Yes. You'd have to try way too hard not to. This is assuming you cohabitate. ...

[quote]But you are still making the assumption that in the "48/2x" statement, the 2x takes precedence over the 48/2. [/quote] Incorrect, the order you move everything to one side of the equation doesn't change the answer. There is no way to get x=12 in the 288 equation. [quote]In order to sat...

[quote]Any rational reading of this 'problem' would assign precedence to the 2(9+3) notation rather than blindly following PEMDAS. [/quote] I don't agree with you here. You can't say the problem is ambiguous and then say only one way (your way) of reading it is rational. Like I said in my fi...

So I decided to look at this a different way that I don't think I've seen anyone bring up yet. See work below: [img]http://i1180.photobucket.com/albums/x411/lnchbox1/116CF361-1F18-4404-8811-72E1694D21B9.jpg width=350[/img] Rewriting the problem as an equation, and knowing that the variable sh...

You're missing a lot of order of operations. More precisely, you added a bunch of parentheses that weren't in the problem. You can't do that. ...

re: Bizarre Math Question and Answer breaks the internet - Sorry if already posted - LNCHBOX
The issue with the calculator is that "/" isn't ambigous like the division sign is. If there was a "/" instead of a division sign, there would be no question the answer is 288. ...

PEMDAS with the problem written exactly as the OP gives 288. Parentheses gives you 9+3=12. Problem is now 48/2*12. No exponents. MD is next step. (ETA: m doesn't take precedence over d, which is why you say it is 2. That is incorrect) Going from left to right as you're supposed to, 48/2=...
