Nope. You are dividing 20/2 and then multiply it by 10. in other words, the answer is 100

>>605364507

So 20 divided by 2, which is 10, plus 10 is 100? Retards like you are what gives America a bad name.

>>

>>605363684

It's 1, this isn't even ambiguous.

You treat numbers on each side of the operator separately, it's not (20/2) x (5+5), it's 20/2(5+5) which can also be expressed as 20/20 which is 1.

>>605363684

It's either 1 or 100, depending on which convention you use.

The division symbol originally split an equation such that everything before it was the numerator, and everything after was the denominator; the root of the problem is that the division symbol is an attempt to represent a fraction on a single line.

If you write the problem with explicit multiplication of 2 and (5+5), as in 2*(5+5) then the problem is more clear, but people tend to use 2(5+5) style to imply that the two ought to be multiplied.

There isn't a right answer because the problem is a very classic example of an ambiguous equation.

>>

>>605363684

its only 1 if its formulated like this 20/2(2(5+5)). without the additional bracket its 100.

>>

>>605365046

>says the autist

>>

>>605364985

There is an invisible multiplication sign between 2 and the parenthesis, so it's basically 20/2*10, which is 100

>>

>>605364865

Not how it works. If it was an equation equaling 0, you'd be right.

It's 100. Pemdas works like this, first you do all parenthesis, then exponents, then BOTH multiplication and division left to right, then BOTH add and sub left to right. The answer is 100 because even though they say multiplication first, it's grouped with divison.

doctor in math here.

no ambiguosity, the answer is 100.

no sign implies a multiplication, so the OP calculus is 20 / 2 x (5 + 5)

first the parenthesis: 20 / 2 x 10

and then multiplications and divisions from left to right.

10 * 10

Entry level algebra tells us how to solve equations like this (where X = 5 + 5)

20 / 2(X) =

20 / 2(10) =

20 / 20 = 1

There is no difference to 2(5 + 5) and 2x where x = 5 + 5. Even if you were a dropkick cunt who denies this, you have to expand the brackets and solve them before dividing shit, meaning you have to turn 2(5 + 5) into 20 first anyway

>>605364635

>20/2+10

>>

>>605366187

No, 1 is not the right answer

>>

Obviously the first thing to do is in the parentheses. Can we all agree with that?

So after doing that the equation looks like:

20 / 2 (10) = X

You then go left to right:

10 (10) = X

100 = X

Problem solved.

Do you know what a fucking exponent is? It's a superscripted number telling you how many times to multiply a number by itself. This equation has zero exponents, it's actual form is:
