it's funny, got into the same ?? when reviewing my algebra book from high school. what's easy to miss when executing PEMDAS is that you do the "multiplication and division" step from left to right, not multiplication left to right then division left to right.
Orders of operation don't really help because different acronyms are taught. BODMAS and PEMDAS are both valid but have multiplication and division in a different order.
If multiplication takes precedence then the answer is 1. If division takes precedence then the answer is 9.
I think that the answer is 1 because the multiplication is implicit. You would always do implicit division (i.e. fractions) first so I think it should be the same for multiplication.
Neither takes precidence in either acronym, people are just stupid. They are on equal footing, just as addition and subtraction are. You go from left to right once all paranthesis, brackets, and exponents have been simplified.
You people are retarded. PEMDAS: Parentheses, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.
Do parentheses first
Next is Multiplication cuz there's no exponent
Next is division which leaves you with one
You people need to go back to high school math class you autists.
The left to right aspect of pedmas vs the propensity to multiply by two before dividing because the appearance of that part "touching". Really, OP is the faggot here, because he presented us an equation that has more than one interpretation. There should be an extra set of parentheses (6÷2)(1+2) then there is no doubt in the order of operations. Mathematics at this level should not have ambiguity. The ruse created by OP here is like the scene in Wayne's World 2 where he orders from the drive through of stan Mikita's, but OP is all butthurt when some of us fell for his faggotry
God fucking dammit you piece of low life scum nigger faggot retard hownmaby times do you have to post this stupid fucking question?
THE ANSWER IS ONE
DO NO POST THIS AGAIN GO TO SCHOOL LEARN ELEMENTARY MATH YOU STUPID FAG
>People give it special treatment
Just because they are stupid and need special treatment. It doesn't make them right.
They are the same, and here is the full version of it.
>(6*3)/2 by using the rule a/b*m=am/b
Just because people don't know basic arithmetic doesn't mean we should in anyway change things to accomodate their stupidity.
That is the wrong PEMDAS mate. It's setup like this
Parentheses then exponents and roots then multiplication and division then addition and subtraction.
If more of the same level appear you go from left to right.
You just got beaten by an autist. What about you learn your math.
If you autistically try to follow pemdas rules (or whatever variant you learnt in high school) you get 9.
But in most maths I've encountered since then the ÷ sign is rarely used and this problem is a probably a differently (read: badly) phrased version of
___6___ = 1
no i just hav such a low self esteem that i hav no confidence in any answer. also im retarded... c wat i did there bish?
Oh no I'm not excusing them for doing it, I've just noticed that every time this thread is made that is the major mistake. They simplify the paranthesis first as expected, but for some reason don't eliminate the paranthesis which is the fucking point if simplifying it first. They're retarded, no doubt about it.
PEMDAS sir! I'm sorry they didn't teach you that at your school full of mouth breathing morons, but it's what you do first. Yes, you can do it left to right bit with certain problems but this isn't such problem.
I think this answers our question
It isn't. If you want that you are looking for this expression
Which then continues like this.
If you look at it and follow the rule a/b*m=am/b it ends up looking like this
No it isn't. The only time you distribute through paranthesis like that is when there's a variable in the paranthesis. If no variable, you solve the equation in the paranthesis, and eliminate it, which leaves you with:
You are pretty dense. Here we go
The equation 6/2(2+1)=6/2*(2+1). In the first the multiplication is implicit, in the other it is directly noted. Just different notation. With me so far?
The notation 6/2(2+1) simply means you multiply the whole fraction (in this case 6/2) with the factor (in this case 2+1).
It follows the simple rule a/b*m=am/b. When you are using variables you can also have implicit multiplication, but that means they are part of the same segment.
And I know some people use the ":" or "/" as implicit notation for "everything after this is the divisor" or some shit. We simply follow the rules and don't use it as implicit notation to be precise. The only time where we use it is with multiplication because it shouldn't confuse anyone... yet here we are...
>Not realising a/b(m)=a/b*m since the parenthesis is redundant
Even Wolfram knows basic notation
The answer is 9.
The fact that some people get it wrong is not so bad.
The fact that they persist it's not, when they have the power of the fucking internet to verify it, is that bad.
Do you even know what the parenthesis are used for?
It literally means multiplication but given first preference while solving.Seriously consider taking elementary math again.
>mfw americans are so stupid they need to invent words for calculation order
its not fucking rocket science, lard balls
Hmm lets see... Well first we start with the parentheses...pic related
Please don't. I promise I'll stop drawing dicks.
The answer is 9.
PEMDAS is *sort of* correct, but it doesn't explain that multiplication and division hold equal priority when solving and so you do whichever one comes first when read from left to right, NOT multiplication and then division.
No it isn't.
I divide with (1+2) to reduce the equation
And it works the same way with 6/2*(1+2) because the multiplication sign is implicit.
6/2(1+2) brackets first
6/2(3) then multiple or divide, in the order they appear [division]
3(3) then multiply
And also the other way is still 9
Your second step
>(6(1+2))/2 would have been if the question was
Which is actually 6÷2/(1+2) which is
Did you see my calc post?
How can calculator be wrong bro?
As for the google answer which is gives 9 see this
Here is all the division rules
>a/b*m=am/b given b=/=0
>(a/b)/m=a/bm given b=/=0 and m=/=0
>m/(a/b)=m*b/a=bm/a given b=/=0 and a=/=0
To note, this is using fractions. (a/b)/m=a/b/m
>(a/b)(c/d)=ac/bd given b=/=0 and d=/=0
>(a/c)/(c/d)=a/b*d/c given c=/=0, d=/=0 and b=/=0
>a/b=ac/bc given b=/=0 and c=/=0
(a/b)+(c/d)=ad/bd+cb/db=(ad+cb)/bd given b=/=0 and d=/=0
And to note, (a/b)+(c/d)=a/b+c/d
I'll leave you now. These rigorous rules are used to teach and have been seen by many people. No problem has been found by them at all. They are rigorous.
I need my sleep. See ya
Can't tell if all the retards in this thread saying it's 9 are just b8 or legitimately retarded. If we rewrite the equation with the 6 in the numerator position and the rest of the equation in the denominator, will you still agree the answer is 9?
