6%2(1+2)

1+2= 3

6%2=.12

.12x3=.36

Correct?

1+2= 3

6%2=.12

IF you meant 6/2(1+2)

than it would be 9

1+2=3

6/2=3

3x3= 9

than it would be 9

1+2=3

6/2=3

3x3= 9

6/2(1+2)

was hoping people could infer it meant division... no division key on a keyboard... and I didn't want people to think 6/2 was an improper fraction

Rule 3: Lastly, perform all additions and subtractions, working from left to right.

No, you add what is in parentheses first and then leave it alone. Next you work from left to right so you have to divide 6 by 2 next. You are trying to start in the middle

Arsenal WV

04-30-2011, 08:54 PM

On step #2 of the problem the 2 is still in parentheses, therefore you would still need to do that. Because it's the first step of PEMDAS. You would take the 3 which is in parentheses and multiply it by 2 that's part of the 6/2

6/2(1+2)

was hoping people could infer it meant division... no division key on a keyboard... and I didn't want people to think 6/2 was an improper fraction

LOL..I dont wanna be rude...cause you take alot of flack on these forums...

but yes 6/2 means divide..

if indeed it was 6 over 2 as a fraction...It would be the same thing..divison...Thats acutually how you get decimals / % from fractions...

Example. 1 over 2= 1/2 or one half..

1/2= .50, than you would cross multiple with 100% to get 50%

Now your problems states this 6%2.

Which means you take 6 % of the number 2

Which is .12

Now lets do an example of some simplier numbers to kind of check this...( I often do this cause its easy to get confused with %)

50% of 10 = 5...

Now ask yourself ...How did I Tunaphish429 come up of this answer?

Well turn 50% back into a fraction..Using cross multiplication I see that 50% = 1/2 or one half or 1 over 2..

So your taking half of 10 it equals five...

I am 26 years old..I will tell you I am no genius..I always liked numbers..But this was math that i learned in elementary school.. I barley graduated high school.. barley...

I hope this has helped you out.
