answer is 9 obviously

40 replies

yes if u do acc to BODMAS

its poorly writen it can be both 1 and 9. its just ragebait to get people to write about how stupid the other party is while the profiles posting this profit from traction generated by responses

34 replies

no it's not, it is and only can be 9. Whatever maths system you use x(a+b) is equivalennt to x*(a+b) and is just a simplifiaction, therefore meaning 9 is the only correct answer since it's left to right when doing maths.

32 replies

But ÷ can indicate fraction like this too
6
—
2(2+1)
Simplified into 3/3 -> 1
Or it also #63
This whole equation is poorly written and I can't imagine something like this ever being on a professionally made test or some kind of competition. It looks more like poorly made simplification by a middle schooler if anything else.
You can logically end up with both solutions.
But all of this doesn't matter because it's still a ragebait.

Your point is clearly false.
For 6÷2(2+1) to be equal to
6
------
2(2+1)
it would have to be writen
6÷(2(2+1))
Basic maths, even if it's ragebait, 1 can't be the correct answer
/Closed

6 replies

Yea, basic maths, but if your result is 9, then you had to express the problem as
(6/2)*(1+2)...
The problem is basically 6/2x not (6/2)*x
Edit: So we understand. We have the "2x" as a group together, not that we actually account for the unknown, as it's a example how it is taken not the problem itself.

5 replies

No it is not a "group" together, read #69 again,
(6/2)*(1+2) is equivalent to 6/2*(1+2) is equivalent to 6/2(1+2) and however you write it, priority order is from left to right meaning that it equals to 9.
There's is no such thing as "taking it this way"

4 replies

The way the expression is type is supposed to be:
6
----------
2*(1+2)
And in no way like this you are going to get 9. And this is the exactly what's the expression supposed to do, it's done like this so people argue who is dumber.
In test you will get either what I typed. or:
1) (6/2) * (1+2)
2) 6 / [2*(2+1)]
In all of these you exactly know the answer.
However in what is written I go with first choice as there's the symbol of "÷"

3 replies

Yes I do agree that the expression is wrote in a "bad" manner and is a poor bait, but it shoudn't be because 9 is actually the only correct answer despite it being ambiguous. In fact as you stated, 1) or (6/2) * (1+2) is the same as 6/2 * (1+2)

2 replies

No it's not the same. (6/2) * (1+2) and 6/2 * (1+2)
must be
(3)*(3)
and
6/2*(3)
Those are 2 different expressions that aren't the same, but SHOULD lead to the same conclusion. But they doesn't as you can see this thread (Because the 2nd is just written badly). Especially when the "÷" is used, where for example I was taught that left side of expression is upper dot & the right side is bottom one.

Nice 0/8 answer again. Read his article. He said 9 is the answer even if it's poorly writen, which surprisely enough, is what I say since the beginning.
Don't try to turn your point around, your point is "yes both are possible answer".
Every singe correct mathematician, the article I linked, the wikipedia you linked, everybody just tells that the correct answer is doing the division first even if it's poorly writen.
But yeah since you search the article to find 3 lines that were not even agreeing with your point I didn't expected much self reflexion

If 6/2(1+2) is definitely 9 even if it's poorly written, why does my Casio outputs 1? And also several other calculators? Also, in a textbook of say, physics, if you see an one line expression written like F = mGR / nT (not a real formula, just an example), how would you interpret that? What about some term like 1/2a or 1/ab? Also look at this interesting result: wolframalpha.com/input?i=6%2Fab+for+a+%3..

There is no point using a nuanced argument with this NPC, the reason for your calculator doing it a particular way is described in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_operation.. under the Mnemonics section and Calculators section
Pretty sure this guy is just baiting because you'd have to have severely impaired reading comprehension not to understand that everything he or I has linked directly states that the expression is ambiguous and therefore has no answer unless you enforce arbitrary rules such as left to right or division before multiplication e.t.c.

you clown you stopped answering a single of the argument I used however I debunked every single one of your """arguments"""" so stop baiting and don't talk if you have nothing to add. At least we're having an interesting discussion, opposed to the one with you where you showed 0 good argument so go sleep and let the real man talk

It's funny that you're math understanding is so bad that you think I admitted I'm wrong. It just shows that you're too dumb to get the point and understand that we are not even discussing the same point.
Again, reread our discussion, it ended with me debunking one by one your arguments and reusing your own source to show how ignorant you were.

1 reply

Go to sleep man my cheese aint gonna make itself.

