It's PEMDAS, or as we call it in Britain, BODMAS. When faced with big sums like this, you first deal with:
Brackets (Parenthesis) - if there any sums in brackets, do them first, then
Orders (Exponents) - ie. square roots, powers etc, then
Division and Multiplication, then finally
Addition and Subtraction.

So here, there are no brackets or orders so you skip straight to the multiplication, which is at the end. Only brackets can group things together. So, if the sum was
(2+2+2-2 etc.) x 0, the answer would be 0 - but there are no brackets here, so it's sequential, ie. each number adds/subtracts/multiplies ONLY the number next to it. So, as we deal with multiplication first, you go to the end and it's 0 x 2 (because the 2 is next to the 0), then you do the additions and subtractions. So:

2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2-2+2 x 0

First you multiply the 2 x 0 to get 0, so that gets cancelled out:
2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2-2+2 x 0

Then, you can see at the end that there's a '+2-2', (ie. 2-2) which again gives 0. Cancel that out too:
2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2 +2-2 +2 x 0

Finally, simply add up all the twos. There are 13 2s, so it's 26!

Quit thinking people are retarded for thinking it's zero; I did at first.
People assume that you multiply all the twos together, then multiply it by zero.
Whether or not there are parentheses, it's first instinct for most people when they see a "x0"
so quit whining and get over it; it's just a stupid Facebook question.

worst part is I think whoever made the poll was intending 0 to be the right answer, but didn't realize where he went wrong.
should have gone (2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2-2) * 0

but THAT would have been too obvious...

Here you go if you dont understand:

2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2-2+2x0=

Always multiply first!!!

2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2+2-2+0=

Then add and subtract, and keep in mind it is a minus there :P

=26

If you did get any other number, please redo primary school

Well, according to PEMDAS, you must multiply first. So you would multiply 0 and 2, then add the rest of the 2's, then subtract one. Equaling 26.

The funny thing is, I'm failing my math class right now..

2+2 =4
+2+2 = 8
+2+2 = 12
+2+2 = 16
+2+2 = 20
+2+2 = 24 +2 = 28
-2 = 24
+2= 28
x 0 = ZERO. Anything times ZERO = ZERO. Doesn't matter what the other ******* numbers are. if the last thing says "x0" That means it's ZERO. Dumb asses.
