"[1] 6/3(3+1)

Now your intuition because you see '÷' you say "DIVISION, let's do it!". Take a step back and notice these are two statement with two operators. Now today in convention we just say they are the same thing to ease issues, but it evades the purpose of the ÷ sign. Here is why upon discussing with a couple peers in education why they continue to use this ONLY at the elementary level.

It is about enforcing the concepts of division, not carrying out actual division. When you write it with the obelus, it is to separate the numerator and denominator, then carry out the operator. Meaning the left, and right terms are clustered together in two arguments. So this operates less like '/' and more like a clear division. It is strict division it seems."

Parens

Exponents

Multiply

Divide

Add

Subtract

Hrmm... looks like multiply comes before divide. So technically speaking you could read PEMDAS and still come up with 3.6.

REALLY what's wrong here is that the operations are ambiguous due to known cultural issues with the interpretation of order of operations. And the CORRECT way to deal with it is to not write it ambiguously.

In all my math studies from Algebra on, we never used the division sign because of the confusion. And instead wrote them as multiplication of reciprocals, which usually reduced to fractions.

Last time I actually seen the division symbol outside of places like this was middle school.

That's not what it means. If you have multiply and divide, you go from left to right.

It's the obelus mang.

Originally used for division in Teutsche Algebra by Rahn in 1628 er somethin'.

3(2) means nothing, it's the same as 3x2. So no, 3(2) does not take priority over 36/3. Therefore it's 58. I bet you're all fucking ameritards

Are people getting 10 trolling or just retarded? 36/2 goes first because division and multiplication have the same order of priority so left goes first.

Fractions were invented that we dont have to deal with unclear math.

>>

>>684313015

Multiplication/Divsion and Addition/subtraction are on the same level. So what you wrote should look like:

P

E

MD

AS

and since M/d and A/S are on the same level, you go left to right. Correct answer is 58.

WTF!

6*6 = 36

36/2 = 18

18*3 = 54

54+4 = 58

Y'all are retarded.

>>

when you first learn pemdas you should be taught that multiply/divide is always what happens first in the equation left to right. same with add and subtract, so the answer is 58

>>

>>684313744

True, but 3(2) includes parentheses, so you multiply that first.

>>

>>684314073

not true. 3(2) takes no priority. the bracket is already solved for, and is equivalent to 3*2.

>>

>>684314073

no, that's just there to show it is being multiplied. there is a difference between (3*2) and 3(2)

>>

>>684314073

No. If inside the parenthesis was another operation like (3+2) yes the parenthesis would go first. But 2(3) is just 2*3.

You do the exponents first, since 2(3) is really 2 x 3 its not a paranthese operation

I always love how you highschool dropouts get all smug and scream 'PEMDAS!' as if that's the crowning achievement of mathematics.

That fact that you have to memorize a 3rd grade mnemonic in order to solve this basic problem is proof enough that you people know jack shit about math.

its not a question of multiplication by juxtaposition- but one of the obelus having a different inherent meaning, in how the statement is parsed, than the solidus

Thanks!

>>684316718

10 its 100% correct

>>

>>684316346

tbh, i don't think the reasons behind why PEMDAS is the necessary order of operations is ever really taught. It is, however, given to us in an easily digestible way at an early enough age that it remains useful for years later. The only way you could go beyond using the mnemonic device would be to have a deeper understanding of math and its laws. But like I said, that stuff doesn't really get explained.

>>

>>684317128

can you give an example where the use of PEMDAS is flawed? just wondering

>>

>>684317128

Yes, absolutely.

That's why it should be taught.

You don't have to teach advanced Analysis, but some basic understanding of why the different operations work as they do and why working differently would cause problems.

>>

>>684317036

Uh huh, uh huh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

>>

>>684317420

It's not flawed in what it's supposed to be: an easy reminder about the order of opreations.

But barely anyone knows WHY there is even an order of operations and WHY it has to be as it is.

It would be sometimes better to teach that rather than a simple acronym.

>>

58

>>

>>684317420

I don't even know if it counts, but starting by saying "parentheses" and then changing it to "grouping symbols" later on because parentheses no longer covers it, but by that point you better damn have that shiz memorized and second nature.

>>

>>684317996

oh I thought PEMDAS also included the "why".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Division_(mathematics)

Yeah, this is why these stupid troll threads always use this one sign in a way that's ambiguous just to provoke these arguments.

>>

>>684318461

I didn't go to school in the US and PEMDAS isn't taught here, but whenever someone pulls out PEMDAS, it's quite obvious that they just remember the acronym, not the math behind it.

>>

People don't understand maths shorthand

2(3), or 2A for that matter isn't shorthand for

2 x 3 or 2 x A it's short for

(2 x 3) and (2 x A)

The brackets mean there is no ambiguity, that multiplication happens first.

>>684311182

Due the the space after the divide symbol, it should be.

So it's 10.

I don't understand how anyone is getting anything BUT 58.

PEMDAS is PE(MD)(AS), guys. Multiplication and Division occur first based on whatever is farther left, same with Addition and Subtraction. I feel like PEMDAS really fucked some people over, because they immediately assume MD and AS are the proper order because P and then E is. Think of PEMDAS as P E MD AS from now on.

why did you do the multiplication before the division when the division was left of the multiplication?

>>

>>684318964

The question becomes- how is the obelus parsed?

9-3÷(1/3)+1=?

is it

[9-3]÷[(1/3)+1]

or

9-[3÷(1/3)]+1

Modern notation SHOULD do away with this ambiguity, so why not look historically at the obelus's original use?
