this

You don't do math calculation from left-to-right or opposite. Math is universal. to be 1 it should have been 20 / (2*(5+5)) = 1

the way it's written is 20 * (1/2) * (5 + 5) , since / 2 = *(1/2)

Says the guy who thinks you don't remove parenthesis after you have calculated them

This is how you calculate

20÷2 (5+5)=

20/2(10)=

20/(20)=

1 or technically its still 20/(20) or "20 / * 20"

You remove "()" after you have calculated

for example

2(5+5)/20 =

2*10/20=

20/20=

1

That time the multiplication is first

Thank you... I was starting to wonder if all /b/tards

>>

>>604401264

Are you sewdish?

>>

>>604399437

it depents on how you interpret the excercise.

the ones who got 100 interpreted the "20 / 2" term as "twenty halfs", the ones who got 1 (the right answer) interpreted the term as "20 / (2*(5+5))".

the reason this would be correct is because the 2 is directly connected to the "(5+5)" term, causing it to gain a higher priority in order of calculating.

>>

>>604401264

also he did right

>>

>>604401017

>>604401017

this guyt is right. I have phd in math i i can confirm it

>>

>>604399437

if you get 1, you're an idiot

its essentially (20 / 2) x 10 = 100

or since the 10 isn't stuck in brackets with the 2 you can write it as

20 x 10 /2

>>

>>604401634

No. Don't be a faggot. There is no interpretation of a problem outside of how it is written.

20 / 2 (5+5)

20 / 2 (10) = 20 / 2 x 10

10 x 10

100

This fucking thread again. Lol.

The ÷ sign is fucking everyone up. Who fucking uses ÷ still? Unless you're in elementary school.

It's 20/[2(5+5)] = 1

Or if you're the other kind of fag then

It's (20/2)(5+5) = 100

>>604405371

Why are you treating the entire right side after the division sign as if they're grouped? They're not. It's 20/2(5+5), not 20/(2(5+5). Once you finish (5+5) = 10, you're left with 20/2*10, not 20/(2*10).

You're not simplifying 2*10 because they're not both on the bottom of the fraction since that would be grouping them when they weren't grouped in the first place.

Once you have 20/2*10, it's left to right since multiplication and division have the same precedence.

The equation is malformed. Division and Multiplication have the same priority. If you fix it by writing

Like i said, it is malformed. It doesn't mean anything without it being corrected.All i did was choose what had the priority, multiplication or division, because normally they both have the same priority.

First you add the fives together, then you multiple ten, the sum of 5 + 5, by 2, no sign in between the the 2 and the parentheses is implied multiplication, and you get 20. 20 divided by 20 will forever and always be 1. There is now way half of you are that fucking dense.

Dear retards

When you pemdas you do multiplication/division left to right. They are considered one step same for addition/subtraction.

I agree about the education. However it really depends on the priority order they taught you, and neither is right. OP is just a troll who intentionally created this equation wrong with two operations with the same priority.

20/2(5+5)

Okay, let us take this one step at a time

FIRST PARENTHESIS!

20/2(10) or equally correct 20/2*10

NEXT MULTIPLICATION/DIVISION FROM LEFT TO RIGHT

THEREFORE

20/2 = 10

LEAVING

10(10)=

100

basic order of operations, you do not multiply before dividing, you do both simultaneously from left to right. It is a basic rule of mathematics. Putting 10 in parenthesis does not give it first order, parenthesis is just another way of saying multiply.

>>

>>604410133

> YOU GO LEFT TO RIGHT

Actually that's just a rule in schools to makes things easy. When people do real math they tend to use parenthesis,brackets,etc. so they don't leave any priority holes.

Look into it. Parenthesis gives priority only to what is inside them, not what is outside. You would not multiply 10 by 2 before dividing 20 by 2. Please never go into any mathematics fields.

The thing is, the "left to right" rule isn't valid. It is simply something teachers make up to make things easier. The correct way to do math is to use parenthesis and brackets, something OP intentionally didn't do.

It all depends on how you perform order of operations. perhaps there are two answers/extraneous solution(s)?

can i save that picture?

