## Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ? | |

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

Answer is 1. [link to www.math.com] Quoting: Anonymous Coward 4239460 Thank you. 1. 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. |

So your equations look like this. 6/2(1*1+2*1) At this point Pemdas is applied at the answer is discover through simple arithmetic. Without knowledge of the values of your variable then the distributive property is applied. so: 6/2(1a+2a) Well one the parentheses can be simplified to 3a squared. Then you can do 6/2*3a squared or 3*3a squared. You know there's to many buttons in the world, and they're just begging to be pushed. |

You are isolating the 2, but that's not possible. For instance when using the distributive property when it would be most useful would be in polynomial and binomial equations. They have variables. 4x(x+xy) as we all know 4x= 4*x but you don't isolate the x and then distribute it by it's self like this: 4(x squared + x squared*y) you always keep the 4 and the x together. this also applies to division. so 4/x(x+xy) = 4/x squared + 4/x squared *y) that is how it has always been done. Check any distributive property article explaining it function and application. you can not isolate the 2. the 2 in this instants it equivalent to and is acting as the x in any binomial or polynomial equation. In which the x is never separated when distributed unless it is explicitly alone.

Why would this rule suddenly be dropped in this equation? The 6 has to be distributed along with the 2. So the when done correctly it looks like such: 6÷2*1+6÷2*2=9 |
