Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
Its about whether you do the juxtaposition first or not count the parenthesis and do the order of operations/PEMDAS first. What is the real answer? Maybe 2(2+1) act as a unit: 2*2+2*1=6. Or maybe the parenthesis do not count and its from left to right. My smart advanced calculator (Texas Instrument) got 9.

I give up. You guys are way hard headed.. The answer is one. 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.

"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?"

Is there a different equation for this that would work better than 6÷2(1+2) = ?

If Log"2n"(1944) = Log"n" (486&#8730;2), determine the value of n^6.

log_2n 1944 = log_n (486 &#8730;2)
=> log_2 1944 / log_2 (2n) = log_2 (486 &#8730;2) / log_2 n

=> (log_2 4 - 1/2) log_2 n = log_2 486 + 1/2
=> log_2 n = 2/3 log_2 486 + 1/3
=> log_2 n^6 = 6 log_2 n = 4 log_2 486 + 2
=> n^6 = 486^4 . 2^2

This is an acronym for

D.......Division
M.......Minus
S.......Subtraction

So, first the Brackets..1+2=3
now we have 6/2x3
now the "of" which is 2x3=6

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.)

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?

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.

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.
