Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
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. =]
 Quoting: Zinthaniel


If you substitute the plus sign with a multiply, in the parenthesis, what do you get then? Parenthesis are there to determine order.
 Quoting: 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.
 Quoting: Zinthaniel


Ok, maybe it's cause of my public education, but I'm going to try to explain what I've learned, and I know it's probably somewhere in the last hundred pages or so, but can you please explain the following:


6/2(1a+2a)= ?
when a=1

(6)/2(1a+2a)=?
when a=1


6/2(1a+2a)=?
when a=2

(6)/2(1a+2a)=?
when a=2

Under your theory, these should all be the same, yes?
 Quoting: JamesVII


The division symbol is not to be construed as necessitating a numerator/denominator relationship.

The parenthesis and order of operations supersedes everything else.

So, 9.

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
the correct answer is 9

parenthesis first and then it goes from left to right

6/2 = 3
1+2 = 3
3*3 =9

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

First:
Today, parentheses or brackets are used to explicitly denote precedence by grouping parts of an expression that should be evaluated first.
Then:
The order of operations used throughout mathematics, science, technology and many computer programming languages is expressed here:[2]
exponents and roots
multiplication and division
addition and subtraction
This means that if a mathematical expression is preceded by one operator and followed by another, the operator higher on the list should be applied first.

Mnemonics (like PEDMAS) may be misleading ...especially if the user is not aware that multiplication and division are of equal precedence, as are addition and subtraction.

The correct answer is 9.



Arithmetic Order of Operations:

Rule 1: First perform any calculations inside parentheses.

Rule 2: Next perform all multiplications and divisions, working from left to right.

Rule 3: Lastly, perform all additions and subtractions, working from left to right.

6/2= 3
(1+2) multiply brackets X first calculation

3 X 3 =9

No other answer is correct.

Alright, there's a lot of self-proclaimed experts around these parts. Let's see how your logic holds up against some basic mathematics.

6÷2(1+2) = ?

I'll give two hints. This is NOT a trick question, and there is only 1 correct answer.

All tools used for computation are fair game.

(Yes, I saw this somewhere else and decided to post it here.)

Best of luck to all you geniuses .

The equation is poorly written so it could be 9 or 1 but here:

6÷(2(1+2))=1

(6÷2)(1+2)=9

Multiply or Divide before you Add or Subtract. Example:

Otherwise just go left to right. Example:

30 ÷ 5 × 3 = 6 × 3 = 18 yes


30 ÷ 5 × 3 = 30 ÷ 15 = 2 no

(wrong)

Divide and Multiply rank equally (and go left to right).

people who answered 9 should go back to school. the final operation is not 3*3=9, it's 3/3=1. that sign with the two dots above and below the dash means division, not multiplying.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1368063


Oops, and people wonder why we have third world countries.

Multiplication and division are the same operation and are performed "simultaneously" in an abstract sense. OR Performed LEFT TO RIGHT as written.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1309528


No they're not. "Simultaneously in an abstract sense"?? What kind of idiot bullshit is that?????

Division is done FIRST. PERIOD!!!

Proof that you have to evaluate division first:

3*4/5*6

If you incorrectly evaluate multiplication first you get:

3*4/5*6
12/30
.4

If you correctly evaluate division first you get:

3*4/5*6
3*.8*6
14.4

.4 is NOT 14.4!

Order of operations bitches! Don't forget it!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1367296


holy shit. this is next level stupid. when using the order of operations it does not mean that you only consider the numbers on either side of the symbol. equations have a context that you have to read and you simplify based on what's given to you.

6 % 2 ( 2 + 1 )

there are two numbers that you are using to find a dividend with

6

and

2(2+1) (which is 6 expanded)

the question is asking you, "what is the dividend of six DIVIDED BY EVERYTHING AFTER THE DIVIDING SIGN

you can't magically pull that two away from the bracket in order to divide it into 6. the mere presence of the bracket gives you the context of the equation and tells you what you can and cannot do with it.

you are thinking (6/2) * (2+1), which violated the laws of the universe

there is only one answer, and it is one.

Google returns (6 / 2) * (1 + 2) = 9
When I look at the formation of the OP, I see 2(1 + 2) as one value, being (2 + 4).
Thus, I see 6 / 6 = 1
