It could be 9 Xs, or it is Null. That I am sure of, just not sure which one.

The answer is 9. We have checked work on every variable in the equation. Multiple times. Check the last 3 pages or so.

The only answer that works is 9.

You are confusing yourself. (1+2) does NOT belong in the denominator when you write that in fraction form. This is why you guys are getting 3/3=1 instead of 3^2=9.

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
just forget about the PEMDAS or BODMAS rules,

flash back to the origin of mathematics which was used to solving human's "problems":

Assumption: Have 6 things to share, with 2 groups where theres a combination of 2 boys and 1 girl per group.

So, each of them how many things gets?

2 boys and 1 girl = 3 persons per group (2 group) so 6 persons each.

Now, only 6 things. 6 apples for 6 students.

Therefore, each student only gets 1 thing

= 1 its the answer.

Period.

Wrong! OMFG. a/1a would allow a to be any number!

4/1 x 4 = 16

2/1 x 2 = 4

a/1a is not a math equation. There is no equal symbol.

WTF are people really this stupid?

Same thing for 6/2a. A could be anything.

6/2 x 4 = 12

6/2 X 1 = 3

6/2 x 10 = 30

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
makes no sense in being 9.
this is just a simple cauculation, not some equation to find a misterious 'x' or somethin. so adding 9 at the end and then try to see if matches doesnt work. ur just changing the whole thing.
just think about it. see the problem. how in the world can '6' divided by '2 times 1+2' be equal to NIIINE!??

So So wrong.

6 ÷ 2n = 3/n

You guys and your stupid calculators have programmed your brains to robotically apply Order of Ops, and convert everything to operators.

What is 6 divided by 2 n's ? 6 ÷ 2n
What is 6 divided by 2, times n? 6 ÷ 2 * n

They are not the same.

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
How do you derive the equation?

6 ÷ 6 = 1
6 ÷ (4+2) = 1
6 ÷ 2(2+1) = 1 This step is simple factoring. 2 is the GCF (greatest common factor for the laymen). When you factor, you divided it out of both TERMS inside the parentheses. It is ALWAYS a part of both those terms. You just can't divide some of the term without the rest...

Not enough in that equation.

"A" could be anything.

If it was 1, the answer would be 1.

If it was 2 the answer would be different still. Same with 3, 4, 5.

Like you have been wrong in this thread. I already told Ducm900 I would not do any more math problems. Scroll up.

But yes, that equation is way more advanced than the original here. But still not to difficult.

You cant even work the equation here, so why are you challenging anyone else?

Edit: And according to you we are already wrong on this equation. So if we cant work this equation we cant work that one. We are "already wrong" here. So why would I worry about being wrong in that equation if I am wrong here.

Oh yea, you are trolling that is why. You know the answer is 9. Or you would not have to worry about us being "wrong" in that picture.
