John,
John, unless the skill testing question is for a contest related to health or medicine (standard body temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit), I would also suspect they want the answer 4.
Your email came through with a percentage sign in it:
11 (+) 44 (x) 2 () 10 % 25
So ignoring bedmas and interpreting "%" to mean take 25% of the value on the left, you get 100 % 25 which is 4. (As well, "%" in this particular case could be division, which coincidentally also gives 4).
I'm not sure how the "%" operator works in a calculator's order of operations. I really do wish that the designers of these socalled "skilltesting questions" had just a bit more skill themselves at arithmetic. The correct mathematical answer would always follow
bedmas.
