There is only one possible way to read it and the answer is 9. [/quote] Shame on you, Germany. You confessed this was your second math thread; yet, you have learned nothing from your previous experience. [/quote] Wow, you posted the original expression and you don't even know the answer? You think it's not 9??? Order of operations means division is evaluated before multiplication. 6÷2(1+2) 3(1+2) 3(3) 9 I mean, you can even type it into google and it will tell you 9. What the heck is wrong with you people??? http://www.google.com/search?client=opera&rls=en&q=6%C3%B72(1%2B2)&sourceid=opera&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&channel=suggest [/quote] Google is reading the equation as (6/2)(1+2) Notice, the one I put is up: 6÷2(1+2) Now, I'm not a programmer, but I'll venture a guess as the script doesn't allow for equations of this magnitude to be processed correctly. Therefore, it's creating it's own version, one that exists within the parameters of its script. [/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 .
