it's not bait retard I graduated high school
>It's an ambiguous mathematical notation episode
One could take it as 9-3/1/3+1 and then divide 3 by 1 and divide that by 3 again, arriving at the answer of 9
but that would be erroneous because the syntax of 1/3 stacked vertically indicates that it is to be taken as a singular value, not as a division operation with operands 1 and 3
you see the value of one third there, not an operation of 1 divided by 3
This what I did. Honestly if I'm wrong for some reason, idc. Got a degree in math, this shit means nothing, and is just used for trolling. Also wolfram say its 9, so maybe I am wrong.
why is order of operations still a meme? division comes first, so 3 divided by a third = 9. then 9 - 9 = 0, plus 1 equals 1. so cool, 11 people out of 61 decided to answer it correctly, and the other 50 people are either stupid, or are trolling. What probability statistics are you expecting to extract from 4chan on trolls vs non troll faggots?
oh, and by the way. I am literally the only person in this thread so far to answer the question correctly. The question is a yes or no question: can you answer some math bullshit correctly. The answer for me is yes. Someone else who doesn't know shit about math could conceivably say "no" and answer the questions correctly. But so far, no one has. So I'm the only person who as answered the question correctly. The answer is:
do you not understand fractions? think of "1/3" as a piece of pie. a big freaking cut of pie, a third of a pie. If you have 3 pies, how many of these big pieces of pie can you get? The answer is 9. The answer is not 1. Jesus Christ. Blood squiring out of my eye sockets.
Dumb ass, 9-3 = 6
9-3 =/= 3
That is where your math failed. Hold up nine fingers. Now put three fingers down. How many fingers are still up? The answer should be that you have 6 fingers remaining.
Three thirds equals 1 (1/3 +1/3 + 1/3 = 1). 6x3=18
Now add 1 (+1) to 18.
18 + 1 = 19
It's 1 you fucking retards -.-
(calculator way - wrong)
>>calc will read
What a lot of you fags got wrong.
Correct way (and how I did it was by using 1/3 as its rounded off 0.33)
Or for calculatorfags:
Fuck you got me...I guess I had forgotten the basics when taking Calculus I, Calculus II, Advanced Statistics, Linear Algebra 1, Linear Algebra II, Applied Computational Methods, Theoryof Mathematical structure...You know what...I am just going to let you and your middle school degree win this one. Well played sir
That's not how it works you fucking retard
What the fuck.. I didn't want to believe that besides faggots and cloppers, b/ was also full of actual retards. GL in life if u can't even do this.
To save your time:
Now gtfo and read. outists!
>realizes hes been schooled(for the first time in his life probably) and decides to resort to questioning the psychology of others when should really be looking into it himself
Are you fucking stupid? You literally changed the meaning of the whole equation. It was originally three divided by one third; your lack of parentheses changed it to three divided by one divided by three.
Oh look, it's this thread again. And look, the 4 same types of posts that always appear! It's like nothing ever fucking changes on this site.
Why do i even bother with this bullshit. It's like robbing a liquor store, getting arrested, getting sent to prison, ass-rape and all, and then the SECOND i get out of prison I try and rob that liquor store again.
Going on /b/ is literally just getting fucked in the ass in prison.
Nah, you're good. An equation literally *CANNOT* equal more than one number. Quadratic Equations have the beautiful variable x. x can equal 2 numbers, but the actual equation cannot.
Yes....it actually is.
how many times would you need to add 1/3 to get 3?
you might think the answer is three, but you'd bee fucking stupid, because 3 x 1/3 = 1.
So multiply that by 3. Magically, you get 9. Same with negatives.
Autistic level rises
You fucking jew, I can tell you changed the search bar without changing the input.
The 1/3 isn't inside the parenthesis in your input.
Wtf, 3/0.333 (or 3/(1/3) ) is 9.
3 divided by 1/3 = 3 times the inverse of 1/3 (just like every division. Eg. 4/2 = 4 x 1/2) so, 3/(1/3) = 3 x 3/1 = 3 x 3 = 9.
Then 9 - 9 + 1 = 1
how do you expect to get anywhere in life when you can't even enter an equation in wolfram alpha right
did...did you actually fucking edit this photo to prove yourself correct? You tried to warp the understanding of proper mathematics to boost your ego?
the pixelation around the numbers are different, and teh parenthesis prove that a completely different equation was entered.
Thanks /b/rahs, it was fun.
thanks, I think I actually learnt this for the first time today thanks to you and this post >>683529157
I'm not even retarded at maths, I got pretty high grades (A* at GCSE) but I guess this didn't come up much cos I have no memory of it at all.
