Looks like someone paid attention in middle school then just said fuck it after they got to algebra. The answer is 1 because of the distributive property, solving the parens correctly requires you to distribute the values attached to the parens, in this case the 2, then solve parens, and continue on from there.

>>

To anyone getting the answer 9 you are very nearly right and I can explain why you are wrong.

You have followed the order of operations correctly as it is written, however, solving a bracket or parenthesis does not just mean solving the equation within it, it also requires you to solve the multiplication associated with the parenthesis. Remember 2(1+2) means 2 x (1+2). This type of multiplication is considered as solving the parenthesis, not regular multiplication.

If you would like a word problem to give you a real world example we can create one for the equation.

6 / 2(1+2)

You are delivering newspapers, You have been given the exact number you need to finish your route. There are two semi-detached houses left and each one has 2 mailboxes and one mail slot. How many newspapers go into each one?

The answer is 1. In the parenthesis the 1 refers to the 1 mail slot in a door, the 2 refers to the two mailboxes on the wall. Out side the parenthesis there is the number 2 which indicates that there are two semi-detached houses with the exact same mail box configuration. 6 is the number of newspapers you have that need to be distributed.

Don't feel bad, this is a public school failing, not your own.

>>

9...

>>

>>717146147

9 is correct using PEMDAS, which should always be used unless the source of the problem explicitly says so.

>>717153030

That is where you are wrong. The parenthesis are solved completely which means solving the inner equation and then the multiplication associated with it if there is any.

>>

Ok so we all know the first thing you do is add 3 and 1. Now this is where most make a mistake. You don't multiply 2 by 3, because you're supposed to go from left to right when your left with multiplication and division so it'd be 6/2*3 which equals 9.

>>

>>717153225

Where did you learn this false information?

>>717153151

That is not what is written. You added the multiplication symbol yourself and mucked it up.

Depending on the formula's intention, space between the 2 & parenthesis has an implied priority. If it was 2*(1+2), then you'd be correct. PEMDAS is not used all the time. There is no right way to do math. In most of the computer code I write, the answer is 1 because of the implied multiplication priority of sticking two objects together with no symbol. I'd have to vote for the answer being 1. If it was written differently, then I'd say it was 9. I think google's calculator is nonstandard.

>>

>>717152539

Fucking thank you. Parenthesis and anything associate with the parenthesis comes first dumb fucks

>>717153413

>>

>>717153884

Anything before an parenthesis you multiply with what's inside the parenthesis.

>>

>>717153352

>>717153515

It isn't false information. It is a simple application of logic. Re-read the word problem and you will understand why the equation is written the way it is and why solving parenthesis includes its own multiplication.

PEDMAS is a grade school mnemonic acronym to help children understand the basics of the order of operation. At that level of education they never give a problem to be solved that have multiplications tied to a parenthesis, they just add in parentheses between addition and subtraction.

If you are still confused ask yourself why the equation was written this way and apply a real world application. The multiplication of 2 and the parenthesis is intrinsic and they can not be arbitrarily separated without incorrectly affecting the outcome.

Using the example of the word problem from before, the order of operations as you understand them asks you to count the number of mailboxes and mail slots, then divide the 6 newspapers between the two semi detached houses and then multiply the number of newspapers by the number of mailboxes and mail slots.

Obviously that outcome makes no sense. It is a simple way of demonstrating that the form of the equation is not arbitrary. If the parentheses have a multiplication associated with them, it must be calculated immediately after solving for the equation within them.

>>717145426

you've got a standard operator in the same formula as a juxtapositional multiplier. This is lazy notation, and any undergrad who still thinks PEMDAS rules all will get confused. The correct answer is 1. Because a juxtapositional multiplier is technically part of the parenthetical operation.

tl;dr the real answer is 1

>>

>>717145426

The answer is obviously 1

>>

>>717151068

PEMDAS doesn't take into account juxtapositional operators

>>

>>717154654

The problem as it is written is 6Ã·2(1+2) , the Ã· cannot be substituted with a fraction bar because they have different ranks on the order of operations. It is an illegal math move to do this. The bar ranks with parentheses, Ã· is interchangeable with *. therefore the problem must be solved as 6Ã·2(1+2) NOT 6 (over) 2(1+2) we do the parentheses first, so 6Ã·2(3), the parentheses are now no longer relevant, because the number inside is in it's simplest form. Every single number has implied parentheses around it.

6Ã·2(3)

(6) Ã·(2)(3)

6Ã·2*3,

or even converting the division to multiplication by a reciprocal (a legal math move)

(6)(1 (over) 2)(3)

are all correct ways to write this problem and mean exactly the same thing. Using pemdas, where md and as are interchangeable, we work from left to right, so (3)(3) or

3*3= 9

Just because something is implied rather than written does not give it any special rank in the order of operations.

