What answers do you guys get?
9 or 1?
I would think 1
What? Def 9. I don't understand how you can get 1.
Here it goes hah
I say 1 too, but hey...Someone will come out with BODMAS rule > * math laws and say 9.
This is elementary. Plus google will do the dam problem for you if you type it in the search bar. NOOOOOBS
yeah this is useless in the real world
parentheses first - 6/2(1+2)
now multiplication 2x3 - 6/2(3)
division - 6/6
And the answer is 1
I thought division had the same priority in the order of operations haha, math never really was my thing unless its dollars and cents.
you have to use order of operations
6/2(1+2) = 6/2(3)
Now we're left with multiplications and divisions which have the same priority, so we solve from left to right
6/2 = 3
3 * 3 = 9
Nope, after solving the parenthesis all of them have the same priority therefore it ends up
then we solve from left to right, because division and multiplication have the same priority, therefore it is 9
Say you had a / b(c)
How did you suddenly get a/b * c when it should have been 'a / bc' ?
I've looked at this very carefully for some time now, and I think you'll find the correct answer is I don't give a fuck
The answer is surely 1.
First of all you need to open the bracket. Basic BODMASS rule applies here.
Remember 2(1+2) is one part and therefore (1+2) needs to get multiplied by 2 instead of adding 1+2 and then multiplying it with the remainder of 6/2
Separate names with a comma.
