Keyboard dirty.


#13

well first you distribute the 2 to the 9 and 3 Thus giving you 48/18+6 so the answer would be 8.666666667

After my vote based on first glance, I withdraw any claim I’ve ever made regarding my math skills.


#15

How did you type the division sign?


#16

The answer should be “write more parentheses so you don’t confuse people, schmuck!”

QFE


#18

… 2? what the ****…


#19

That’s what I was going to say but people shouldn’t assume the (9+3) is in the denominator, that’s just stupid.

Was reading on another forum that people really thought in PEMDAS multiplication comes before division. There were people who had the exact logic of the problem but still got 2 due to multiplying first. Definitely 288.
