>not knowing basic math
Anon, please explain the reasoning for your stupidity.
You fucks, you cant multiply 2 into the parenthesis buy itself, pemdas bedmas shit doesnt apply here. Only + and - decides parts, however as it is a 6 divided by 2 its only one part, so you would have to multiply 6/2 as a fraction into the paranthesis which then is 3*3 = 9. Its basic calculus
PEMDAS is for children.
Multiplication and division resolve at the same time. Since diving by x is the exact same as multiplying by (1/x).
Because of that it can be rewritten:
The answer is 9.
I punched it into Google's calculator. Now it's settled!
How about you just express the problem properly?
holy shit you dumb as hell
division IS multiplication: 6/x = 6(1/x)
so why would it make sense to skip 6/ ?
You can think of division as the same thing as multiplying by the reciprocal.
Question should be phrased as this
6 / 2 x 3 (ignore that bracket BS slown shit down).
Referring to top statement, 6 / 2 = 6 x (1/2) = 6 x 0.5.
So question becomes 6 * 0.5 x 3 = 3 x 3 = 9.
>E for effort
^= 6 / ( 2 * ( 1 + 2 ) ) = 1
Exponents. ( Power, Square Roots, etc )
Multiplication and Division ( left to right )
Adition and Subtraction ( left to right )
So looking a the calculation, the correct way is:
6/2(1+2) = 1
Okay, this is not really an acceptable answer when it comes to mathematics.
Fuck you. Never talk about math again.
THIS is equal to either 1 or 9. Fuck you, and I hope you have a nice fucking day.
Well at the end of the day its just notation, a convention for standardising the order of operations in a communicable form.
Its about communication, the answer is only correct with respect to the context of the question.
Amerifucks cant seem to grasp this due to their crappy education system. The feels...
Kek Check em!
And man chill, I fucked up but at least I have the balls to own up to it.
>btw I don't eat McDonald's, it's overpriced bullshit in a box
Oh carp. That makes more sense!
I like this thread.
Anyone thought of regional difference?
>having to search it
>/threading own post
>not getting laid
6 / 2 * ( 1 + 2 )
= 6 * 1 / 2 * 3
>Since 6 / 2 is the same as 6 * 1 / 2 and 1 + 2 is 3 in case you didn't know.
>Since 6 / 1 * 1 / 2 * 3 / 1 equals 18 / 2 or 9 / 1 which is the same as a 9.
Anyone who faults this is a fucking idiot and needs to rethink his life choices.
Different methods of notation actually differ on whether you treat 2x as a single term and resolve it internally first or whether you split it up and add the implied 2 * x and resolve it as if it were written as such.
Pro-tip: 1 used to be the standard answer. MOST institutions have switched notation convention so that 9 is the correct answer (at least by western standards). But some people use old textbooks, or learned abroad, or have learned from teachers who have never had this issue come up as it's so fucking rare because HOLY HELL JUST WRITE YOUR EQUATION CLEARLY YOU DEGENERATE FUCK.
>But no, clearly if you disagree with MY answer, you're just stupid.
You dumb fucking nigger. Multiplication is associative meaning it doesn't matter how you multiply as long as you're only multiplying. There's no such this as left to right in math you 30 iq chimp. go back to 3rd grade you fucking moron
>6 / 2(1+2)
6 / (2*1+2*2)
6 / (2 + 4)
6 / 6 = 1
To clarify, if it were written as 6/2(1+2), then it is assumed that 2(1+2) is in brackets, so it would be (2(1+2)). The order of multiplying and dividing is done left to right in this case since there are no implied brackets. This can be seen through some countries using BEDMAS instead of PEMDAS, (B for brackets, same as parenthesis, just a different name depending on country) the MD are switched, meaning that multiplication does not always come first, only when there are assumed brackets.
Right, only when it's written on top like this:
since there are assumed brackets on the bottom. Multiplication and division have the same priority, although division often comes first since it's usually written in the way above
I can tell that a lot of you never got past college algebra, people here are still relying on their patchy knowledge of PEMDAS.
I used to be part of the 1 crowd a while ago. I understand what you guys are thinking, but the PEMDAS acronym is misleading.
Division and multiplication are part of the same step. In the case of this problem, we must go left to right.
The answer is 9. I had to swallow my pride with an aspirin.
>Is this what math students discuss in their free time?
No, this shit is for dumbasses.
