6^2 = 36
so we have 36/2(3) + 4
2(3) = 6
36/6 = 6(duh)
then 6 + 4 = 10

Why are you treating the 2(3) as a single term? It's not a true parenthetical. It's an alternate way to write 2 x 3. Thus the answer is 58.

A programmer would write the expression either as

I fixed that for you, anon.

6^2/2(3)+4
Prof. Anon's Math Class is in session, listen closely children.
First, we do the parenthesis, there's none of those. So, we do the Exponents, 6^2, AKA 6*6 for anyone who doesn't know how exponents work. Don't forget to rewrite your problem after each solution to not lose your place!
6^2=36
36/2(3)+4
Next, we do Multiplication OR Division, from left to right, so we're doing the Division now.
36/2=18
18(3)+4
We've still got multiplication to do, so we'll take care of that!
18(3)=54
54+4=
All that's left is to do the addition, and we've got our answer.
54+4=58

Don't forget to do your homework!

i realize you assholes are trolling, but since this place is flooded with children and the current generation is already shitty enough:

this can only be correctly read as 6 squared, divided by 2, multiplied by 3, plus 4.

you evaluate everything INSIDE the parentheses first, and then treat the result as a single term when evaluating the next level outside the parentheses, so OoO means that you perform the division by two before the multiplication. there is no other correct way to interpret the statement because math is a non-ambiguous language (otherwise, you wouldn't be able to punch in expressions and have your calculator understand them).

The parenthesis are only around the 3. They effectively vanish, replaced with a multiplication sign. Then left to right. Answer is 58.

The question is written incorrectly.

Order of operations is irrelevant, the obelus makes it ambiguous as to which numbers are in the divisor.

There are three equally correct answers, depending on how you interpret the obelus: 54, 10, and 3.6

This is why an obelus is incorrect notation for proper equations.
>>
>>701127457
And that ladies and gentlemen, ist the reason no European student uses the god damn divis after grade 4 anymore...
>>
>>701130798
again, for the sake of the childrens...

the parens resolve to a value of 3. if it was 6^2/2(3-2) + 4 then the answer would be 22. just because the 2 is next to the (3) doesn't mean you perform that Multiplication before the division to the left.

and again, I know you're just being a troll, but kids are dumb enough already
>>
>>701130798
>The very first letter tells you to resolve the parenthesis first.
Yes, and there is nothing inside the parenthesis to SOLVE you dense shit.
(3) is not a problem, it's the same as saying *3 or multiplied by 3, and as we know you do not do multiplication first unless it is inside a parenthesis, which it is not.
(2(3)) would be in parenthesis, which states the 2 MUST be multiplied by the 3
2(3) is just saying multiply whatever is to the left of the 3, which in the case of the problem is 18, NOT 2. because you START with exponents THEN move left to right doing division OR multiplication
Did you fail 5th grade math? This is not complex at all.
>>
>>701131134
it's not ambiguous; you can't write an expression ambiguously, just incorrectly.

Solve the equations for x
6^2/2(x)+4=58
6^2/2(x)+4-4=58-4
36/2(x)=54
18(x)/18=54/18
x=3
Now solve for the resultant being 10
6^2/2(x)+4=10
6^2/2(x)+4-4=10-4
36/2(x)=6
18(x)/18=6/18
x=.33333
therefore by proof the answer is 58

>>701130000
Quads confirm it's 10. End of discussion.

36/ 2(3) + 4

Okay now lets do the parenthesis (3) = 3

Wowee, you sure are one dumb nigger. It's formatted like absolute shit. "Going from left to right and looking nice" is not what separates a well formatted mathematical expression from an ill formatted one. That's what a useless broad who majored in art history would think counts as nice formatting. A well formatted mathematical expression would be written unambiguously and clearly. It would use parentheses to separate terms properly. It would not start these types of arguments.

And it sure as hell would not use the god damn "divided by" symbol that first graders use.

>>701131590
no. and incorrect expression would be either mechanically incorrect (3 +/ 7) or syntactically incorrect (3 + 7 when you meant 3 - 7). any valid expression is unambiguous because the language used to communicate mathematical expressions is unambiguous. because the rules don't allow for more than one correct interpretation of a valid expression, the language is unambiguous.

Let me just add all this extra shit to this problem that doesn't need to be there because I'm retarded and can't read a 3rd-grade level mathematical problem.
Do you write 3*2 as (3*2)?
Are you so dense you have to write ((1+2)+3) for it to make sense ?
NO, you fucking don't, get over yourself with your convoluted bullshit.

knowing these things removes any possible ambiguity from this problem. like many anons in this thread have already said: this problem is not ambiguous; it is only being incorrectly interpreted, which makes you (the interpreter) WRONG.

the answer is 58
>>
>>701127457
With that formatting it seems like it is 58, but the 6^2 should be put as a numerator to 2(3), making a fraction like so.
Solve the 6^2 and 2(3) independently to get 36 over 6.
Now you have 6+4
6+4=10

The commutative property has nothing to do with anything you just said, except that 2*3 = 3*2. Which is completely irrelevant to the rest of the problem, because we are not multiplying 2 by 3, we are multiplying 18 by 3.

What does that have to do with the equation?
NOTHING that's what.
3*2 is the same as 2*3
36/2 is not the same as 2/36
That is all the commutative property says. That still holds true even in this problem.

This is right. Numbers on the outside of brackets (britfag) multiply the numbers on the inside. 2(3) is just a different way of writing 2x3.

From a moderate autistic view and under the assumption that this puzzle is supposed to work like normal arithmetics, there is no answer. You have a system of 4 linear equations with 6 different variables (Yes, "two yellow flowers" would be a different symbol then "yellow flower" with a 2 in front). Therefore it's underdetermined therefore there's no answer.

>>701134967

This. You would also have to do different assumptions for multiple flowers and different petal count. These are two seperate expressions and can't mean the same thing, i.e. coefficient. As in two flowers means 2*x, 4 petals means (4/5)*x can't work.

The people that are getting 10 are using the PEMDAS method of course. However here is the problem. They are taking the method way literally, you're supose to solve the problem Left to right ~>.

I think we agree we all get to the part of the problem

36/2(3)+4 or 36/2*3+4

Now we get to the part of MD (multiply, divide) of PEMDAS.

What you are suppose to do here is divide (D)
so 36/2 is 16

"WHAT, BUT THE "M" COMES FIRST. YOU'RE FUCKING STUPI-"

Yeah, but its either Multiply or Divide.
You're suppose to be working the problem from left to right ~>

Yes, it is. But only 3 has priority, the multiplication does not. Is a trick to make you do a mistake and evaluate 2×3 instead of 36/2. You will see if when you replace (3) with (3×1).

>>701148652
Lets take this equation for an example:

First you open the parenthesis:

>6x + 8
The parenthesis on the original equation has no effect.

No one who is a mathematician would write OPs question the way they did. However with the current way it is written the answer is 58.


Here is our question:
6^2/2(3)+4

First step is to return the value in the brackets, this is where OP is trying to trick you. However the value is simply returned if there is no operation in the brackets. So the question becomes:
6^2/2x3+4

Next we calculate our exponents
36/2x3+4

If we were retarded we would screw up at this step. Both multiplication and division share the same hierarchy in the order of operations, however this question is left-associative so we must divide first and we get:
18x3+4

Next we multiply:
54+4

Then add four for our total of:
58

Next time stack exponents to really fuck with people OP.
