7 is 7

10(3x4) = 10 x 12 = 120

113 is 113

so 7-10(3x4)+113 = 7-120+113 = 0

Replace multiplications with "*".

Brackets
Exponents
Division or
Multiplication
Addition or
Subtraction

So..

Brackets first (3x4) = (12)
7-10x12+113

Multiplication:
10x12=120

Subtraction
7-120 = -113

Addition:
-113 + 113 = 0

Result:
0

Do people actually get these wrong?

or are you going to come up with some kind of stupid reason that 0 isn't the right answer?

I think you should find some of those type of problems actually,

"Is the following correct or incorrect? Explain"

1. Let a and b be equal non-zero quantities

a=b
2. Multiply through by a
a^2=ab

3. Subtract b^2

a^2-b^2=ab-b^2
4. Factor both sides
(a-b)(a+b)=b(a-b)

5. Divide out
a+b=b

6. Observing that a=b

b+b=b
7. Combine like terms on the left
2b=b

8. Divide by the non-zero b

2=1
