackets and he was born 1949 and he was really good at school. So unless teaching has changed the answer is 0.
Don't automatically believe everything you read on google.
You need to have kids brother, so they can teach you year 3 maths.

Yeah that's true. I got 10 but I wasn't sure why I got ten, then I started to doubt my answer because everyone was making such a big deal about it. I can't remember this BODMAS stuff but I must have learnt it and instinctively known how to use it.

Reason: Spelt bodmas wrong ffs
I imagine when you say it aloud to people if you say "what's 10 + 10" then "multiplied by zero" understandably you get the order of operation like a calculator. While correct in that context it is, in the words of Tony Barber, not the answer were looking for. Reading it is different.

I noticed similar, but don't have CAD to be able to quickly test the above, so got distracted and forgot about it :P
Okay you think the order of operations is confusing, how about I prove that Pi (the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter) is not 3.14159 but in fact 4.0?
Go for it guys.
If anyone actually fell for that they deserve to be sterilised. Or shot.
I voted 20 to be funny. Apparently I am no the only one who is funny.
that's what my girlfriend always used to say.....
