In the order of operations multiplication and division have the same priority Jack you find your answer by going left to right when you come to a situation where you can either divide or multiply. I can't believe you think you are more intelligent than others. |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 919411 United States 01/20/2013 09:47 AM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | Follow the rules known as the "Order of Operations": 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. 3/1(1+2) = x Perform operations inside parentheses first. 1+2 = 3 so, 3/1(3) = x Perform multiplication from left to right. 1(3) = 3 so, 3/3 = x Perform division from left to right. 3/3 = 1 so, x = 1 Here is a link to a page that helps to illustrate how to solve mathematics equations employing the rules known as the "Order of Operations": [link to www.mathgoodies.com] |

wishiwasUser ID: 31925288 United States 01/20/2013 10:19 AM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | Parentheses first. Then multiply to get the answer out of parentheses. Then divide. X=1 And algebra fucking rocks....if you know how to do it.
