I bet you faggots can't even solve this simple math problem.
Except it has no parenthesis so it goes straight from left to right, resulting in a 2. Nice b8 tho, made me reply. That or your common core is showing
BODMAS YOU FUKIN RETARDS.
Hello fellow educated white citizens
-17, -13, and 2 are all acceptable answers. This is an incomplete equation and would never be written like this. No amount of arguing over order of operations will come to the correct answer as there are 3 correct answers. Stop being such faggots.
you people are fucking retarded the answer is obviously 15
Anybody who has ever completed any form of educational program would know about PEMDAS.
PEMDAS used in the problem would have you multiply the (-)3 by 6, making (-)18.
Then, Addition and Subtraction are in the same plane of priority, so you continue your arithmetic from left to right.
Solved. Everyone else is just a bitch.
>Used a calculator
>Missed the class where they teach you to use common sense
>Calc. came up with -13
>Can't do the simplest of operations
>100% BUTMAD, murican fat rage.
> "U r retuardd"
The answer is 2
Everyone that arrives at s different answer should sterilize themselves.
YOUR WRONG FAGGOT
well, your answer is right, but your math is Downs level.
And before you say any more faggot bullshit, let me remind you that if you take the subtraction sign from the 3-3 to give you the initial -18, then you would be left with 3 (-18)+2=??, and in that situation, the proper response would be to multiply negative 18 by 3, not add 3 too negative 18, and if thats what you were going to do, then you should have just multiplied 3 by negative 3 in the first place, and also, your answer, if you were to use this fucking nigger logic, would be -52.
how could you possibly arrive at 8? not sure if bait but if it isnt you should kill yourself
left to right rule also applies here, -17 and -13 are both technically correct as this problem isnt properly portrayed.
Now this 18 is NEGATIVE disregarding bedmas and doing the +2 first is still
You cant just take the - off as it suits you.
How did you people pass math? Fucking autists
This thread has made me more angry than any other thread.
You guys all need to understand there's no such thing as order of operations. It's what we teach children to make sure they don't fuck up.
The question simply has 3 discreet terms:
Add them up. You're done.
You go from left to right, when the orders of operation are equal to each other
plus and minus are just inverse actions of each other, so we take it from left to right, as it is read.
the answer is: there is no answer to this.
-13 and -17 can both be the answer, because there are no brickets and therefore the problem is not clearly defined. Pemdas and shit like that is not an universal rule in maths, its only used for highschool teachings. >>683647692
thats exactly how you dont solve this problem! there are no brickets and you cant just add them in there like a fucking idiot.
I just got a 5 on an AP Physics exam
It's -17 YOU ARE the one that's retarded.
6×3 = 18
3-18 = -15
-15-2 = -17
In pemdas, subtraction & addition are treated equally, and multiplication & division are treated equally.
addition 2+3=5 (the reason you dont add 2 to 18 is because 18 is being subtracted therefore it is counted as a negative number so if i was to add it to the 18 it would equal 16 [unless its in parentheses and the subraction symbol/ negative sign is on the outside of the parentheses]
subtraction 5-18= 13
(btw i didn't look this up im just better than all of you)
If you see x, as a variable, 3x6 would be 3 times x times 6 right? Which would give
But since it's a expression, and not a equation this is incorrect.
It says +2
A real genius wouldn't have set up a basic math problem in that order. Thats like saying hey guys every season of south park after the 2nd one is awesome BUT only before the 5th nothing after with the exception of the 7th.
Get out of here with this shit. Better yet.. Do everyone a favor. Edit that pic and word it correctly than pass it on. Youll forever be known as THE OP that did it..
Well in elementary school, I learned Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally
Multiplication / Division
Addition / Subtraction
You always do parenthesis first, no mater what, then you take care of exponents, then you do all multiplication and division portions of the problem as you come to them, then all addition and subtraction portions. The thing that most of you fetal alcohol syndrome cocksuckers forget, and don't be sad, it's your mom's fault more than it is yours, is that after each of these steps, you start back on the left hand side of your problem and work your way to the right.
It's 2016, so why the fuck do people on /b/ still act like basic ass math is rocket surgery?
for everyone screaming ORDER OF OPERATIONS HURRRRR. and this saying -17, shove this shit down your throats you faggots
>IM BETTER THAB ALL OF you
>forgets the -
Usually you would go from left to right. However because the first number is connected to the other 3 which is being multiplied the 3x6 comes first making the equation
Now continue to use pemdas and subtract 18 from 3 giving -15. Add 2 and you get -13.
If your answer isn't -13, you're a fucking retard.
I love these math problem threads. They're a great way of exposing the true retards of this board.
