It seems to me that the answer is somewhat split between the simple folk and the math geeks. Ask anyone in the street and they will probably solve the question using left to right. where as ask anyone with some kind of higher education in math, and they will probably use the math parenthesis. Theres not a lot of point 'simplifying' the problem, the problem 'as is' done by a mathematician, using the common laws of math, will simply answer it as 1.

Who can tell me the highest number, that when written in the queens English, consists of only three words?

(IE 110 = one hundred and ten, 4 words)
