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.

ForgottenUser ID: 29097718 United States 01/21/2013 10:59 AM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | But multiplication and division are on the same level, even the m comes before the d in pemdas.
