Black people say the answer is 1 when white people say it's 9.

6/2 (2 + 1)
6/2 x 3
3 x 3
9

Are niggers truly dumb?
>>
>>736415456

How do you get 1 out of that?
>>
>>736415554
They're fucking multiplying 3 by 2 when you're supposed to divide after simplifying the parentheses.
>>
>>736415554
Doing all the multiplication first, 6 / (2*3) = 1
>>

>>736415554

2(3) = 6
6/6 = 1
>>
It's an issue regarding the order of operations. You use PEMDAS so you as the 2 and 1 in the parenthesis to get 3, then it's an issue of whether you divide the 6 by the 2 or multiply the 2 and the 3 first. You're supposed to divide the 6 by the 2 first because you do whatever comes first in the equation. Thus you multiply (6/2) and 3 to get 9 as your answer.
>>
>>736415554
Seems like the Casio fucked up and just ignored the first half of the problem.

6/2(2+1)
6/2*3
6/6
1

I have no idea why it did this, though
>>
>>736415456
the sign on the left one is a plus sign. it's 6+ and not 6/ as in the right one
>>
>>736415554
6/(2(2+1)) that's the actual set up you moron... you have to distribute the 2 into the parentheses. If you're treating 2(2+1) as a deniminator it is 1. If (2+1) is for the numerator it is 9.
>>

Forgot to mention, you're supposed to do division and multiplication during the same step. You're just supposed to do whatever comes first.
>>
>>736415456
order of operations and distributive properties,
2(2 +1) is a seperate entity from 6/
(4+2)\6 or 1
>>
no fucking one uses that division sign in calculations you retarded retards
>>
math ruel point is first () are solfed as multiply
>>
Just use the distributive property.
6/2(2+1) = 6/2(2) +6/2(1) = 12/2 + 6/2 = 18/2 = 9

a 4th grader could solve this correctly.
I'm starting to wonder who the dumb nigger is.

>>736416114
except that you didnt even use the distributive property correctly

Are you retarded? It's not a plus, and if it was a plus the answer would be 12.

6 / (2*2+1*2)

How did I use it incorrectly? The distributive property is that a(b+c) = ab+ac.

6/2 (2 + 1) parenthesis are treated as

3(3) only one number

the answer is one, what the fuck is wrong with you fucking retards?
>>
>>736416370
This.

6 / 2x
x = what's in the parentheses.

So, 6 / 6 .`. [ 2x = 2(2+1) = 2(3) = 6]

>>736416589
That'd be 6รท[2(2+1)]

or this
>>
>>736416613
If anyone is confused about this, they don't realize that parentheses are not actually used in mathematics to denote multiplication. Parentheses are a way to denote an algebraic variable. Anything can be entered into that parenthetical expression, but in the context of this particular expression it happens to be a constant.
>>
>>736416589
This.

How it'd be inputted depends on the calculator, tho. My TI-89 solves "6รท2(2+1)" like "(6รท2)(2+1)", which is the correct answer (9), but some shitty, lower end calculators will 'solve' it like you have written, "6/(2(2+1))".

This is the fucking problem with PEMDAS being taught to stupid people. They won't remember that multiplication and division have the same priority and are simply done from left to right.
>>
>>736416726
This is the only correct response.
>>
>>736415755

PEMDAS does not work that way its P OR E M OR D and A OR S left to right as they appear in the equation.

Wtf?
You dont enter your operations more clearly?
Use either 6/(2*(2+1))
or (6/2)*(2+1)
depending on what your intention is.
Jesus Christ!
>>
>>736417065
Fucking finally found a faggot who understands priorities. You read the problem left to right, like a book, IF the operations have the same level of priority. Mult is just another form of division, and vice versa. Just like addition is just another form of subtraction

For all of those who are getting 1

You guys are thinking about it wrong.

When we say 6/2, what we're really doing is 6 * 0.5.

So if we do it like that, it becomes 6 * 0.5 * (2+1)
Then 6 * 0.5 * 3
And finally 3 * 3 = 9
>>
>>736418025
You dumb nigger
6/2 = 3, not 2
>>
>>736415456
9 is the correct answer if you follow the rules for solving equations.
In Germany we've known these since primary school before the 21st century but by now kids probably just learn numbers from 1 to 70 virgins and some basic arabic vocabulary and grammar there.
>>
>>736418524

Yeah the order of operations means that division comes before multiplication in this problem

without an extra multiplication sign some calculators interpret it as one term as 6 over 2*(2+1)
that gives you 6over6 and therefore one. others interpret it as 6 over 2 multiplied by (2+1)
therefore giving you 9.

or differently written: 6/(2*(2+1)) and (6/2)*(2+1)
