multiplication by juxtaposition and parentheses operations share the same hierarchy. quit arguing. fucking retards.

48/2(9+3)

Do the parentheses

48/2(12)

left to right

48/2*12

24*12

288

having them evaluate an expression like:

6/2(3)

that is too ambiguous for any reasonable mathematician ever to write.

And no matter what the rule, we would still constantly see students

write things like "1/2x" meaning half of x, so we'd still have to make

reasonable guesses rather than stick to the rules."

6/2(3) is ambiguous

not only that, what you said implies that you have poor critical reading skills. dr. math says 6/2(3) is ambiguous...you clearly said that "multiplication by juxtaposition" (as if its some sort of special multiplication) takes precedence over division. under that pretense, 6/2(3) is not ambiguous and would simply equal 1, but no, you would be wrong.

youre a loser. stop trying to validate your existence.

April 10, 2011 @ 18:21:06 PM

you must be on some william shatner shit if you can get 288 from that.

April 10, 2011 @ 19:08:12 PM

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.

Brackets, Exponent, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction

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

Therefore, 288 is what you want.

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.

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

April 10, 2011 @ 21:06:35 PM

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

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.
