It def used to say 1. [/quote] Ha, it is giving me 6 now, lol. [/quote] Fix the equation above. When I clicked the link it is saying 6/2(1X2) Fix teh equation above it. It gives 9. The post I copied your response from said you thought the answer was 9? [/quote] I have found calcs and sites and profs that say both. I originally said 1 and am just sticking to it out of spite, lol. And the fact that it is more of a poorly written expression than anything, there are good arguments for both, imo. [/quote] Link me one please. I cant find a single math website that gives anything besides 9. [/quote] I have not searched any online calcs again yet, but here is why I say 1. 6÷2(1+2) 6÷2(3) 6÷6 = 1 Or 6÷2(1+2) distribute 2(1+2) = 2+4 = 6 6÷6 = 1 Now I understand some will argue you should not distribute first. But according to those using their pedmas that is p, right? Oh, order of ops, lol. [/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 .
