[quote:Anonymous Coward 32057798:MV8xNDczMDcwXzM1NTc3NDg1XzczNDc5MEU2] [quote:Anonymous Coward 31519086:MV8xNDczMDcwXzM1NTc3Mjc3XzFFNUM5MUI3] what it comes down to is that some people say that the expression is the same as (6 ÷ 2) * (1+2) and some people say that it means 6 ÷ (2 * (1+2)) BUT WHICH ONE IS CORRECT???? [/quote] It means 6 ÷ (2 * (1+2)) This is proven with Distribution Property. Therefore, the parentheses are not required and the initial equation is written 6 ÷ 2(2+1). Leading fractions absolutely require parentheses as in the example (1/2)n below. Also proven with common notation, ie,: 1/2n = 1/(2n) 0.5n = (1/2)n or simply n/2 [/quote]
Alright, there's a lot of self-proclaimed experts around these parts. Let's see how your logic holds up against some basic mathematics.
6÷2(1+2) = ?
I'll give two hints. This is
a trick question, and there is only
All tools used for computation are fair game.
(Yes, I saw this somewhere else and decided to post it here.)
Best of luck to all you geniuses .
