Re: 6÷2(2+1)=?

Following BODMAS
6÷2(2+1)=?
(2+1) = 3

6 ÷ 2 = 3

3 x 3 = 9

6÷2 ?(2+1)=?

It depends what do you put instead first ? If it's x then it's 9, if it's % then it's 1

If you write a simple SQL expression with this formula, it doesn't even work. You get an error. It's just a 'gotcha' question.
That being said, 9 is the correct answer.

Re: 6÷2(2+1)=?

Order of operations: follow them.

For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare

Parenthesis = the brackets

The way I see it, the 6/2 is basically a fraction in front of the parenthesis.
Therefore it is 3(2+1) = 9

Re: 6÷2(2+1)=?

Ohh...people should just called them brackets

Some serious math snobs in here, it's pretty much a trick question otherwise there wouldn't be a thread about it.
