RonE (and repooc) is correct. Without parenthesis, the multiplication (and division if any) operations are performed first, addition and subtraction last. Zero trays of cookies times any number of cookies per tray is still zero cookies.

RonE's answer is still incorrect, but we'll forgive him since he recognized the lack of parenthesis means multiplication first.
