Anyone who argues against this being the correct answer is simply an idiot. This is 5th or 6th grade stuff.

There is NO POSSIBLE CORRECT ANSWER BESIDES 9

You're fucking idiot because there are no variables in the equation. Please stay in canada, we already have our share of retards

I find this rather ironic. Anyway, go back and read about the last 7 pages.

So it's 1 right?

Obviously you don't need to know advanced mathematics, although this "geometry-like" image to be honest made me understand it even better.

Really?

Try to put outside the 2 value from its own single parenthesis out the whole one.

6/((2)¹+(2)²) = x

what do you get?

Which proves that first you do the denominator's (or numerator's or both) calculations and then proceed with the rest. If not, then seems my teachers/instructors were more than just a-holes...

The brackets give not only priority to 1+2, but also to the multiplication bound to the bracketed expression, so it's 6/6=1.

At least that's how we do it here... and I suppose math rules are international.

Talked to my friend... Apparently left to right is NOT part of the order of operations.... apparently you do not have to work left to right, as it should not matter... he also said the answer is 1...

I found this as well... this guy is not my friend.

Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31557420

This "scientist" said he would accept both answers. Every program I put the equation into gives me the answer of 9.

*shrug*

I would argue that it is 6/2(1+2) 6/2 distribute into (1+2)= 9

I copied and pasted the equation into that math program and hit solve. Then I hit, show steps.

4 other programs give me an answer of 9.

Fix the equation above.

When I clicked the link it is saying 6/2(1X2)

Fix teh equation above it. It gives 9.

Website you posted definately shows 9 as answer.

Can anyone give me a website that will show how to work the problem that comes up with 1?

Anyone?

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
The divide symbol is represented by the slash (/).

So replace the op divide symbol with a slash and do the problem.

You get:

6/2(1+2)

The 6 is the numerator (on top), and the denominator is 2(1+2) (on bottom)

6/6=1

I have not searched any online calcs again yet, but here is why I say 1.

6÷2(1+2)
6÷2(3)
6÷6 = 1
Or
6÷2(1+2)
distribute 2(1+2) = 2+4 = 6
6÷6 = 1

Now I understand some will argue you should not distribute first. But according to those using their pedmas that is p, right? Oh, order of ops, lol.
