fishermanUser ID: 22622555 Russian Federation 08/26/2012 07:10 AM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | The order of operations is the order in which all algebraic expressions should be simplified. Oftentimes, the meaning of a complex expression changes depending upon the order in which it is calculated. The order of operations is: Parentheses Exponents (and Roots) Multiplication & Division Addition & Subtraction This means that expressions within parentheses are evaluated first, then exponents (including roots, i.e. radicals), then multiplication and division (at the same level), and finally addition and subtraction (at the same level). If there are multiple operations at the same level on the order of operations, move .Whichever mnemonic you use, be aware that multiplication does not always come before divisionfrom left to right1) 1+2=3 2) 6:2=3 3) 3x3=9 6 ÷ 2 (1 +2) = 9 |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 29937386 United States 12/15/2012 02:22 AM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | What people forget is PEMDAS needs to be applied Left to right. Rules 1. Calculations must be done from left to right. 2. Calculations in brackets (parenthesis) are done first. When you have more than one set of brackets, do the inner brackets first. 3. Exponents (or radicals) must be done next. 4. Multiply and divide .in the order the operations occur5. Add and subtract . in the order the operations occurSo 6÷2(1+2) = ? First in order is (1+2) which equals 3 so now you have 6÷2*3=? Now remember it is done from left to right so even though in PEMDAS multiplications comes first... in the problem at had starting at the 6 and working left to right the division comes first so then you divide 6÷2=3 So now you have 3*3 which equals 9. So 9 is the correct answer and if you come up with 1 as an answer you need to remember it is left to right It IS a trick question because the arithmetic layout is ambiguous. Quoting: 6÷[2(1+2)] = 1 (6÷2)(1+2) = 9 It's not a difficult problem, it's just laid out wrong. The question is deliberately ambiguous and that people get different answers is of no surprise. Anonymous Coward 1368046You are retarded, its not a trick, its the rules of math, short notation maybe, but certainly fair game for second or third grade. Anonymous Coward 1309528 |

It should read 6 / 2 x (1 + 2) I did a bit of googling around and 9 is the correct answer to this problem, so looks like I'm not that retarded after all. |

As I read through the posts it is clear that math inhibits our ability to act humane. Some of us are taught one or two rules differently than others, or our memories serve us better...anyways...the matter of a correct answer is not relevant, this is 2012 if you get upset over people getting math problems wrong on a conspiracy forum...you might be a bit neurotic. Take some xanax and stfu. The biggest lie out there right now is that our food contains everything our bodies need for optimal health. |

I'm not math expert and didn't do well in any math courses, but I'm interested in mathematics for what it is. It makes me wonder if humans invested math or if math is an objective part of the universe. |
