    Split from THINGS THAT STICK IN MY CRAW


    ----

    People that answer 6÷2(1+2)=? with 9. That shit has caused me some craw stickerage the past few days. ONE GODDAMNIT ONE.


    Basic fucking algebra. If I retained it after 20 damn years then I don't see how anyone else has an excuse.

    You sure? Brackets leave you with 6 / 2 x 3. Then you divide before multiply.
    Don't you?

    The stuff involving the parantheses gets done first, including the multiplication.


    If it were (6/2)(1+2) then it'd be done the way you're thinking and end up nine.

    Firefox 4, they flipped the "open in new tab" + "open in new window" lines, so when I right click I've been opening up new windows all morning, it seems like a completely unnecessary change
    There's not a problem that I can't fix, cause I can do it in the mix.

    I always keyboard shortcut that to be fair. However the Refresh button is annoying me greatly... Time to switch to Chrome I think.

    PEMDAS, nigga.

    Parenthesis, Exponents, multiply, divide, add, subtract.

    So P gives you 3 in the parenthesis, then you multiply 3x2 (6), then divide 6 by 6 (1).

    How do you keyboard shortcut that?

    "Ctrl+T" and "Ctrl+N"

    Unless I'm misunderstanding what the good Doctor has stuck in his craw. To be honest, simply because of this thread I've just googled that Ctrl+R is the refresh shortcut so my annoyance has ceased.

    Edit: Unless you were making a joke about keyboard shortcutting to Chrome? Ambiguous!

    PEMDAS? We learned BEDMAS- Brackets, Exponents etc.

    It wouldn't be 1 though, the MD and AS are interchangeable, you do which ever one comes first, so the answer should be 9.


    Also, Ctrl-T doesn't solve the problem. When I'm on a newspaper site I leave the front page in one tab and right click on articles I want to read and open them in a new tab, but because they've changed how the info pops up when I right click, I've been clicking on open in a new window and keep opening up a whole new browser.

    6÷2(1+2)

    =

    6 ÷ 2 x (1+2)

    Order of operation rules:
    PEMDAS. Left to right.



    It's really quite simple.
