i go to collenge to! &)
and i does maths sometimes to!

actually I'm a physics major and I've been doing long division before I could even read. eat a dick faggot.

youre a loser. stop trying to validate your existence.
Apr 10, 2011 @ 18:21
you must be on some william shatner shit if you can get 288 from that.
Apr 10, 2011 @ 19:08
really though uclaboy, come see me when you've taken partial diff eqs at a more prestigious school and THEN try telling me that they're the same type of expression.

I'm quite embarrassed that I'd ever get this riled up over a math problem, but some dudes are just straight retarded.


the answer is 42 doe.

288. im asian!

2 my friend.


qft. And that's the order of operation. You must not be very familiar with the order.

I grew up on PEMDAS so I multiply before I divide always. I got 2.


Lmaooo all of you guys following this, it's not your fault. You were simply taught wrong (or you didn't pay attention).
I was taught when doing PEMDAS (which is the same as Order of op ?),) when you get down to the M and D, you simply do whichever comes first in the problem. You do not always multiply first. Then, you get down to the A and S. You do whichever comes first in the problem, not automatically addition first.

Therefore, 288 is what you want.

division and multiplication are ranked with the same priority as is addition and subtraction.

the way it is written, the answer is 288. distribution is not a rule, so you don't do that first before you do order of operations. you first do whatever is in the parentheses.

terms that are on the outside of the parentheses are not part of the parentheses. otherwise in 2(9+3)^2 you would multiply the 2 into the (12) before you did the exponent because parentheses come before exponents in the order of operations. therefore the (9+3) does not belong to the 2 in the original equation. it belongs to the 48.

the answer is 288.

Division is not always first. Whichever the problem presents from left to write (between division and multiplication) first, comes first. In this case it is division

you still didnt get rid of the parenthesis before you divided.


parenthesis here acts like multiplication,
and only the things inside the parenthesis go first, hence there is just a number (12), there is no more to do.
so..... division first

the 2 is not a part of the parentheses. all the work inside the parentheses is done. restart with order of operations.

Ahhhhhh. Okay, I get it.

voted for 2 but then realized this is a tricky equation. I'm getting 288 if you were to do it correctly by hand. Obviously calculators work by lines according to their programming and dont know jack about orders of opperations

Answer is 288
Apr 12, 2011 @ 14:22

the ti-86 is newer than the 85 so it's 288

easy.

answer is 288

you divide than multiply left to right
