[quote:Anonymous Coward 29929401:MV8xNDczMDcwXzM1MDUxMzQ0X0EyREM2NEY2] [quote:Anonymous Coward 6756538:MV8xNDczMDcwXzM1MDUxMDgxXzdDNDU2MTJD] You all fail: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distributivity Law of distribution, you need to know more then basic pemdas to do anything in life yo's... whenever you have multiplication of terms being added you must multiply each term by the multiplicand, i.e. 2(1+2) = (2*1 + 2*2) = (2+4) = 6 so 6/2(1+2) 6/(2*1 + 2*2) 6/(2 + 4) 6/6 1 [b]IT'S 1[/b] [/quote] But you are assuming it's a mathematical distribution problem, giving a potentially a wrong answer. The answer is conditional upon operator precedence rules applied - and without explicit operator precedence specification, then the result is ambiguous and non-deterministic. [/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 .
