It's 24, use BIDMAS.
Incase any retards actually think it's 4, BIDMAS shows at which order you do the parts of the equation.
Brackets
Indices
Division
Multiplication
Subtraction

Do brackets first, subtraction last.

This is stupid. The answer is 24, but knowing it doesn't show and more or less mathematical prowess. The systems put in place are based on conventions; a set of rules for mathemticians to follow in order to be able to communicate via equation consistently and correctly. Under a different set of guidelines, it could be whatever. Under the chosen and accepted set by the current world, the answer is 24.

>>557298309
as others have said, the exclamation point indicates a factorial operation. Essentially, the equation actually shows equality, since:

>4! = 4x3x2x1
which
>=24

so, since the first half of the equation solves to 24, OP's statement basically says 24=24.

And the answer is correct, since 32/2 is 16, 40-16 is 24 and 24 is 4! (= 4 * 3 * 2 *1).

I’m not even going to bother with greeting the likes of you, I’m just gonna get to the point.

Whenever I read about some of you faggots claiming to have a great job, making 100k a year or receiving this or that education,
I roll my eyes and laugh. It’s cute really, because let me tell you a little something about myself:

I'm a Junior Chief Executive Officer. I’ve got degrees from Harvard and Oxford and I'm only 23 years old. I make 470k+ a year,
and that's just a starting salary. While you suckers are still working your blue collar jobs or attending clown college in the
hopes of scoring a Mickey Mouse degree, I'm travelling the world 24/7, flying Elite class, driving the finest handmade automobiles
or sailing \$25 m yachts. Money, women, respect, the whole shebang. I’ve got it all.

Sometimes I look down from my airplane window and think about all those "little people", getting up at 6AM, driving their little Hyundai's
to their cubicles or building sites, and coming home at 6PM to eat their pork and beans before having pathetic and gross sex with their ugly
wives. But when a smoking hot stewardess comes over to bring me my \$18.000 bottle of whiskey, I forget all about them.

Tomorrow I've got a meeting with some other executives over in Dubai. And guess who gets to decide whether or not our firm will open up a
new office over there? That's right: me. I even get to decide what shape the building is going to be. And no, I'm not going for the world's
largest tower. I don't need to overcompensate: I've got an 11" dick already.

Anyway, I've got to go now, because that smoking hot stewardess I told you about? Yeah, she brought her friends. They want to climb the REAL Burj Khalifa. In my pants..

I've heard many variations but the rule remains the same

It doesn't matter what you call them or even what you actually use ****see these for example ( [ {*******

If you start mixing within an equation like
{2a[3b+2(3-7c)]+7c}
that's where you need to know the difference
Parenthesis ()

Once again stoned math teacher faggot to the rescue!

the ! in math actually is a symbol, this guy's not just excited. Lets see if that helps:

40 - 32 ÷ 2 = 4!

>take division first, tell me you're not that retarded to think otherwise either works or is easier.

40 - 16 = 4!
24 = 4!

>symbol literally means that n! = 1*2*...*n, so;

24 = 1*2*3*4

I'm not hopeful here

24 = 2 * 3 * 4
= 6 * 4
= 24

24 = 24

The obelus and forward slash are fundamentally different operators from the slanted or horizontal bar of a fraction because the latter is a grouping symbol.
40 - 32 only resolves to (40-32) when there are no other parts of an equation with higher priority affecting the two operands.

Mathematical laws don't change, they just get more numerous.
