Normal people: >parentheses have higher precedence than * and / >* and / have higher precedence than + and - >if encounter multiple operations of same precedence I'll just execute them from left to right >25 / 5 * (2+3) >5 * 5 >25
Amerifats: >MUH PEMDAS!! >Multiplication is stronger than division!! >5(2+3) is not the same as 5 * (2+3)!! Former is stronger because fuck you! >25 / 5(2+3) >25 / 25 >1
The obelus is a shit symbol because it is so ambiguous. The actual answer could be either because we don't have enough information to determine the (2+3) is being multiplied by the 25 or 5. This is why we use a vinculum bar to represent division in mathematics rather than an obelus.
