It is nine. That's just 3 because 1 +2 1 +2 brackets. So we have: 6 ÷ 2 x 3 Multiplication and division is on a par in terms of priority calculations, because a division does not actually exist: a division by two is a multiplication by 1/2. A multiplication therefore has no priority for a division, as this is the case at a summation. 2 + 3 X 5 = 17. Given multiplication and division rank equally, they are just left to right. So first 6/2 gives 3 times 3 is 9 and that In order to get to 1 you should depart from that rule and that can only by EXTRA parentheses to insert: 6 ÷ (2 x 3) as one would give. [/quote] You didn't eliminate parentheses properly, Read the above post with 5 or so references to the proper way of doing math. [/quote] You do not apply your own rules properly, that is where your confusion comes from. [/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
