Why? Mostly to solve internet math questions.(plus not to fill up the general chat)

since

24/4 x (8/4) is 6x2, then 6x2 is 12, so it’s 12

didn’t even get to vote smh

6/2(1+2) is equal to 6/2x3, which is 6/6, which is just 1

ok now i’ve angered half the internet i’ll leave

No, its 3. You have to follow order of operations, which means you have to start with the bit that’s in the parentheses (8/4).

24÷4(8÷4)

(8÷4)=2

4×2=8

24÷8=3

tbh my brain has been fried enough already, so I have no idea if that’s correct

wait, one second

I’m pretty sure i’m correct?

Theoretically your right, but for that sort of equation you have to follow order of operations:

- Parentheses (8÷4)
- Exponents N/A
- Multiplication 4x2
- Division 24÷8

but it was already used?

No

24÷4(8÷4)

24÷4×2

6×2

12

Multiplication and division are equivalents

shouldn’t it be 24/4 then times 2 since you opened the bracket?

Calculate what’s inside the parentheses first.

8÷4 = 2

24÷(4×2)

= 24÷8

=3

Make a debate thread about this or something

Aren’t multiplication and division equivalents tho

so u should do the division first

Let’s use calculator
