Today on LinkedIn, I saw this:

Here’s my (correctly formatted) answers:

The following assumes:

- + is the arithmetic addition operator
- x is the arithmetic multiplication operator
- Standard order of operations: multiplication takes precedence

Given no line has operators joining them, an answer (in decimal) is:

- Line 1: 5
- Line 2: 5
- Line 3: 2

However, if one were to concatenate the lines (assuming whitespace is ignored), this gives:

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 11 + 1 x 0 + 1

Since there is no indication of which base is used, here are some answers:

- binary: 1110
- octal: 33
- decimal: 35
- hexadecimal: 2A

Yeah, I kind of geeked out on this…
