Quoting: 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 Bent Just tried 9 different online math problem sites.

I cant find a single math website that gives anything besides 9. Forgotten 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. Last Edited by Patrick Bateman on 01/18/2013 09:04 AM |
