1+1+1+1+1

1+1+1+1+1

1+1*0+1=?

1st way I get 12     1*0+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1=12

2nd way I get 11      break it down to 3 sets so 5+5+1=11

3rd way I get 1         stright line add each before the multiplication then multiply the zero add the last 1=1

1st way is the correct way.

First you should find multiplication than addition

As per the BODMAS rules (Bracket than Power of than Division than Multiplication than addition than subtraction) 

Only first way fall into this BODMAS rule.

Hence correct answer will be 12.
