Their is no flaw to the equation. Just your thought process. But, of course, you would say there is flaw to the equation. haah hahah that is the funniest thing I have heard today. The equation is flawed. haha Once again, people not being able to properly understand what they are computing is the flaw. This thread is like a Fibonacci sequence. Compute that.

Just add the previous two numbers and keep going. Keep typing and you'll remove all doubt that you are an imbecile. Anonymous Coward 16406360 haha Ok, great you understand it. Now use it to equate the things around you. DO you even know what the equation is called that they use for the sequence? Calling the sequence simple shows how much of it you do not understand..

Let's see how your logic holds up against some basic mathematics. Quoting: 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 . Syrius This is old, and the answers STILL 9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! |

Gern BlanstonUser ID: 3562554 United States 05/30/2012 06:09 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | The answer is 1. Its all about the parenthesis. Those of you getting 9 are forgetting that when you are left with 6/2(3) you still have parenthesis around the 3 which have to be dealt with first before you divide. They don't just magically disappear. Still not convinced, 2(1+2) can also be expressed as (2*1)+(2*2) which I think we can all agree on =6, so 6/6=1 I'm sure someone has already mentioned this earlier, but I'm not about to check 80+ pages of math comments. |

It stands for "Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction". This tells you the ranks of the operations: Parentheses outrank exponents, which outrank multiplication and division (but multiplication and division are at the same rank), and these two outrank addition and subtraction (which are together on the bottom rank). When you have a bunch of operations of the same rank, you just operate from left to right.

Anonymous Coward 10621441 6 divided by 2 can also be written 6 over 1 times 1 over two. Now remove the brackets. 1\2 times 1 equals 1/2. 1\2 times 2 equals 1. 1\2 plus 2 equals 3\2 and times that by 6 since you already changed the division to times and added the recipcal of 2. 6\1 times 3\2 equaqls 18/2 which reduces to 9. Write the equation like this (1 plus 2) 6 divided by 2. Use six to remove the brackets but don't forget to change your division to times and add the recipical of 2 first. The answer is 9. but I dropped out of math. So I could be wrong but 9 checks multiple ways. Do I win the potatoes and bananas. |
