Remember people, when using PEMDAS, multiplication and division are done from left to right, even if M comes before D. Unless one of them is in a parentheses of course

Wait, isn't it when a bracket (parentheses) is written directly next to a number it acts as a multiplication which comes before a division meaning 8/2(2x2) would be 8/2x4 then 8/8 which is 1... not 16 like everyone else keeps saying

Multiplication and division ( division is just multiplying by a fraction of a number) are really the same thing so the order doesn't matter. Same with adding and subtracting. (Subtracting is just adding a negative number)

16 because when there's is a solution with PEMDAS Where multiplication and division got to go left to right which is why we divide first after you do the numbers in parentheses since it's the one first to the left Demonstration: 8/2(2x2) -> 8/2(4) this is where people think to use the distributive property and that's how they got 1 however it's technical a multiplication now so we go left meaning it'll be 4(4), 4*4, or 4x4 and that's how we get 16 Side note: I believe the distribute property can't mess up the order of the PEMDAS but I'm not entirely sure and it can't be distributed to a single number in the parentheses which I'm not sure of to also this can be a 1 however it'll need to be in a fraction form like 8 is the numerator and 2(2x2) is the denominator

The english equivalent of this question would be like: A mother hit her daughter because she came home drunk. Who was drunk?

It is 16

Yup. People who think differently should ask for refund for math lessons

It's known as order of operations. BODMAS.

In this very specific case, it IS written as a fraction.

Thank you! People just seem to forget that or they just didnt learn it correctly

You gotta use pemdas

Damn, i didn't know there was a word for that, in my country we just call it "the order of solving equations"

16, but if it were a fraction instead of division it would be 1

Bingo! That's the answer I was looking for!

the answer is obviously 173

8/2 is 4 Times 2 by 2 The equation is 4(4) times 4 by 4 and it’s 16

It is 16

69?

No, division and multiplication have the same priority

16 is the answer 8/2(2x2) you first multiply: 2x2=4 you then divide: 8/2=4 You’re left with: 4(4) which is basically 4x4 4x4=16

As far as I understand, its

Left to right when there is the same precedence so it’ll be divided first

1

Or just distribute 8/2 into 2*2

16

Yes, that was the joke. You got it right. But why did you post it again?

dont you have to multiply out the brackets? 8/2(2x2) 8/ (4x4) 8/16=0,5

No.

like to every other question in life the awnser is 2.

does it anyways

If 16 is the correct answer the brackeds would serve no purpose.

Happy Cake Day!

4?

1

It’s fucking 16

16

16 go brrrr

the answer is slove like this 8/2=4 4x2=8 8x8=64 64 is the answer

16

It’s 4

It is 1

4 ofcourse

16

16

What else could it be besides 16

Parentheses then read it like a book

[удалено]

This is so unbelievably wrong it blows my mind

8/2 is 4

8/2(2×2) 8/2(4) 4(4) 16

Everyone here is a math wizard

It’s like, year 4 maths.

64

21

16 and proud of it
