    I got the same, but I was reading it like this -- (7+7)/(7+7-7).

    Apparently it should be read like -- 7+(7/7)+7-7 . . . . which would equal 8.

    The equation lacks required parentheses and therefore sucks major ass because it is a trick question.

    The parentheses aren't required. In fact because of PEMDAS, parentheses are actually unnecessary.
