PEMDAS, baby. Pretty simple stuff. But the new maffs, where you are allowed to just make up your own way of solving stuff, well, that make MAFFS hard.

Since Sappys late to the party I'll help and provide the Leftist perspective!

In math, there is no right or wrong answer. Just as long as you have fun! :bann:

.... OH! And Math is Racist!!!

I bet spittbubble (aka Board Mommy) STILL doesn't understand this.

She probably comes up with 10 as her answer.
Interesting that you didn't tell whether you did. Or what answer you came up with.

Why do you continue to feel the need to lash out rather than contribute?

:jameo:

I learned it so that the answer comes out as "16." Didn't realize that it could be solved differently. Interesting to see how "1" could be the answer.

Learned something (still like the method that yields "16," though).

Thanks!

  1. Parentheses (simplify inside 'em)
  2. Exponents
  3. Multiplication and Division (from left to right)
  4. Addition and Subtraction (from left to right)
8 / 2 (2+2)=
1, simplify what is in the parenthesis first.
8 / 2 (4) =
3a (divide)
4 (2) =
3b Multiply