The problem in it's simplest form, with nothing implied would look like this:

(1+1+1+1+1+1 (over) 1) Ã· (1+1 (over) 1) * ((1(over) 1) + (1+1 (over) 1))

From here, nothing is implied, This again, works out to 9.

If the symbol '/' was used this whole debate would be ambiguous since that symbol can mean "to divide by" or it could mean a fraction bar.

HOWEVER, because the Ã· symbol is used, it can not be changed to mean a fraction bar because that would change the order of operations and thus the whole problem, you can't change a symbol to mean something because you want to, in doing so you are changing the problem.

Once and for all, the answer is 9.

False. it's lazy notation. left-to-right only applies to addition/subtraction. NOT to multiplication or division. tard

>>

>>717157702

the dot is often used to represent multiplication instead of X because X is often used as an algebraic variable.

You are correct, though,the dot denoting multiplication is redundant because of multiplication by juxtaposition which simply means because they are side by side they are multiplied. The kicker is juxtapositional multiplication means that this is solved at the end of the parenthesis stage and no in the division/multiplication stage.

Cool right?

No its not you fuck tard. The only time you dont to left to right is if parenthesis, brackets or exponents change it.

once more for the people in the back:

juxtapositional multiplication IS PART OF THE PARENTHETICAL OPERATION

PEMDAS my dudes

6Ã·2(1+2)

P - 6Ã·2(3)

Forget E

M - 6Ã·2Ã—(3) = 6Ã·6

D - 6Ã·6 = 1

Forget A and S

It's not that hard.

>>

>>717145426

It depends. Is 2(3) a multiplication operation, or a parenthetical operation?

>>

>>717159198

right answer, wrong method...

>>717159198

That's not how PEMDAS works, my dude.

Answer is 9.

people here are idiots, I swear, parenthesis and roots first!

>>

>>717159596

I sort of feel like this entire thread is trolls trolling trolls at this point. No engineer in his right mind would work with an ambiguously written equation like that, and would ask for clarification

>>

>>717145426

seen this thread before. Don't even need to evaluate it, the answer is 9

Agreed but its only abiguous because of fucking idiots who dpnt have slight autism.

SHOCKER!

people in different parts of the world have different notation rules for maths. some of those people consider notation of the form a/bc to be lazy and ambiguous. Some people even use notation where one thousand is written as 1.000,00 instead of 1,000.00

*gasp*

>>

The answer is OP when rounded to the nearest cuck

>>

>>717159726

Juxtapositional multiplication of the parenthesis is solved in the first step of the order of operations, not in the multiplication/division step. It is an intrinsic part of the parenthesis and can not be moved arbitrarily.

read the word problem here for a real world example of how it is 1 and not 9.

>>717152887

>>717154654

>>

>>717159292

>>717159377

Shit. Sorry bout that.

>>

>>717157178

So his entire argument is "I think it's stupid to do math from left to right, and because there's no symbol it must mean that multiplication comes first."

And he's entirely wrong.

>>

6/ 2*1+2*2

6/10= some decimal

>>

>>717159885

na, it's honestly taught that to include standard division with a factor is lazy and ambiguous because ameritards can't math properly

>>

>>717159777

Are you stupid? It's not ambiguous, its a proper equation with clear rules. The only people getting this wrong are fucktards who don't know 4th grade math.

>>

>>717159777

It's not ambiguous and an equation can be written different ways and still get the same result.

Juxtapositional multiplication is solved when accounting for parenthesis. Knowing that the equation can only be solved one way.

>>

>>717160172

How the fuck does (2Ã—1+2Ã—2)= 10?

>>

>>717160086

no, the argument is weather a(b+c) is all parenthetical or not

(spoiler alert: it is)

>>717160172

PEMDAS motherfucker

>>

>>717160057

I do agree with the interpretation that multiplication written as juxtaposition should be regarded as having higher precedence that multiplication written with $\times$... unfortunately this is not the case in any programming language I have ever seen, and only sometimes the case in written mathematics.

So 99/100, juxtapositional multiplication has no special priority beyond normal order of operations.

>>

>>717160603

um... what? I'm not really sure what you're getting at

>>

A math equation.. What do I win?

>>

>>717160359

I'm pretty sure then it would be denoted as

(a(b+c))

That's how it works in programming. I think computers are better at math than you.

>>

>>717160804

programming and maths notation are two different animals

>>

>>717160690

>hurr durr I use big words so people will think im smarter than I am when really I'm a fedora wearing autist as clearly shown by my complete lack of mathematical knowledge.

