Joke is on me, I was wrong. Thanks for your work. If you have anything else on the obelus, post it here. [/quote] I have already, and of course, I was told I was retarded, etc etc. [/quote] I am surprised you accept the obelus as the deal breaker, and not the identity property. a / 1a = 1. This is not disputable. Even ask your PhD friend about that. the 1 is there whether you write it or not. Anyone who knows math knows this. Therefore a/a is always 1, and a/1a is always 1. Therefore a/2a MUST be 1/2, and 6/2a is 3/a, and a = 2+1 so 6/2(2+1) = 3/(2+1). The identity law is something we all can read, and accept. For me, that was deal breaker, along with fractional coefficients written with a '/' all use ( ) as well. [/quote] I understand, but the original equation was written with an obelus, NOT a solidus...

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 .
