Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
Why is this thread still around lol

Dear Aunt Sally isnt hard to follow

6/2(1+2)
6/2*3
3*3 = 9

Done.

The thread won't die because people like you still don't understand how to do math, and we are trying to help you understand Distributing and Factoring. We are not trying to be "right" but rather point you in the right direction so you can see for yourself.
Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32057798

Obviously, you dont understand the distributive property.

You only use it when what inside the parenthesis cant be combined.

You do parantheses FIRST.

If it was (2+x). THEN YOU COULD USE IT.

You clearly dont understand factoring either!

You use it when what is inside the parentheses cant be combined.

I dont think you know the difference of an integer and a nomial either.

If it was (3x + 3y) you could factor.

....you need to go back to school!!!

You almost had it. After parenth you are supposed to move left to right.

You solved 2*3 first, but instead you should have done 6/2 first.

Then you would have been left with 3(3) which is 9.

Because you are using a 9 yr old's math skills.
I told you how to get the answer. Distribute the 2 into the parentheses as all the references say to do. If you want to ignore proper procedures, then you may remain ignorant and a half-wit at your own doing. Have fun with that.

Do they teach factoring anymore? I know they stopped preaching that children have to memorize times tables... I guess they started omitting other math basics in schools too. I guess it really isn;t your fault you get 9. However, it IS your fault if you don't want to learn why it is 1.

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 NOT a trick question, and there is only 1 correct answer.

All tools used for computation are fair game.

(Yes, I saw this somewhere else and decided to post it here.)

Some people are just to stupid. Obviously it is pointless trying to explain it to you. If you can't work out that this is 6 ÷ 0.666666666666 and not 6 / 6 then your better off believing the 911 and Sandy Hook story then questioning it cause there is no telling what you would do when you found out the real answer.

How do we come to a concensus? What "expert" would be honored by both sides?

How about we take a vote?

Me? no math degree. I got an A in college algebra, and averaged 3.5 in 8 hours of college chemistry which is like a workshop for algebra. So..11 university hours of algebra work with nearly 4.0 and I say it's ONE.
