\[6\div 2(2+1)=?\]

- Goten77

i know order of operations is par thesis 1st... so it becomes
\[6\div 2(3)\] but then isnt it multiplication 1st then division? or arent they on the same level? or does that parenthesis around the 3 make any change?.... ive heard stories now

We can follow,
PEMDAS or BODMAS.

- hartnn

not again!

- hba

BODMAS means Bracket of division multiplication addition and subtraction.

- Goten77

so basically
\[6\div 2(3) = 6\div 2 \times 3\]

- Goten77

and the parenthesis around 3 has no effect?

- hba

Not in this case.

- Goten77

well since what your saying is true * i believe* that means on a old question on here some1 told me a different story and i didnt feel like arguing .... but yes he obviously told them wrong but oh well.. just making sure

- hartnn

when you have only multiplications and division, the order of evaluation is from left to right.
and a(b) is ecactly same as a*b.

- Goten77

thats what i thought @hartnn but this guy said it was multiplication then division..... and i knew it had to b wrong

- hartnn

multiplication and division have exactly equal priorities.
