Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
haven't done maths in over 20 years so might be a bit wrong :)

6÷2(1+2) = ?

2x(1+2)=6

6/6=1

yay

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
In the order of operations, multiplication does NOT come before division. Which ever one comes first going from left to right is the problem you solve first. Therefore the answer is 9.

This is simple fucking math people.

Patrick will sleep well with the knowledge that so many people are not at his level. Do any of you math majors know the answer to:

What is the square root of 4?

 Quoting: 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.

Patrick will sleep well with the knowledge that so many people are not at his level. Do any of you math majors know the answer to:

What is the square root of 4?

Just checking some basics.
 Quoting: 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 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.

Where does it say the other one is before the other?? left to right.. follow those rules.
