[quote:Anonymous Coward 32057798:MV8xNDczMDcwXzM1NTcwMTEyX0E3RkQ0NDVF] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1428208:MV8xNDczMDcwXzM1NTcwMDgzX0ZBQTVCNg==] parentheses first, then solve left to right... 9 [/quote] Yes, but you didn't do step 1. So before anyone else says "Wrong" you may want to actually read something and educate yourself, and then prove ALL of the following references incorrect. See below: --------------------------- http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Basic_Algebra/Working_with_Numbers/Distributive_Property "We use the distributive property to help us find a way around the order of operations while still being sure that we keep the value of the expression." Distribute to REMOVE parentheses 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 These guys got it right, they use "Parentheses" in the order of operations to require Distributive Property. Ref: Purplemath The Distributive Property in ALgebra: The Distributive Property is handy to help you get rid of parentheses. a(b + c) = ab + ac http://math.about.com/od/algebra/a/distributive.htm [/quote] [/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 .