Most math students don't even recreational math. I do though, which is probably why I'm published and they aren't.
Order of operations is literally some fifth grade bullshit.
Parenthesis first. Multiplication and division next left to right.
This is the hardest you can come up with? I was doing this in the 5th grade. And that was the first day.
HEY GUYS LOOK AT THIS ONE
CAN WE ALL GET ALONG NOW?!?!?
Not really something you learn about in countries that use PEMDAS since you learned to do mult first always. But here multiplication isn't said to always go first, so to get around it, when something is written as
you treat it like there are brackets around the bottom.
Where the fuck do you morons get one? You can punch this into google and get the correct answer. I didn't need to but just to prove a point https://www.bing.com/search?q=6%2F2%281%2B2%29%3D&pc=MOZI&form=MOZSBR
Holy shit do we need an educational overhaul.
Holy shit OP...after reading half of the damn answers on here I instantly feel better about myself...thanks for this. Also you dumb fucks need to brush up on your shit math skills.
>Doesn't provide with his version of the answer
None of you seem to understand that pemdas or bemdas are merely conventions, and in this case, ways of solving arithmetic expressions. Due to the lack of arithmetic operators, the expression is ambiguously written and is left open to interpretation and the answer is moot. Nice try /b/.
Mate get that three out of the brackets! That's your MISTAKE FFS!
The order of operations doesn't work that way. Division and multiplication are part of the same step. You have to go left to right with the step, which would make the answer 9.
>tries to validate self worth on an anonymous website
>this anon is embarrassing to the human race
Where ever you are I am sending negative thoughts that accumulate into dead maggots in your pee hole for how stupid you sound
IF YOU GET 1 HAS THE ANSWER GET THE THREE OUT OF THE BRACKETS AFTER YOU ADD THE NUMBERS IN THE BRACKETS!!!!!
p: stuff inside parenthesis. 6/2(3)
e: there aren't any exponents
md: multiplication and division, left to right as tiebreaker: 3(3) = 9
as: no addition or subtraction
answer = 9
pic fucking related
>its basic calculus
no, it's algebra. algebra is the study of operations. calculus is discerning the rate of change of an object in motion slowed by friction, drag coefficients, gravity, etc.
"You fucks" , if you're gonna insult people you fag, at least get the correct study of maths before you try to speak with authority. down syndrome retard. the tautology there is on purpose
Huh, can't believe I didn't think about that. I guess the spacing between the ÷ and the 2 made me think 2(1+2) was one entity.
Very nice quads btw.
And pic related. I know calculators are unnecessary here though..
There's a reason why it's 9. There's actually three good ones, called in order:
The Multiplicative Property of Equality
The Commutative Property of Equality
And The Multiplicative Identity of Equality
No. The answer is nine. That is all.
Care to elaborate? Enlighten me with your 5th grade maths skills. Pemdas isn't the holy grail. You don't seem to understand what ambiguous means. Why do you think people ALWAYS derive two different answers to these problems? Because two interpretations exist.
The problem changes depending on how the division sign is interpreted. It is generally accepted to use it in the first way. The answer is 1.
To all of the faggots who are saying the solution is 1...
Oh, well thank you.
You as well!
If 1/a*b = 1/(a*b) then how would you simplify (1/a)*b?
Is it not true that (1/a) = 1/a?
This is big boy, American mathematics over here btw. I learned it in 8th grade, in my public school.
The problem as it is written is 6÷2(1+2) , the ÷ cannot be substituted with a fraction bar because they have different ranks on the order of operations. It is an illegal math move to do this. The bar ranks with parentheses, ÷ is interchangeable with *. therefore the problem must be solved as 6÷2(1+2) NOT 6 (over) 2(1+2) we do the parentheses first, so 6÷2(3), the parentheses are now no longer relevant, because the number inside is in it's simplest form. Every single number has implied parentheses around it.
or even converting the division to multiplication by a reciprocal (a legal math move)
(6)(1 (over) 2)(3)
are all correct ways to write this problem and mean exactly the same thing. Using pemdas, where md and as are interchangeable, we work from left to right, so (3)(3) or
DIFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD HAVE DIFERENT WAYS OF SOLVING EQUATIONS....
>MATH IS AN OBJECTIVE SCIENCE
Yeah you completely did the pemdas wrong there for one...
