Re: 4X4+4X4+4-4X4=
she says 320 cause "Thats what the calculator says", but I'm guessing basic calculators don't use the order of operations rule.

They do, but the equation is poorly written by someone intentionally attempting to make a mess of mathematical syntax so the calculator will be wrong. They're not foolproof.

(4X4)+(4X4) + (4-(4X4))=

(16 + 16 ) + ( -12) =

32 + -12= 20

But if this was apples it would be totally different

Why the hell do you 2 need a calculator for that?

Even doing it the wrong way doesn't need one.

Brackets are not needed.
Order of operators (taught in 5th grade)

My 11 year old daughter and her friend both got 20, hope the rest of you are embarassed!

4 x 4 + 4 x 4 + 4 - 4 x 4

16 + 16 + 4 - 16 = 20

Would love to put money on this, I could use the cash! Anyone?? Anyone??
