Although you should keep the M/D and A/S in the same order instead of totally switching them around to confuse more dumbasses like the ones in here. Last edited by Krazie; 04042013 at 11:31 PM..

7  4 + (3 x 0) + 1 = 7  (4 + 0) + 1 = 7(4+1) =< Mistake was putting the +1 within the parenthesis. 75 = 2 EDIT: 7  4 + 3 x 0 + 1 = 7  4 + 1 = 3 + 1 = 4 7  4 + 3 x 0 + 1 = 7  4 + 1 = 7  3 = 4

I got 4, then thinking "why would so many people get this easy a.ss problem wrong" I started to question myself and got 1. Then I see n*ggas saying it's 4 and feel stupid for being tricked into being wrong.

SMH @ these n*ggas trying to argue the wrong fu*king answer.
It's 4. If you got something other than 4, instead of arguing, go fu*king look it up, so you don't expose your dumb a.ss to the rest of Boxden. 284 posts on a simple order of operations problem. This is 5th grade sh*t. I can only imagine what would happen if these n*ggas had to do some algebra. /end rant.

6 % 2 (1+2) = 6 % 2 x (1+2). This answer becomes 3 x 3 = 9 Most math that includes division would be written with a bar for division and you don't know whether the (1+2) would be written NEXT TO 6/2 or whether 6 is over top of both 2(1+2). If you interpret 6 as the numerator, then 2(1+2) as the denominator, you would get: 6/2(1+2) = 6/2(3) = 6/6 = 1. That is wrong though. The (1+2) is a single term due to the parenthesis, not 2(1+2).. You can imagine this as 6/2 x n, where n=3 6/2 x 3 = 9. So, the true answer to this question is 9, even though it is somewhat ambiguous. Last edited by Magnificent Phoenix; 04052013 at 12:16 AM..

Then you get 7  4 + 0 + 1 = ? 7  4 = 3 3 + 0 = 3 3 + 1 = 4 ? = 4 You DON'T do all of the adding before any subtraction. They are considered equal operations. so addition doesn't happen before subtraction. The answer is 4

My first answer was 1. But my gf is really smart and showed me the PEMDAS and helped me after my dumbass got it wrong I got 4.
Talk about me all you want I'm dumb in math

PEMDAS gives me 4 so I will go with 4 FTW

Multiplication and division first, then add or subtract.. unless there is pararethesis, then thats first. Its 4

Holy sh*t I'm dying at this thread. It's page 10 and remedial students still haven't learned a thing.
I commend you for at least trying this problem because most dudes straight ignored it. But you're wrong. 2(x + y) = 2x + 2y The operation looks like: 6 % 2(1+2) = ? 6 % [2(1) + 2(2)] = 6 % (2+4) = 6 / 6 = 1
