    Berkeley is home to dr Robert openhiemer. #1 public university in the world. Physics/math top 5. Nowhere near #50

    because pemdas is a convention with no meaning that our teachers tell us to solve easy shit. It aint real, it's a lie like everything we're taught in school

    Well, its not so much that Pemdas is a lie. Its just some bullshit that the school system created to simplify shit for kids who have trouble understanding how to do math. Actually, When I did the problem I wasnt even thinking about Order of Operations. I freestyled the math problem on some Beautiful Mind shit and got the right answer, which is 288.

    you know people dont know shit about math when they differentiate between division and multiplication or addition and subtraction.


    lol i've actually taken abstract algebra (rings and fields) in university.

    rings have two operations multiplication and addition. division is just multiplication of the inverse. note rings dont require multiplicative inverses. fields do though. substraction is just addition of the additive inverse.

    this holds for fields. including the rationals which is what this question is in.

    Therefore pedmas should read, PEMA

    "nothing about math is a toss-up, which is why math is so powerful: math is absolutely absolute for ALL instances, there is never a toss-up. In equations you do addition and multiplication before any division and subtraction because multiplication and addition are commutative."


    ahaha why the fuck do people post shit like this when they clearly dont know wtf they are talking about. how about whether zero is a natural number? this is an infamous example of where convention plays a huge role and there is disagreement to this day.

    ahaha these people are ridiculous on that forum..
    i havent see that division symbol once since like grade 11 and im one week from completing my third year of my math degree. there's a reason it's not used... these arguments are PRECISELY the reason... i vote that the division symbol gets removed from mathematics it serves no purpose

    I'd like to remind you all that I told you the problem was ambiguous and whoever wrote is a big gigantic faggot.

    Thank you.

    48÷2(9+3)
    482(9+3) - Wolfram|Alpha
    Its 288.

    To get 2 you have to technically add in brackets. As the original equation stands its the 2nd one. To get 2 it would be 48÷(2(9+3)).
    48(2(9+3)) - Wolfram|Alpha

    Now since that is obviously not the original equation.

    [​IMG]

    Again.

    Top one WRONG. 48÷(2(9+3))=2

    Bottom one RIGHT. 48÷2(9+3)=288
