[b]2(1+2) = 2 x (1+2)[/b] [/quote] That does NOT exempt you from applying distribution OR removing parentheses first. Has NO ONE seen ANY of these references??!?!?!? Distribute BEFORE "pedmas" used to REMOVE parentheses too: http://www.algebra.com/algebra/homework/word/Linear_Equations_And_Systems_Word_Problems.faq.question.49847.html Get Rid of parentheses with Distribution: http://www.helpalgebra.com/articles/gettingridofparentheses.htm If there is some factor multiplying the parentheses, then the only way to get rid of the parentheses is to multiply using the distributive law. http://www.jamesbrennan.org/algebra/intro%20to%20algebra/simplifying_algebraic_expression.htm "When simplifying expressions with parentheses, you will be applying the Distributive Property." -purplemath [/quote] The factor multiplaying the paranthesis is 3. [b] [b]6 ÷ 2 x (1+2)[/b] = 3 x (1+2) = 3 x (1) + 3 x (2) = 9[/b] [/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 .
