Problem 42296. String math

You will be given a string that describes a simple math equation. Your job is to determine if the value of the equation is equal to the number of letters in the string, not including spaces. Multiplication and division come before addition and subtraction when calculating the equation, just like in real life. For example:

'four plus eight' has thirteen non-space characters, but 4+8=12, so this would return false.

'eight plus six times two' has twenty non-space characters. 8+6*2=20, so this would return a true.

Only the numbers 0-9 will be included in this exercise. Operational terms are

  • plus
  • minus
  • times
  • multiplied by
  • divided by

Good luck!
