As written, the expression is ambiguous.

It's sad that so many people are incapable of properly applying such simple rules of mathematics.
9 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 8/7/12 - 3:39:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think its more that most people never need to use these math rules in everyday lives and forgot them as they (including me) forgot who was buried in Grant's tomb.

^^You really don't remember the order of operations? I feel like middle and high schools do a really good job of pounding those pneumonics into our brains.

I feel like I learnt it a lot earlier than high school age.

What if the question was put 6÷2*(1+2). Would you still get the same answer?

The equation is not relevant for probably 99% of the people. Yes, I remember this but Im a dork majoring in finance. Its kind of like asking someone to diagram a sentence. I no see da purpose for that.

is it really left to right?
6 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 1/2/16 - 9:23:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
BODMAS is part of the small chunk of math I remember from school.

6÷2 (1+2) brackets first so 6÷2 (3)
6÷2 (3) then devision so 6÷2 =3(3)
3(3) multiply so 3x3 is 9.

6 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 1/2/16 - 9:25:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
the multiplication and the division have equal precedence at 6/2(3)
6 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 1/2/16 - 9:28:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
multiplication is division.

dividing by a number is the same as multiplying by a fraction.
6 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 1/2/16 - 9:29:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
like how subtraction is addition with a negative number.
6 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 1/2/16 - 9:46:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
right to left?

left to right?

So if I owed you $20, I can take it off of you?

I gave it to you but in a negative value.....
6 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 1/2/16 - 4:38:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
NEGATIVE NUMBERS ARE ENTIRELY DIFFERENT THAN POSITIVE NUMBERS. LIKE PERFECTLY OPPOSITE.
6 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 1/2/16 - 5:16:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
IF THEY ARE OPPOSITE THEN THEY ARE NOT THE SAME.

THEREFORE SUBTRACTION IS NOT THE SAME AS ADDITION.
MULTIPLICATION IS NOT THE SAME AS DIVISION.


can we stop shouting now???
6 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 1/2/16 - 9:31:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
NEVER
6 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 1/4/16 - 3:02:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
