Scientific calculators knows the difference between a Quoting: typed n*(x) and n(x). DUCM900 Yes they do. There is no difference on those too. [link to img339.imageshack.us] See the scientific calculator symbols. I posted a video and did everything you asked me too. I have proven my part.

DUCM900 I have shown scientific calculator doing the problem and many other websites and programs doing the problem. All getting 9. Have you shown anything showing an answer of 1?

Why are all these tools giving the wrong answer? Occams Razor. Is it more likely every single thing used comes up with 9 and is wrong? Or more likely the answer is 9, and these tools/programs are correct. And that human error is leading to the answer of 1? 6÷2(3) = 6÷2*3 = 6/2*3= 6÷2*(3)= 9 Last Edited by Forgotten on 01/21/2013 12:03 PM Forgotten: Reach me at admin@TheGoldenRuleNow.org |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 31557420 United States 01/21/2013 06:17 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | I used to think like you. The answer is 1. Caper_26 can explain it well. I hope he just starts a thread and gives the several proofs. The main issue here, is that working from left to right is not part of the order of operations. Problems do not have to be worked left to right, because it shouldn't matter. And given that the obelus is really a grouping symbol, creating a dividend and a divisor. You always work a dividend and a divisor separately. And you can prove that with the identity property a/1a=1 |

Derive the equations showing all steps. Do not introduce unnecessary ( ) or * 6 ÷ 6 = 1 6 ÷ (4+2) = 1; Factor out the GCF (Greatest common factor of 2) 6 ÷ 2(2+1) = 1 Now for 9: 3 * 3 = 9 3 * (2+1) = 9 6/2 * (2+1) = 9 OR: 6 + 3 = 9 (6/2)2 + (6/2)1 = 9 (6/2)(2+1) = 9 Fractions as coefficients that use '/' , such as (6/2)n, must use parentheses.

Adding and multiplying is associative, so it doesn't matter what order you them in. Subtracting and division are the same as adding and multiplying. It is knowing things like this, as well as other details of maths, that allow you to see that this equation is solved as 1. [link to math.berkeley.edu] Read that.

Yes, it can be evaluated as 2 * x, but the value must remain so the meaning is different. Situation: You have apples to divide among people. You have 6 apples. A family (f) is 2 adults and 1 child, so f = 2+1 6 apples divided by a pair of families (where there are 3 in a family). f is a family of 3, so f = 36 ÷ 2f = 6 ÷ 2(3) = 1 6 ÷ 2(2+1) = 1 "I'm trying to free your mind, Neo.

Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32614604 It isn't the order of operations that is the problem. It is people not realizing that (2+1) is in the denominator. 6 ÷ 2(2+1) is 6 2(2+1) for the reason: a ÷ 1a = 1 = a/1a = a/(1a) they are redundant ( ) so they can be left out, since we don't want to clutter maths with unnecessary ( ) |
