      The division. Not in your case, but in that image. How do you know which case is the image supposed to be:
      8
      --- * (2+2)
      2

      or

      8
      -----
      2*(2+2)

      Answer is different based on case.

    I think the major issue is the division symbol. Nowhere have I seen it in academia, you either multiply 8 by 1/2 or 2^(-1) which is the same. Once given the symbol, you can only assume 2(2+2) is one term and thus the outcome is 1.

      >OoO

      It is not objective whether implicit multiplication takes precedence over division or vice versa. Anyone interpreting 1/2pi as pi/2 is a brainlet, for example. Other situations are more ambiguous. The only objectively correct solution here is to mark the student's work as incorrect.

  13. 4 weeks ago

    It's 16 either way. The ambiguity is from whether parentheses adjacent operations take precedence or not. But in both cases it's (8 / 2) * (2 + 2) = 8 / (2/ (2 + 2)) = 16. Get this brainlet shit out of here.

    When did this board become flooded with midwits?

    Fact: Knowing how to solve this problem is useless information to 99% of people, hence why they don't retain it. Most people who can't solve it are probably skilled at something else. Were you taught French and Spanish in school? Can you remember basic verb conjugation? No you fucking can't. And they can't remember this either. Because it's useless.

      No, you're the most common midwit poster this bait was designed for who's too low IQ to realize this is notation trolling and who's too low IQ to identify the specific aspect of notation that's ambiguous depending on which order of operation scheme you use.
      Hint: Go look up what implied multiplication by juxtaposition is and how it isn't always treated like explicit multiplication. Or what solidus division is.

      Ambiguity isn't a "power" you stupid shit.
      Anyway, picking one ordering rule over another is the stupidest thing you can do here and exactly what the bullshit problem was designed to bait you into doing.
      A smart answer would be identifying the notation ambiguity that results in a consistent split of midwits arguing with each other about their preferred rule.

          Wrong, which is exactly the problem. Implied multiplication by juxtaposition and division by solidus operator are not consistently defined behaviors all publications and caluclation systems use the same ordering rulen for.
          That's why these threads continue to work at baiting contradictory replies from anons insisting their own preferred ruleset is the one true ruleset. And why you can pull out two different calculators or calculating programs and get the two different answers depending on which ruleset it was programmed to use.

    I'm going to post this here because there are no question threads on this board and I've failed to be able to look it up. I can't quite remember the details, so I might be wrong on some things.

    I think there's some sort of mathematical function f(x), or a series of functions, that returns whole numbers or at least rational numbers without many decimal places, but this is true only up to something like x=12 or x=14, at which point the function returns a number with a huge number of decimals. When the code to do the calculations was first written and they saw this result, they initally thought it was a mistake and tried to figure out how to fix the bug, but eventually realised that it was actually real. I think it might have been a series, and it contained trigonometric functions like sin. I think the series also might have been named after someone. I originally thought it might be Wilkinson's polynomial, but that's a different thing.

    Does anyone recognise this story?

    the division is noted with a symbol but the multiplication is not. if it was written as "8 / 2x where x=(2+2)" there would be no debate but for some reason actual numbers makes people dumb
