Re: 6÷2(2+1)=?

It's 9.

If you want it to be 1 then write 6÷(2 (2+1)).

This problem is the same as 6 x (1/2) x (2+1).

PEMDAS is a lie. Multiplication and division happen at the same time. Addition and subtraction happen at the same time.

Re: 6÷2(2+1)=?

I thought it was 9 then felt like a dipshit when I saw all the 1's on the first page. Glad to see that TF's Mathematical Legend, Egalite is here to grace us with the correct answer and a math lesson.

Re: 6÷2(2+1)=?

Setting the equation equal to 1 and solving for k:
Quote:
6/k(2+1) = 1
k(2+1) = 6*1
k(3) = 6
k = 6/(3)
k = 2
Setting the equation equal to 9 and solving for k:
Quote:
6/k(2+1) = 9
k(2+1) = 6*9
k(3) = 54
k = 54/(3)
k = 18
k = 2 in the OP, ∴ the solution is 1.

Re: 6÷2(2+1)=?

This stupid question again. I want to find the person that created it and slap some sense into that fool. I hate dumb questions like this because it's not designed to test actual knowledge. If a developer wrote code as poorly formatted as this problem he would be working for some low level city office somewhere instead of making big bucks in the private sector.
But don't let me stop those of you from feeling smarter than others who thought the answer was 1. Carry on.

You do realize you're disagreeing with a professional mathematician here (Egalite) right?

Yes? I've been unfortunate enough to sit through debates of this type of problem in multiple math classes, so I'm cognizant of each argument. Both are logically sound IMO due to the horrific manner in which the equation is structured. I just happen to think that answering it with 1 is more appropriate.