I can't believe I'm posting on one of these stupid fucking troll posts... nevertheless, there is a basic misunderstanding about "order of operations" that all of you cuntbags who get "100" make... the very first operation - parenthesis - does not mean you only start with what is inside a parenthetical; it means you deal entirely with the parenthetical first before moving on to the next operation. Thus, 2(x+y) is not actually 2*(x+y) FOR PURPOSES OF THE ORDER OF OPERATIONS; it is 2(x+y) = (2x + 2y). The fact that you are given known quantities for x and y - here, x=5 and y=5 - makes no difference in how you deal FIRST with the entire parenthetical, which INCLUDES multiplying the 2, which applies EQUALLY to everything within. So 20/2(5+5), unless specifically expressed as 20/2*(5+5), is actually expressing:

___20___

2(5+5).

(Drops mike)

>>

>>604400659

retard

>>

>>604411708

Division and Multiplication have the same priority when there are no parenthesis. OP intentionally put them together so people would argue. When doing math that shouldn't happen, that's why parenthesis, brackets, etc. exist. So people can write equations in a way conflicts are avoided.

ITT: people who did not complete calculus

>>

>>604412549

You realize scientific calculators automatically factor in the order of operations. Hope you brought autaway faggot.

>>

I'd usally do the division and pultiplication in the order they come:

20/2=10

10*(5+5)=10*10=100

BUT!:

What really irritates me is the missing multiplication sign between 2 and (5+5), because if i remeber it right, if you caculate with 2y instead of 2*y, for example, the mulitpication is done first, so it would be:

2*(5+5)=2*(10)=20

20/20=1

>>

20/2(5+5)

Parenthesis go first. 20/2(10)

With only multiplication and division, read left to right. 20/2 is 10 so it becomes 10*10. The answer is 100. OP distributes the 2, but doesn't remove it, which is why he has the wrong answer. OP also does not read left to write for multiplication and division.

>>

I showed this problem to my 6 year old daughter.

She came up with 1 as the answer.

>>604414204

No. But the greatest mathematician of the 20th century wasn't formally trained. His degrees were honorary because he consistently schooled all the "degree-holders". My educational level does not affect the truth of the matter that you cannot move past the parenthetical until you have dealt with the parenthetical, and you haven't dealt with the parenthetical until you have dispersed the 2 in front of the parenthesis throughout the interior of the parenthesis. To not do that is to show your lack of intelligence, whether you have a doctorate in advanced mathematics or a food service certificate that qualifies you to make fries.

>>

>>604415599

OP doesn't even say it's 1, he says it's 0.5. He knows neither the correct order of operations, nor basic arithmetic...

>2(5+5) = 2(10+10)

>>

PEMDAS is for gays muricans, only in that shitty country their teachers thaught those assholes that fucking 'rule' cuz they are so dumb they can't do maths.

So, the answer is 1 BECAUSE:

20÷2 (5+5)

Since algebra we've seen the 2 is multiplyig those 2 terms in the parentheses, whatever the shit is inside them.

So we have:

20÷(10+10)

It's equivalent to 20÷20

20÷20 is also expressed as 20(1/20) and the answer is 1!

20÷2 (5+5) = 20(1/2(5+5)) = 20/2(5+5).

(E)xponents

(M)ultiplication and

(D)ivision

(A)ddition and

(S)ubtraction

Parentheses outrank Exponents

Exponents outrank multiplication and division

Multiplication and Division are the same rank

Multiplication and Division outrank Addition and Subtraction

Addition and Subtraction are the same rank

We begin with simplifying the parentheses, thus the equation becomes:

20/2(10)=

Simplifying even further, the equation becomes:

20/2x10=

There are no more parentheses, there never were any exponents, and there are no more additions, and there never were any subtractions.

What we are left with is:

Multiplication and Division which are the same rank.

At this point, the equation can be completed by simply moving from left to right:

10x10=

100

You divide 20 by a positive fucking number, aka 2 (5+5). IF YOU DIVIDE A NUMBER WITH A FUCKING POSITIVE NUMBER IT CAN NOT GET FUCKING BIGGER YOU GOD DAMNED RETARDS. THE ANSWER IS 1, FOR FUCK'S SAKE