= 48 / 2 (9+3)
= 48 /2 (12)
= 24 (12)
it's the same either way. you did the M before the D but the division comes first on the equation. It doesn't go P>E>M>D>A>S in that order it goes, P>E>MD>AS. MD and AS have equal priority, it's whichever comes first of those two operations on the line.... now please if you try regional differences, at least LEARN the other region first
no.... just no.... go back to remedial math and learn middle school algebra.
IT IS FUCKING 9. There is only one answer. Algebra has set rules for a reason, its the study of the science of operations. PEMDAS is an algebraic operation.
It's fucking PEDMAS you idiots. Divide and multiply have equal priority but you generally perform the operations from left to right when both are encountered in a problem.
The answer is fucking 9.
You're all fucking morons.
Go back to school.
Every fucking math thread on here tries to exploit the possibly ambiguous nature of the division symbol. Either that or trying to troll about dividing by 0. How about you show some intelligence and ask some intelligent math problems instead of this same old click bait math? Give us some differential equations or multidimensional limit problems or something like that.
If they're equivalent, which has precedence over the other one then? Which convention are you attempting to make use of? Some go left to right, some don't. Yes the nature of the problem is rudimentary, but the way it is written is ridiculous. If someone asked me to solve it, I would ask them which convention should I use, or to rewrite the problem in a stronger manner.
>gee that was hard guys.
it sure appears so since you got it fucking wrong you fucking clod.
you did multiplication BEFORE division. but pemdas doesn't read left to right, it's taught on a vertical priority checklist.
MD (which ever one comes up first when going left to right)
AS (which ever one comes up first when going left to right)
its fucking remedial algebra to do basic math operations, how the fuck can you get it wrong? are you a 12 year old schoolfag? or retard?
It's 9. We start in the () then we work from the beginning. So (1+2)=3. So the equation looks like this 6 / 2*3=y. Next we divide 6 by 2 giving us 3. So now the equation is this 3 * 3 = 9. Ta da basic math. To remember how to do this remember PEMDAS.
You, and all the other fags that came up with the same results are fucking idiots. Multiplication doesn't have priority over division, they are equals, so you solve from left to the right. I hope you fucking apes are trolling, for your own sake
if you use a vertical stack of basic maths, p e md as still apply, fraction simplification is division first, always, then you finish the simplification before applying the inner bracket/parenthesis then you finish the operation combining the bracket to the fraction if you use that method.
are you simple?? be honest. its not difficult to grasp basic math
it doesn't matter if its MD or DM because they are equivalent. its just whichever of those TWO appear first reading left to right. or if its in the form of division as a fraction. you always simplify the fraction first before using the bracket operations.
it's taught left to right in every country that learns it, but retards are too stupid to remember that and cling on to the PEMDAS/BEMDAS as the order without remembering the left to right rule
Who gives a flying fuck about PEDMAS or PEMDAS here's how this equation works.
Let's start with the base equation:
From this step all you do is simply the equation:
6 / 2(3)
All that this means is: 6 / 2 * 3
From here equations are read from left to right.
6 / 2 * 3
= 3 * 3
For the answer to be 1 the equation would read:
6 / (2(1+2))
its mind boggling how many people can't grasp literal addition and subtraction. because multiplication and division are just adding and subtracting a number by itself X amount of times. it doesn't get simpler than +/-
I swear this thread is some elaborate troll, Theres no way 4chan can't grasp it. we're supposed to be the internet nerd congregate in our own sovereign country website. but nerds can't do math anymore.
I swear theres a bullet laying around somewhere that is wishing to be in my brain.
This thread only proves that b is filled with 9 year olds. And yes I'm one of them but at least I can fucking use Google you retarded shitbuckets.
Folks it is 9, because you can write /2 as a multiplication with 0.5. Then you have 6*0.5*(1+2).
Then you add the contents of the braces and reorder. 6*3*0.5. Thats 18*0.5, which is 9 :D
Anyone getting something else than 9 is a SJW special snowflake genderfluid beedrill drag queen nigger. Go back to Tumblr.
>pic related. TI-nspires know their shit
Order of operations. Anyone who gets 1 is not an SJW, because they believe in order. Anyone else is the genderfluid fucknut. The 1'ers are the one's who are against such fluidity.
Fractions aren't numbers.
They're fractions of numbers.
Is every number one?
Instead of some bullshit equation, give us a math paragraph, like
