i honestly did this on the computer calculator just now and got 1......

7 + 4 and 7 +(-4) are the same

edit: if u do it on the standard calculator vs the scientific calculator, u get two different answers. on the standard, u get 1 on the scientific u get 4
nope...

but 7+4 and 7 + l-4l is the same

and you get different answers because the standard calculator doesnt do order of operations on its own

Right, and most everyone knows that one plus one equals two; or that 12 times 12 equals 144; or that 1.x times a price will give you the price plus x% added on. These are useful and can be used across borders, I agree. Algebra is very rarely used by anyone, and isn't necessary for using the universality of math. You will never see the equation in this thread in real life, at least not presented the way it was.

This is simply math nerds trying to feel superior for no reason. It's like if I made a topic about political economy (something actually much more relevant to daily life than algebra, but still not on many people's minds most of the time) and just sh*t on people for not knowing the inherent logic of capitalism or socialism or some such. It's bullsh*t, I don't accept this kind of elitist sh*t at all (and so we're clear, this is coming from a university graduate who just got into grad school on a full scholarship, so I'm not a dummy trying to say fu*k all the smart people. Just the elitist as*holes).
But what you fail to see is that this isn't even algebra. It's simple arithmetic's.... Math you learn in the 3rd grade. It's sad that the majority of America only read around a middle school level, but even worse? Most Americans only understand math at a 3rd grade level.

Its funny how even after pages of people going through this equation people still think its 1

Someone here has a brain.

how they hell they expect a regular calculator to use pemdas.

That's some sh*t I realized couldn't be done when I was 12 probably younger.

Right!

Pretty sure some of these people are the same people that claim to have gone to college and have great jobs in other threads

Funniest thread ever! I actually teach math and this is a 5th/6th grade problem. You learn the order of operations way before algebra. However I have algebra students that will still screw this up.

There isn't anything wrong with how the question is written either, if they put parenthesis in the problem more people would get it right, but that is a true testament of how many people don't know how to apply the order of operations.

The problem is people use things like Please Excuse My dear Aunt Sally to teach the order of operations, that why we have people who think you have to add before you subtract and multiply before you divide.

I teach the order of operations differently 1) grouping 2) exponents 3) division/multiplication left to right 4)subtraction/addition left to right

And you can use a calculator to solve this problem. Most scientific calculators know the order of operations and will solve the problem in the correct order. Especially calculators that allow you to enter the entire problem in one step (ie: graphng calculators or Texas Instruments TI 30x and above) Now if you have one of those cheap calculator without any memory that only allows you to enter one step at a time, you will probably get the wrong answer.

7 - 4 + (3 x 0) + 1 =
7 - (4 + 0) + 1 =
7-(4+1) =
7-5 = 2
dont forget u do all adding before any subtraction
i only put the parenthesis (not sure if i spelled that right) around what step im on not that they are actually there in the problem but u do in this u go p.e.m.d.a.s and aint no p.e. skip to m do the lil multi then go to addition from left to right in this problem it doesnt matter but others it might but then u do subtraction last .... the only correct answer is 2 I think lol

that is false addition and subtraction are equal operators(same hierarchy) , you do whichever comes first as you read the problem from left to right.
