It really needs to be useful though and make sense to a 6th grader. Anonymous Coward 16720242 I am unsure how a simple narrative would explain this problem. Do you have one for 1? I have indicated that by simply communicating the equation a little differently than written will bring you to 1 that you want. Anonymous Coward 1455668 2 people have one apple each and get two more each They want to evenly divide their combined apples to 6 people so how many apples does each person get? Anonymous Coward 16720242 Nice, but is it possible that you have 6 people entering the arena to do battle. Three will die and the victors will each receive 3 apples. Anonymous Coward 1455668 No problem Now where does the 9 fit in? |

Patrick Bateman But shit, they can't get the order of how to solve equations algebraically down, so I suppose not understanding the order of much else is not a stretch. |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 8767617 Australia 05/28/2012 01:41 AM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | 6÷2(1+2) is the same as: 6/2*(1+2) Putting something outside parentheses generally means that it is multiplied by whatever is inside the parentheses. The exception to this would be a function call, such as for example: triple(1+2), which would return 9. Clearly "2" isn't a function, so 2(1+2) means 2*(1+2). / is the same as ÷, but easier to type. Then the equation is simple, just follow the normal rules of operator precedence: 6/2*(1+2) = 6/2*(3) = 3 * 3 = 9 |

FaithNoMore The scary part is they are being TAUGHT this This is what happens when people don't actually apply their maths to real world problems. Book smart doesn't cut it because the world around you does not follow rules of convenience. It is a result of the US not making much of anything anymore so there is no hands on to make the connection. |
