Mathematicians and physicists went nuts about it.
Mike Breen, the Public Awareness Officer for the American Mathematical Society, told Popular Mechanics: “The way it’s written, it’s ambiguous. In math, a lot of times there are ambiguities. Mathematicians try to make rules as precise as possible.”
Depending on where in the world you learned math, as Mashable reported, determines how you can solve the problem.
There is the PEMDAS method: the order of operations is Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction, typically from left to right.
There is also the BODMAS method: Brackets, Orders, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction.
So, the answer is 1.
The answer also is 16.

Presidential hopeful John Delaney made a feeble attempt at redemption on Wednesday, tweeting a retort to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s burn from almost 24 hours earlier.
The millionaire businessman and former Maryland congressman was “[murdered] on national television” by Warren on night one of the debates, according to Twitter users. After Delaney referred to “Medicare for All” as “fairy-tale economics,” Warren shot back.