And like always:
If there are no brakets, the multiply symbol just apply to the numbers on the right and on the left of the symbol.
-13 is the only right answer; everything else is bullshit.
yeah and thats the exact problem you fucking stupid dipshit. You are working on portions that are not that clearly defined. Now stop arguing with your idiotic mindset and keep writing bad grades in math you shithead
my god guys you sucks. It's -13
(+3) - (+3)(+6) + (+2)
THE - BEFORE (+3) IS CONSIDERED AS A (-1)
SO IT BECAME
(+3) -3(+6) + (+2)
(+3) - 18 + (+2)
-15 + (+2)
This is fucking elementary school math
B: There are no brackets to do
E: there are no exponents to do
DM: There is division and/or multiplication to do, in order from left to right.
AS: There is addition and/or subtraction to do, in order from left to right.

Order of Operations
GEMDAS or more commonly known as PEMDAS stands for something
D- division (although read left from from right M & D can be interchanged)
S- subtraction(same scenarion as M & D)
All equations should and will be read, left to right like a sentence.
Alright going by the rules we would multiply first seeing as there is no grouping or exponents
Now we read left to right, subtracting 18 from 3. seeing as 18 is a bigger number than 3, it would result in a negative number. Since subtraction is just addition of negative numbers, the positive 3 would cancel out 3 of the 18 resulting in -15.
Using the same process as before we cancel out 2 of 15, making it 13
So the answer is -13
The correct answer is as follows:
Question: 3 – 3 x 6 + 2
Multiplication first: 3 – 18 + 2
Left to right: -15 + 2
So what do you get if you type it into a calculator (physical or app)?
That depends on if the calculator is simple and calculates as you type, or if it is smart and waits for the entire equation to be entered and the equals button pressed.
On my Windows 10 Mobile phone, the calculator app can behave in both ways.
In Scientific mode, it allows the entire equation to be entered and so correctly calculates the answer as -13 using the “Order of Operations” rules (same as above).
In Standard mode, it calculates as you type and so incorrectly gives the answer as 2. The way to think of it is that it inherently presses equals each time you press an operation button. This is just left to right calculation and ignores the “Order of Operations” rules.
3 = 3
3 – 3 = 0
0 x 6 = 0
0 + 2 = 2
If your calculator behaves in this simple way, you would need to apply the rules yourself. Here are the buttons to press:
3 x 6 = MS
3 – MR + 2 =
If your calculator has brackets or parentheses buttons you can use them instead of the Memory buttons to achieve the same effect.
3 – ( 3 x 6 ) + 2
Nice 2$ calculator, ur the retard famalam. Use your head sometimes instead of reling on a crutch.
You fucking idiots never learned basic math?
3 - 3 x 6 + 2
3 - 3 x 8 Addition comes first alphabetically
3 - 24 Multiplication comes next alphabetically
-21 Subtraction is last
What has this world come to?
Lol you are a faggot for real, allow me to re iterate
3-3*6+2 = 3-(3*6)+2
3-(3*6)+2 = 3-(18)+2
3-(18)+2 = (-15) +2
The parenthesis show what happen with the (3*6)
>Since the × is in the middle, we work >around that.
>Anything timesd by 0 is 0 idiot.
While it's true that anything multiplies by 0 is equal to zero, that rule is useless when there is no zero in the equation.
There is no 0 because it doesnt say 3-3, it says 3-(3*6)+2 which is 3-18+2 which is -13
I highly suggest you retake your math test at elementary school, clearly you forget basic math over time
3 - 3 x6 + 2= ?
3 - 3 + 2= -6x
2 = - 6x
2/6 = x
x = 1/3
>The parenthesis show what happen with the (3*6)
But there ARE no parethesis. If there is no parethises, work from the middle sign. Im not the one who needs to go back to elementary, you are

Well seeing as though this is a forum and no one is actually speaking, i'd advise laying of the ketamine for a while until you can distinguish between written text and a moving mouth.
If you're not on drugs then you're just a retard, in which case, kill yourself my man.
A parenthesis signifies a more important part in an equation. In the original question there are no parenthesis, but mulriplication always goes before plus and minus.
Check the amount of chromosomes, it seems you have one to many
3x6 = 18
your ecuation becomes
3 - 18 + 2
you can do it in any order you want as long as you respect the sings.
3 - 18 = -15
-15 + 2 = -13
-18 + 2 = -16
3 - 16 = -13
when you add numbers together you take the sign in front of them
Order of operations you dumb motherfuckers, this guy here with the dubs is right.
Do your math in this order for the correct answer
Now run along to lunch kids, I'll see you in 45 minutes for more on division.
