[quote:fisherman:MV8xNDczMDcwXzMzMDUxODM3XzFCMTE3OTUw] The order of operations is the order in which all algebraic expressions should be simplified. Oftentimes, the meaning of a complex expression changes depending upon the order in which it is calculated. The order of operations is: Parentheses Exponents (and Roots) Multiplication & Division Addition & Subtraction This means that expressions within parentheses are evaluated first, then exponents (including roots, i.e. radicals), then multiplication and division (at the same level), and finally addition and subtraction (at the same level). If there are multiple operations at the same level on the order of operations, move [b][u]from left to right[/u][/b].Whichever mnemonic you use, be aware that multiplication does not always come before division 1) 1+2=3 2) 6:2=3 3) 3x3=9 6 ÷ 2 (1 +2) = 9 :tounge: [/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 .
