During the November 15 episode of ABS-CBN's It's Showtime, a question was given under the category of Math which was 1000 - 500 x 2 = ? What's the correct answer?

MANILA, PHILIPPINES -- A controversial video was uploaded by a Facebook user named Chris Cabardo presenting a segment of It's Showtime's contest 'Isang Tanong Isang Milyon' where a question was given under Math category and the contestant apparently gave the wrong answer but the noontime show declared that it was correct.

The equation given was

In Mathematics, there is a so called "order of operations" or most likely well known as PEMDAS (Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition, and Subtraction) rule.

The Facebook video is currently shared over a thousand times and continuously growing. One of the commenters solved the given Math problem using the PEMDAS rule:

1000 - 500 x 2
- is the same as
1000 - (500 x 2)

Computation 1000 - 1000 = 0

Here's the clip where the noontime show apparently agreed to the wrong answer given by the contestant. This segment was hosted by Vhong, Billy and Vice Ganda.

If you were asked to solve the same equation, what would be your answer?
