Anonymous Coward User ID: 21495402 Canada 01/20/2013 02:54 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | The answer is 9 once again think BEDMAS or PEDMAS however you wanna pronounce it 3/1(2+1) brackets first = 3/1(3) exponents = there are none, 3/1(3) division = 3/1(3) = 3(3) multiplication = 3(3) = 9 once again the answer is 9....i dont see how you could get 1...just use ORDER OF OPERATIONS |

The brackets remain... so you need to divide first. 3/1(1+2)=x Do the brackets first 3/1(3)=x But you still have brackets... so they are first you have to multiply 1 and 3... leaving you with 3/3= 1 |

Anonymous Coward User ID: 32630104 United States 01/20/2013 05:10 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | You didn't take your own advice. 3 / 1 x 3 All that's left is mult and divide so you go in order form left to right 3/1= 3 x 3 = 9 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] Anonymous Coward 919411 |

Once you do the equation within the parenthesis, it's now part of the remaining equation. You obviously attended public school You Ninetards need to remember the brackets don't disappear after you add the numbers inside.

Same with addition and subtraction. Though multiplication and division come before addition and subtraction. Or from what I remember. |

HJTRASUser ID: 26396568 United States 01/20/2013 06:04 PM Report Abusive Post Report Copyright Violation | OP, you're a troll. Notice how few people so far have given the correct answer so far? Because all the intelligent people that can do basic math have already made their argument in the other math thread (which you so ingeniously reformatted into your own stupidity) and are tired of trying to educate the feeble minded. Quoting: I'll take a crack at explaining it for all you 1tards. Math is math, it's not open to interpretation. There's only one right answer and one way of solving the equation. BEDMAS, PEMDAS or whatever other abbreviation you use for the order of operations, still operates from left to right. First you do the brackets from left to right, then you do the exponents from left to right, then multiplication and division in order from left to right and finally addition and subtraction in order from left to right. Get it? You reread the equation from left to right after completing each of the orders of operation. It's 9. ALL the time. CalmShock Funny how the posters that came up with 1 have concluded that anyone that believes the answer is 9 are complete idiots. Yes the answer is 9. Like you said all the time. RAS |

"well there should be a * there..." or whatever else puts their mind at ease. Excuses created out of fear that they just might be borderline retarded.