Funny enough, I also have a casio and 6÷2(1+2) is equal to 9.
For the point, of the textbook, even if I doubt it to be written in a simple line, it's a question of convention. For basic calculus with only number, there's no doubt between mathematician and the answer is obvious for everybody. However simplicity in current maths allow and consider this error as acceptable. This point is detailed here :
fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ordre_des_op%C3%A9..
"Thus this 3/2x operation is in fact a simple unique division of the number “3” by the number “2x” and in no case can this way of seeing, widely used in the scientific community, serve as a reference or model in the calculation of 3/2(1+2) where here 2(1+2), which should in reality be written 2×(1+2), is indeed a calculation to be carried out and cannot be assimilated to the number “2x”"
It also answer your point about 1/2a and 1/ab, that wolfram alpha consider as 1/(2a) because majority of people write is like that because it is simplier to but fraction like that in wolfram alpha.
Here if you want to look at two interesting results :
wolframalpha.com/input?i2d=true&i=6%C3%B..
wolframalpha.com/input?i=6%2F3*3
Is is widely accepted that the symbol / can serve as the simplification of a fraction (when only letters are involved, not when there is only number), however with ÷ there is not an once of doubt.
Anyway that was nice to answer there was finally interesting arguments instead of malding british rant

2 replies

So I also went through all Calculus classes in my University. My problem with what you're saying is that I don't think this "problem" was ever a thing in our classes, simply because that's not how we write expressions. I just googled "multivariable calculus exercises" and the first result for me was this math.berkeley.edu/~cannizzo/Fa14_Math53/..
I didn't read everything, but I cannot see some sloppy usage of implied multiplication. The most I can see, which I expected, was something like dy/dx, which is so obvious because of how much we use that notation that we don't even wonder what does that mean. So I cannot say for certain what does 1/ab in Calculus mean simply because this was a non-existant problem for me.
But okay let's go back to precedence. I don't have a problem with a/b*c, I feel like its convention is pretty much universally left to right. I do with implied multiplication, which will depend on the context or which calculator/program I'm using. It's hard to put in a comment my whole opinion about it, but I kinda agree 90% with this video that I found if you're interested: youtu.be/4x-BcYCiKCk
So basically I'm on the "both answers are possible, but it really doesn't matter because it's just a design issue with the problem" team.

good question

people became salty just because you pointed out the truth lol.
hltv "mathematicians" malding

its kinda ambiguous as the '÷' isnt rly that mathematical,
everyone know brackest first so your left with 6÷2(3)
which is essentially the same as 6÷2x
now this is very ambiguous as to whether you count 2x as its own object or as 2*x
All that being said, the best approach in my mind is to consider a multiply symbol between 2 and (3)
thus giving an answer of 9

3 replies

There is nothing ambiguous, 6÷2x or 6÷2*x is literally the same expression and in both cases it's the division first because it's left to right

2 replies

if u read, 2x could be interpreted as its own object. if u redefine y = 2x as an object then it would read, 6÷y thus giving 1. Anyone who does maths past the age of 16 will never use the '÷' symbol and instead write using fraction to remove ambiguity

this again?
I'll answer again then: both answers can be true. In some contexts and calculators/programs implicit multiplications can have a higher priority than divisions or explicit ones. In others, it has the same priority. In this case, writing a one line problem using implicit multiplication is just a bad choice of writing, made solely so it's not clear, so it really doesn't matter math wise. This is not gonna be on your tests or real life problems.

Nah man... it would be just bad teaching. As I said 2 answers are possible. Literally if I put this on my calculator it outputs 1, but in windows calculator it's just 9 (actually I just checked and it automatically puts in the * for you). So what would they even teach kids by asking them that? At most they could ask something like 3-6/2*(1+2) to check if they understand the correct order so they can learn which rules calculators and programming languages follow maybe, but not a/b(c).

math overrated

this pops up each year and everytime people just argue pointlessly, can we just agree on the fact that this question is badly structured? it purposely creates doubt on the fact that multiplication and division have equal precendence and then people argue over the things they were taught in school, there is a reason why you dont use the ÷ symbol beyond elementary and middle school

idiot its 9

post is complete bullshit, shortened version of multiplying should be used ONLY when there can't be any misunderstands

I didn't need to use ÷ symbol since primary school. Since then division (by x for example) was always shown as multiplication (*1/x).
So that whole issue seems just pointless and stupid to me.

rent due tweet

Its not math as it is incorrect.
6÷2(1+2)=?
It doesn't make sense.
6÷2(3)=? Thats not math. It is missing ÷ or * or + or -
6÷2(3)=? is equal to saying "this is math: 3(3)=?"
This is correct form depending what you want to do with 6÷2
6÷2*(1+2)=9
6÷2+(1+2)=6
6÷2-(1+2)=0
6÷2÷(1+2)=1
It depends what u want to do with "6÷2"

4 replies

6÷2(3) is exactly equivalent to 6÷2*3, the * is implicit. E.g (1+2)(1+1) = 3*2 = 6
Now since ÷ and * have the same order of precedence, in the same way, that + and - do, it is not clear in this expression which should be done first (6÷2) or (2*3) anybody that says otherwise is objectively wrong. That is why the expression 6÷2*3 is ambiguous and therefore does not have an answer.
Some calculators and programming languages get around this by adopting arbitrary conventions such as going left to right (in this case ÷ then *) or choosing one of ÷ or * to have a higher order of precedence despite them in the purely mathematical world being of the same rank.
(this entire thread can be understood with this en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_operation..)
