Here is a real world example:

Solve:

100mm ÷ 10cm = ?
Quoting: caper_26

Dont bother responding, because I wont respond. Just wanted to show this "joke of an answer" you gave in other thread.

Which is obviously so wrong it isnt even funny. Redunancy indeed!

That is THE most retarded answer I have ever seen. If you believe that, then no bloody wonder you getting 9 as a response.

"Redundancy Law"

A coefficient of 1 does NOT need to be written. It is ALWAYS implied. a = 1a . Also the Identity Law. You CAN write though, but because of the math LAW stated, it cannot change the outcome of the answer.

Please tell me you see what is wrong with this! I thank you for posting, because I can actually use that as yet ANOTHER way to prove 1 is the answer, as a matter of fact !!

3÷1(1+2)=9 What kind of special math is this??

'1' as a coefficient can be omitted.
that means, according to you:

3÷1(1+2)= 3÷(1+2)
9 = 1

In reality though,
3÷1(1+2)= 3÷(1+2)
1 = 1

Thank you for showing everyone this "proof" and good night. Nothing more to be said here after that one.

Quoting: caper_26

I sincerely hope this is the last time you reply.

You are right, the 1 can be omitted. But that just means you remove the ÷, (the item between the 1 and 3), but that still leaves multiplication there. If you drop the "useless" 1, then you drop the item in between. Not the one after. at a loss for words.

worfram's result:

6÷2(1+2)=1

false

Quoting: DUCM900

Nice one. I already proved wolfram doesn't know how to substitute values for variables.

If I gave you 6÷2n = 3/n, then told you n=2+1; it is mathematically invalid to say 9 = 1

This is what wolfram does. Wolfram is proven useless to solve this equation correctly.

For all who dont understand math.

6/2(1+2) - Paranthesis first
6/2(3) - You dont get to do whatever you like to do first here, in an equation you work left to right. Like when you read, you dont start at the end of the sentence and work backwards. That would be STUPID
3(3) - Then you multiply

Such a simple equation that seems to bother even the most critical mind. Ashamed I live in this country sometimes.

Wolf is saying those things because Caper is wrong.

3÷1(1+2)=9

You drop the symbol between the 1 and the other number. You dont move over to somewhere else. Come on man, this is pretty straightforward.

3*1÷5 ... 1÷5 is not redudant. but 3*1 is... so you drop the * sign, not the ÷.

3÷5 is the same as above. Dropping the 1 and the symbol BETWEEN.

I thought DUCM was starting to see the light, so I responded. I will vanish now. Thanks for the laughs.

Add 2 to 1 to get 3.
(6)/(2)*(3)

Reduce the expression (6(3))/(2) by removing a factor of 2 from the numerator and denominator.
3(3)

Multiply 3 by each term inside the parentheses.

Here is how to rewrite the problem properly when the obelus is used. Notice how they don't change 2x into 2 * x and then use only the 2 for the divisor??

The 9ers somewhat understand the order of operations, but it is the algebra that is killing them in the end

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
You are incorrect.
The answer is still 9, even with the distributive property being, needlessly, applied.

If you have 4x(2y+3) you get 8xy + 12x Right?

That's because when you parse these units you don't just distribute the x by it's self you also distribute the 4 along with it.

4x = 4*x multiplication is of equal value of to division so rules are applied to them equally.

So like how both the x and the 4 are distributed the 2 and the 6 are distributed in the equation 6÷2(1+2).

And there for you end up with 6÷2*1 + 6÷2*2 = 9.

This is a needless way of solving the equation because it has no variables and therefore can be solved simply with pemdas which gives you the same answer yet again.

If you're using a sci calculator, you have to separate the 6 from everything else, or it does not follow the parenthesis order.... otherwise it will think the 6 should be divided by 2 first, because there are no parameters in multiply/divide going from left to right. The operator needs to understand this. Thanks.

9.

With distributive property properly applied.

6÷2*1+6÷2*2= still equals 9.

With basic pemdas application.

step one "P"
(1+2) = 3.

step two. From left to right solve any multiplication or division equations. Again from Left to Right.

so 6÷2*3 = 9 (Still)

Notice how the distributive property is not needed to reach the same absolute answer of 9, but even when applied you still get 9.

So 9. thank you basic arithmetic and algebra. =]

1: "P"

1+2=3 you can choose to leave the 3 in the parentheses if you so choose, but this is not necessary because the parentheses are not relevant at this point. But if you do then you have this.

6÷2(3) Now to distribute, if we must, but why?

anyways at this point since only 3 remains in the parentheses we get this

6÷2*3.

guess what it still equals 9.
