Keep it up, and let us know in the comments if we’ve figured you out!

WRONG!

WRONG!

The only equation is the last line:

1 + 1 x 0 + 1 = 2

There are no operator symbols at the end of each line, so there’s no reason to assume that they are part of the equation. Moreover, there are no equal signs at the end of the first two lines so they are not equations, they are expressions!
