Which ever one comes first going from left to right is the problem you solve first. Therefore the answer is 9. Quoting: This is simple fucking math people. Anonymous Coward 2671891 Look it up, divison or multiplication goes first whichever comes first. the answer is one. 6/2(1+2)=? 2x(1+2)=6 2x(3)=6 6x=6 x=1 the answer is one.

Do any of you math majors know the answer to: Quoting: What is the square root of 4? Just checking some basics. Anonymous Coward 1455668 Lol, it has nothing to do with being on any level. Just using simple rules to a poorly stated problem. I am not a math major, the highest college course I have taken in math would either be calc 2 or one of the higher stats courses I took. I see why some people say 1, but I am sticking to my original answer which is 1. I cannot believe I took a few minutes to look it up, but it supported my thoughts. Keep thinking it is 1 all you want. My movie is now done loading far enough ahead, peace. |

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.

Anonymous Coward User ID: 16244264 Canada 05/28/2012 12:38 AM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | I love this meme.. the '1ers' are so effective in their shilling. The answer is obviously 9 BEDMAS- Brackets, Exponents, Division/Multiplication, Addition/Subtraction Division and multiplication are done in the order of which they appear in the equation after each calculation. Ditto with Addition/subtraction. 6÷2(2+1) Step 1: Brackets 6÷2(3) Step 2: There are no exponents Step 3: Division/Multiplication Now, this is where the 1'ers have their fun. For some reason, they think 2*3 is the next calculation. Some of them will even say, "everything in the brackets", well, all that is left in the brackets is 3. I don't know how this is anything other than a meme, an intentional joke by many-a people. the next calculation, 6÷2, equals 3 3(3) Step 4: Division/Multiplication When a number is next to brackets, they are to be multiplied, after the operations inside the brackets are complete of course. 9! For some reason, the 1'ers perceive the equation as 6÷(2(2+1)) -- In which case, the 2*3 operation would be completed, as it IS within brackets. I don't understand the "1" joke. I can only understand cancer, and those who will get are the ones who believe the answer is "1". |
