I'm glad you can remember an acronym from middle school. How on earth did you ever get to become so damn insightful?

It's called basic arithmetic.

Anybody that got anything other than 4 is doing it completely wrong. Multiplication takes precedence over addition and subtraction. Addition and Subtraction have the same precedence so you go from left to right in that case.

You do 3*0 first. The problem because 7-4+0+1. Which becomes 3+0+1 which is 4. What's so confusing about this?

I'm not entirely convinced that mental retardation is contingent upon how well someone did in 9th grade math.

Let's be honest, the fact that n*ggas gotta just think about the PEMDAS acronym when you the age of 16+ means you are retarded

These kinds of equations and people getting them wrong have been all over the internet for a couple years now..

The answer is 4.. however, the question is phrased incorrectly. The correct phrasing would include the use of proper "brackets" or parentheses.

Assuming there are parentheses where there should be.. it would go (in order):

7 - 4 + (3 x 0) + 1 =
7 - 4 + (0) + 1 =
3 + 0 + 1 =
3 + 1 = 4

Since there aren't parentheses though, it would also be appropriate to solve from left to right.

this post should have ended this thread

A common technique for remembering the order of operations is the abbreviation "PEMDAS", which is turned into the phrase "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally". It stands for "Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction". This tells you the ranks of the operations: Parentheses outrank exponents, which outrank multiplication and division (but multiplication and division are at the same rank), and these two outrank addition and subtraction (which are together on the bottom rank). When you have a bunch of operations of the same rank, you just operate from left to right. For instance, 15 ÷ 3 × 4 is not 15 ÷ 12, but is rather 5 × 4, because, going from left to right, you get to the division first.

If you're not sure of this, test it in your calculator, which has been programmed with the Order of Operations hierarchy. For instance, typesetting this into a graphing calculator, you will get:

calculator screen-shot: 15 / 3 * 4 = 20

Using the above hierarchy, we see that, in the "4 + 2×3" question at the beginning of this article, Choice 2 was the correct answer, because we have to do the multiplication before the addition.




Hope that clears it up for you guys.
