Re: 6÷2(2+1)=?

The basic rule for multiplication and division are:

-Multiplication and division have the same priority
- Addition and subtraction have the same priority
- Multiplication and division have higher priority than the addition and subtraction
- Operations of the same priority are implemented from left to right if there is no brackets to change the priority

and that's the only rule I accept.


By these rules we have:

6:2·(2+1)= 6:2·3=3·3=9


Problem appeared because the obelus ÷. The obelus, the name for the symbol denoting “÷”, is argued by some to represent the division of all terms preceding it by all terms after it. The obelus supposedly separates the two components of the fraction, with the top dot representing the numerator and the bottom dot representing the denominator.

So they count like this:

(6)/(2·(2+1))=6/6=1

But ISO states that the obelus should not be used.


So the answer is 9.

Re: 6÷2(2+1)=?

How many times does this need to be explained. We all know it's 9. Some people are explaining it in such a convoluted way, talking about the "intent" of the author/questioner - seriously? :

It's pretty rudimentary in the UK to be able to solve equations like this while at school. If you wrote 1 as your answer you would get the question wrong and lose the mark.

Re: 6÷2(2+1)=?

i have a doubt.....i mean seriously......which is greater quantity 2 or -2? everyone will say 2.....

now when we divide a number(say 100) with the greater number(2), the resulting number should be less than that of what we get when we divide the same number(100) with the lesser number(-2), no?

then why do we get 50 in the first case when diving by the greater quantity(2) and -50 in the second case when dividing by lesser quantity -2?

Re: 6÷2(2+1)=?

then don't treat -2 smaller than +2......-2 is messing with +100 and devaluing it far better than +2......
