[quote:Anonymous Astrophysicist 1242316:MV8xNDczMDcwXzM1NjQ1OTQ4X0MyQTZGMEYx] The solution to the orignal question is easy and straighforward using basic rules established for solving such equations. When numbers are enclosed in parenthesis, this is the mathematical equivelevnt of saying the operation the the parentheseis must first be solved bfor one can continue. The result , since it is in parenthesis, must be multiplied by whatever modifier comes before or after it. using these basic rules the equation is solved as follows: 6/2(1+2)=X 6/2(3)=X 3(3)=9 X=9 Anyone who argues against this being the correct answer is simply an idiot. This is 5th or 6th grade stuff. [/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 .
