lol and I am such a bozo at math
everybody who thinks its 9 didnt get a good education
the will to physically debate this is another pointer to that
idiot

the calculator had more than once logic problems ^^

I wonder what Siri says
she isnt linked with Wolfram alpha, is she?
I totally gave up on stupid talking boxes
if she can't solve it she should at least say I can't do that Dave
someone please test this for me

Holy crap, PEMDAS has multiplication before division. BODMAS has it the other way around. Consider my world rocked

Nah, the problem with these mnemonics is that both operations actually have the same precedence and when there’s a sequence you apply them left to right. The only possible confusion in this case would be due to

However, in some of the academic literature, multiplication denoted by juxtaposition (also known as implied multiplication) is interpreted as having higher precedence than division, so that 1 ÷ 2x equals 1 ÷ (2x), not (1 ÷ 2)x.

I was taught to do the x before the /, but when I had to help my kid out with homework on a similar problem, the answer we got was wrong.
I looked it up, and learned that now x and / are considered = level calculations, and those are calculated in order from left to right.

I was teached point before line (punkt vor Strichrechnung )
and stuff in (...) first
and multiplication before division (its a subset of point before line when you write x as dot)
(germany)
that was 25 years ago ...
and now its supposed to be X and / just in the order they appear?
nah, that must be wrong - its not complicated enough

looks logic to me
math is a little like syntax (I understand little about math, but that is the way it makes sense to me)
ish in the order ish appears doesnt make sense

wtf
wolfram alpha is usually right
but this is wrong

I wonder why the fuck Wolfram alpha doesnt follow physics?
as you can ask all kinds of complicated shit like moon orbits and such things ...

"For example, the manuscript submission instructions for the Physical Review journals state that multiplication is of higher precedence than division with a slash,[7] and this is also the convention observed in prominent physics textbooks such as the Course of Theoretical Physics by Landau and Lifshitz and the Feynman Lectures on Physics.[a]"

I stay by it
its one
the other stuff is simple junk

I think it's consistent with other programming languages. But, I wouldn't trust any system to get something like this right and I'd always group by parentheses to explicitly state what I wanted.

Stuff like this is why all my code is a bracket fest, especially in conditions and logic. I simply don't want to spend hours of debugging because of a stupid precedence problem 😁

don't want to ruin the test

Apple reckons it’s 9.

lol and I am such a bozo at math

everybody who thinks its 9 didnt get a good education

idiot

You see a maths problem, I see a vindication of my decision to stay off Facebook.

Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally.

She says one.

^^

I wanna know how does Mozaic interpret it @brambos 😂

the calculator had more than once logic problems ^^

WolframAlpha says 9 ☕️

Wow. Those who voted one, can you explain it?

Aahhh thank you! That was gonna ruin my day.

2(1+2)

(2+4)

(6)

6

6/6

1

Oh boy!

Mandela effect!

It's not well defined without context.

6/2(1+2) is

6/(2x(1+2)) is

6/(2x3) is

6/6 is

1

Frick, I got 45

this !

what school was that???

Alpha is going to be using the rules of the Wolfram programming language. https://reference.wolfram.com/language/ref/Divide.html

I think it's consistent with other programming languages. But, I wouldn't trust any system to get something like this right and I'd always group by parentheses to explicitly state what I wanted.

You're not alone applying that strategy

😮 wow

What do you mean?

Your first choice is 9? 🤓

Interesting. Wouldn’t have thought a programmer would ever think like this

I was living in the illusion that

6/2(1+2) is

6/(2x(1+2))

Is common sense that everyone educated can agree on ...

Gee I should learn how to write code

If it’s just logic, fine

It was the math that scared me