>>

>>717161018

you're missing the point entirely. it's not about how would you program a computer to do it, it's if the entire statement is considered (mathematically) parenthetical

>>

>>717161130

The lack of mathematical knowledge makes him a fedora wearing autist?

I think you've got it backwards. Normies aren't good at math, autists are.

>>

>>717161130

lol, I bet you wear a trillby when you win your internet fights, dont' you?

>>

>>717160603

Didnt realize you were same fag. But in that case your still getting it wrong for saying mult/divide doesnt operate from left to right when it does.

>>

>>717161218

Which is basically arguing semantics. If computers, which are built and function entirely through mathematical processes, need special extra instructions to consider a juxtapositional multiplication to be a higher priority than normal order of operations, than there is no reasonable justification for people to impose an interpretation on an equation with no special instructions.

So I won?

>>

>>717160403

what was the big word? juxtaposition? It means side by side or to switch places with something else. A word is not big just because it has an X in it.

>>

Figured out why people are having a hard time with this.

We all know that y(x)=y*x, right?

BUT this does not mean () and * are interchangeable.

If the problem states that y(x), then {y(x)} is all apart of the parenthesis in PEMDAS.

Therefore if you are in a situation where you are using the parenthesis as multiplication it is still of higher ranking on PEMDAS than all other mult./dv. in the equation.

People ARE taught differently in different schools so the correct answer is dependent on where you live. This personally makes me want to kill myself, but it makes more sense if you just ignore y(x)=y*x and keep the parenthesis as parenthesis in a multi-step equation.

>>

>>717161267

Actually autism doesn't make you automatically good at math. Your fucking IQ is so low, im surprised you can remember to breath.

>>

>>717161793

>I like to be a twat and use words that sound fancy instead of being straight forward and just saying it easily

>>

>>717161845

You're bad at logic.

The statement doesn't presume that having autism makes you good at math, it says that if you're good at math, you probably have autism. Totally different thing.

>>

Everyone pack it in, this thread is now all trolls or retards.

The answer is 1 and if you can't see why then you have an uneducated opinion and need to kill yourself.

>>

>>717161818

Show your proof. I want to see a mathematica or wolfram article.

>>

>>717162833

Yeah, this pretty much proves that it's 9.

Unless you deliberately specify that the division encompasses all of 2(2+1), then it calculates as

(6/2)(2+1)

It's actually this retards. The bracket operations are done first. And the right part is in the denominator. The calculators don't understand this unless u put in the bracket. Trust me I'm asian

>>

>>717164006

You are the dumbfuck, I was actually saying you are fucking right (on this matter anyway)

>>

>>717162644

The problem with wolfram is that it ignores the way the equation was imputed. If it left the parenthesis as parenthesis its would be 1.

>>

>>717164364

Except that if you remove all of the parentheses except (2+1) it still resolves as 9.

Face it. You're wrong.

>>

>>717162644

https://www.purplemath.com/modules/orderops2.htm Read the second page.

>>

>>717164584

what? If you remove all parenthesis besides (2+1) you get the exact same equation, which if you enter into wolfram it does the same exact thing as before. You have proven nothing.

>>

>>717164592

And at the very bottom:

(And please do not send me an e-mail either asking for or else proffering a definitive verdict on this issue. As far as I know, there is no such final verdict. And telling me to do this your way will not solve the issue!)

So apparently this is a pretty longstanding debate in mathematics.

There's group A which says

"If you want a special operational order, use the symbols available to you."

And there's group B which says

"If I left symbols out it's obviously because I want to do it _this_ way."

I'm in group A.

>>

>>717165208

I'm group "I will solve how the equation states its symbols" which results in 1.

>>

>>717166236

Except that the entire problem is that the crux of the equation doesn't have a symbol, so there's Group A which wants there to be a modifier to generate that result, and Group B which is like "fuck it, this is the result"

>>

>>717148507

This guy gets it

>>

>>717145426

/b/ is retarded

One group says 1

The other says 9

When the true answer is to never reply at all

Imma go kms thanks everybody

>>

>>717166393

A symbol is any character with meaning, so you can't have an equation without symbols, dude. if you are referring to only the * / + - id say that there is a symbol, the (). When in context of how the () are used [in this situation], the problem would be shown as 6/(2*(1+2)). In theory that is the same as 6/2(1+2), but it prevents the switch from () to *.

>>

>>717158042

Thank you for that link. The notation is fucked making it a trick question as it can be solved either way. 1 or 9. The few of you going crazy over this obvious troll post are supreme autizmoes, you should be proud.
