    The answer to your question would be 2. Unless I'm missing something somewhere.

    The answer is 0. If you multiply any number by 0 it's always going to be 0.

      Haha yeah, it can be a tricky question but I guess I was just a math person in school lol.

    assuming the x is a multiplication sign, then its 1.

    1 + 1 -1 + (1X0) =
    1+ 1 - 1 +0 =
    2 - 1 =
    1

    I guess there's a lot of right side of the brain people here on hubpages :p

      It's funny how adults can forget things they learned way back in elementary school, like the Order of Operations.  Well, use it or lose it I suppose!

    This type problem has simple rule to solve, ie BDMAS rule, did you know what is it?
    Bracket
    Division
    Multiplication
    Addition
    Subtraction
    Now try to solve answer should be like this way,
    1+1-1+1x0
    Here is no Bracket, Division,next priority goes to Multiplication
    So, 1+1-1+'1x0'
    1+1-1+0
    Next priority goes to Addition
    So, '1+1'-'1+0'
    ie,2-1=1
    Hence the answer is "one and only     1".
    If you are not following this BDMAS rule, you get different answer based on the priority you give. So here we can see lot of answers.

      Multiplication and division have equal priority and are done in the order given.  Addition and subraction have the next lowest priority, equally, and are done in the order given.  Thus, in 1+1-1+0 you do not bracket the additions to do first.

      Yes, you are very correct calculus-geometry, Actually I try to solve this problem through step by step process, so that anyone can understand easily, and why different get different answer. You are telling is what the correct mathematics. Thank you..
