But maybe not. Wolf is saying those things because Caper is wrong. Read this below man. His own words. I think you can see the error in what he said/typed. Which clearly shows.. 3÷1(1+2)=9 Exact same type of problem as original. See below. That is THE most retarded answer I have ever seen. If you believe that, then no bloody wonder you getting 9 as a response. Quoting: "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. 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. You can see, by removing the redudant 1... it leaves you with one equation... 3(1+2). If you really are not starting to see the error, then sorry for posting again. Forgotten: Reach me at admin@TheGoldenRuleNow.org |

Notice how they don't change 2x into 2 * x and then use only the 2 for the divisor??

ZinthanielUser ID: 35630633 United States 03/05/2013 04:58 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | 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.

JamesVII 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. |

JamesVII A different answer obviously, but I don't get your point. With the distributive property used even with pemdas used in conjunction you still get 9. 6÷2(1+2) 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.
