Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
It is such a conspiracy in the world that not a SINGLE math site will give you the answer 1.

You cant find a single one. They all must be wrong and the few people here that say 1 must be right?

EVERY MATH SITE IS WRONG? Is that really what Casper, DUCM, etc are saying? Every single site?

If someone can show me 1 math website that comes up with 1 I will agree. Even though I can show 10+ websites with 9.

I just need 1. One website.

Solve any multiplication and division in the problem. Note that multiplication does not precede division, this is a common mistake while the fact is that they are solved from left to right as they occur.

Example:

5 * 4 - 9 / 3
5 * 4 - 9 / 3
20 - 9 / 3
20 - 9 / 3
20 - 3
Quoting: Article

This tells you the ranks of the operations: Parentheses outrank exponents, which outrank multiplication and division (but multiplication and division are at the same rank), and these two outrank addition and subtraction (which are together on the bottom rank). When you have a bunch of operations of the same rank, you just operate from left to right. For instance, 15 ÷ 3 × 4 is not 15 ÷ 12, but is rather 5 × 4, because, going from left to right, you get to the division first.
Quoting: Article

When children initially learn addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, they begin by performing operations on two numbers. But what happens when an expression requires multiple operations? Over time, mathematicians have developed a set of rules called the order of operations to determine which operation to do first. The rules are:

Multiply and divide from left to right.
Add and subtract from left to right.
Quoting: Article

I can show about 50+ more sites that all show this same thing.

But I am sure it is all a conspiracy.

That because math has a certain set of rules that must be followed. All the sites are following the rules, and therefore give 9. If you change the rules you will get 1, or 6, or 0. Or some other incorrect answer.

But, lets face it. Every website is conspiring to give the wrong answer and DUCM, Casper are correct.

But multiplication and division are on the same level, even the m comes before the d in pemdas. So, from what I know, you would just go from left to right when dealing with mult. And div., leaving you with 9 for the problem.

It is a scientific calculator. Do you want me to turn it landscape so you can see the whole screen with all the scientific annotations/buttons. I can take a quick pic, but it would only serve to make you look more foolish.

I was hoping you were going to say that. That is why I took it "portrait" not landscape. So you would use "scientific calculator"rebuttal, and I could post a pic showing it is scientific.
