Integers and multiplication are words I haven’t heard since school.



I believe him yo
I've forgotten many things since grade school, but some of those math facts stuck with me


random, but here's another math fact that ppl either forget or don't know:


you can always tell if a number is evenly divisible by 3 by adding up the all of the individual digits. if the total is divisible by 3, then the original number is divisible by 3.




for example: 477

4 + 7 + 7 = 18. 18 is divisible by 3. even 1 + 8 = 9, that's divisible by 3.

in fact, 477 ➗ 3 = 159. this trick will always work.






say you tried it on a random stupid long number like 71,608,902,832,341.

7 + 1 + 6 + 0 + 8 + 9 + 0 + 2 + 8 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 = 54.

54 is divisible by 3, but even if you didn't see at first, 5 + 4 = 9.

71,608,902,832,341 ➗ 3 = 23,869,634,277,447

1.) mathematically impossible.

I could tell just by looking at the selection of numbers

even and odd numbers in addition are similar to positive and negative numbers in multiplication:

- two even numbers added together will always be even.
- two odd numbers added together will always be even.
- an even and an odd number added together will always be odd.

therefore, 3 odd numbers added together will always be odd, no matter what the combination is






2.) answer is 1.

3.) answer is 12.









edit: upon further review, #3's answer is 2. I thought that equation all ran together


2nd edit: okay you're right. #2's answer is 9.

damn
bruh, u had 3 right..... the silly sh*t that confuses people is the use of the division sign, which isn't really used in math problems where PEMDAS is a factor.....

The problem should be written as

6
______ =
2(1+2)

or

6
__ * (1+2) =
2

they used a division sign to screw up the clarity

1.
Still working on this one

2.
6/2(1+2) = 6/2(3) = 3(3)= 9

3.
1+1x0+1 = 1+0+1 = 2


These f*cked me up too at 1st.
For number 2, ain't you supposed to distribute the 2(1 + 2) to be 2*1 + 2*2 = 6?

6/6 = 1?

I ain't did algebra in ages

1. ........

2. 1.... 6 ÷ 2(1 + 2) 6 ÷ (2+ 4) 6 ÷ 6 = 1

3. 2...

None of these are even real math equations They are incorrectly formatted numbers disguised as equations.

according to the PEMDAS rule, multiplication & division are the same step but go from left to right. that parenthesis throws you off but it's treated as multiplication after you add the 1 and 2 together.

6 ➗ 2(3) = 6 ➗ 2 X 3 = 3 X 3 = 9

you're supposed to divide first, only because it reads left to right.

the rule goes:
1.) parentheses
2.) exponents
3.) multiplication & division are the same step, priority left to right.
4.) addition & subtraction are the same step, priority left to right.

by itself, what you did works.

the issue comes when you have 6 divided by the rest.

adding within the parenthesis comes first, then it becomes simple multiplication.

then you divide first because it's on the left side.

first one impossible, 3 odd numbers cannot equal an even number. How in the fu*k does the last one equal 2, it would be 1 no?

The one with the celebrity faces changing. Is the point of it to make it too distracting to focus... like, your brain wants you to look at the faces?
Na if you stare at the center it makes them look like "caricatures", like their faces are warped.

how does 3 equal 2? anything times 0 is zero, so youre left with 1

disregarding the distraction part..

1 + 1 X 0 + 1 = 1 + 0 + 1 = 2

multiply the middle first, then add the rest.

absolutely wrong. Do the math as it is written, and the only way to do that equation gets you to 9. in the first one you wrote you must simplify the bottom first, which is technically wrong, but gets you the same answer in this instance as you are multiplying before dividing.
in the second one you wrote you would have to keep the fraction and end up with 18 over 6, getting reduced to 3 over 1 which is not the same as 9, so it ends up with a different answer, in all 3 scenarios the order of operations is different meaning they are different equations even though 1 and 2 both equal 9.

no because there is more to the equation, therefore you must use order of operations, therefore you gotta add 2 and 1 as your first step, second step is division, and multiplication third.

6/2(2+1)
=6/2(3)
=3(3)
=9

No I'm not... Its the same damn thing and there is nothing to simplify.

2 (2 + 1) .... 4+ 2 = 6
2 (2 + 1) .... 2(3) = 6

breh just google pemdas order of operations, you'd see why you got it wrong.

nga said it was written with "clarity"
