Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll give you a hint to solve such questions: Please (parenthesis) Excuse (exponents) My (multiplication) Dear (division) Aunt (addition) Sally (subtraction) now give it a try :) which will you compute first? ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0true, but if there is no implicit * symbol, do you expand the formula 2(1+2)? The way it is written, both the 1 and 2 should be multiplied by 2 correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In essence, wouldn't 2(3) get performed before the division, ONLY because there is no implicit multiplication symbol.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02(1+3) is like 2 x (1+3) ^_^ and if you ace division and muliplication, always start from the left

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if both exist, then start computing from what is found left :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02(1+2) is also like 2+4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it? I don't think so

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there's the problem. without the implicit multiplication symbol, I argue that it is 2+4 and therefore the answer is 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol you can have more than one symbol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here :\[6 \div 2(1+2) = 6\div 2 \times 3 = 3 \times 3 = 9\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like I've said, if you face both multiplcation and division at the same time, compute from left to right ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0shouldn't 6÷2×3 actually be 6 / 2 + 4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why so? Advise :) try to solve the question as simply as you can instead of complicating it ^_^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait, is this question in fraction form?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then just compute it from the way I showed u :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if I have the formula as y= 6 / x(z+x), then you would simplify to y = 6 / xz + xx. If x = 2 and z = 1, answer would be 1 would it not?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now that's another story, you don' follow the steps here :)
