[quote:Forgotten:MV8xNDczMDcwXzM1NjUwMDU0X0Q3NjQ2Rjk2] [quote:Bent:MV8xNDczMDcwXzM1NjUwMDMzXzFGNUE1REIz] The divide symbol is represented by the slash (/). So replace the op divide symbol with a slash and do the problem. You get: 6/2(1+2) The 6 is the numerator (on top), and the denominator is 2(1+2) (on bottom) 6/6=1 [/quote] [quote:Forgotten:MV8xNDczMDcwXzM1NjUwMDMxX0YxNTQzQzlG] [quote:Forgotten:MV8xNDczMDcwXzM1NjQ5OTYwX0I0OURBNUY5] http://img255.imageshack.us/img255/1584/math3.png From Patrick's website. [/quote] Just tried 9 different online math problem sites. They all give the same answer.... 9 They must all be wrong. Answer has to be 1?

Apparently left to right is NOT part of the order of operations.... apparently you do not have to work left to right, as it should not matter... he also said the answer is 1... I found this as well... this guy is not my friend. [/quote] This "scientist" said he would accept both answers. Every program I put the equation into gives me the answer of 9. *shrug* I would argue that it is 6/2(1+2) 6/2 distribute into (1+2)= 9 [/quote] Until someone can show me a website that will do this and give an answer of 1, I am sticking with 9. http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/820/math2f.png/ I copied and pasted the equation into that math program and hit solve. Then I hit, show steps. 4 other programs give me an answer of 9. [/quote] [/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 .
