 Perhaps you ladies may wish to revisit your answers.

7+7 = 14 divided by 7 = 2 + 7 = 9 9 x 7 = 63 - take away 7 = 56

 7 + ( 7 / 7 ) + ( 7 x 7 ) - 7 =  50

7   +      1       +     49   -  7   =  50

       8            +     49   -   7   =  50

                 57          - 7        =   50  

                                           50 = 50

In mathematics and computer programming, the order of operations (sometimes called operator precedence) is a rule used to clarify which procedures should be performed first in a given mathematical expression.

7+(7/7)+(7X7)-7=

7+ 1 + 49 -7=

87= 50

I just did this on facebook, even showing my work, the correct answer is D: 56

Glad to see so many of you participated in this.  Unfortunately, FB does not tend to provide the correct answers and we are divided between C and D.  I will consult my mathemeticians in the family to confirm, but pretty sure it is C.
