The inactivity of this forum.
Thu Apr 02, 2015 11:06 pm by Burkman
It's depressing to see how inactive it has been recently. I mean, everybody is pretty much primarily posting in the never ending thread now and there's not enough people here to make this place really booming. We need to find some way to bring more people here before this place just fades into nothingness...

I know for a fact that a lot of boards out there are thriving because of how many people are there. We just need to get back into the game and pull people here. However, where we obtain these people might matter, because we don't to end up pulling in douches like those at Selkath.

I understand that people are busy these days, but it doesn't seem like they're rarely at their computer anymore. I know most of you are still dicking around with your computer. I don't know how we …

Happy New Year OT! We may be dying... BUT WE'RE STILL HERE! We had an... interesting year last year. Vice Admin Burkman is taking a long earned vacation and Uly is stepping into his position. Well...

Fist you distribute...

48/2(9+3) ------> 48/(18+6) ------> 48/24 = 2

or think of it this way

(2(9+3)) is all under 48

so

48/2(12) = 48/24 = 2



By rules of Math etiquette you need to consider everything under the / as one. Tho I know Math teachers probably don't care that much to put forth such strict discipline. Therefor if you're not in complex math 2 or 288 will work (mostly because at that level it doesn't matter for anything important),

Wow. I so suck at math. I assumed that 48/2 is 48 divided by two. Then the answer to that is 12, then you add the 9 + 3= 12 and multiply the 24 and the 12 equaling the 288..... isn't that how you do it?
that's what I remember from school.... but to be fair I was spending all my time passing notes to the cute boy next to me

The great division with this question is how people were taught. I always do the brackets first because that's how I was taught. So it would be the way Scott did it.

Several years of calculus based Math have taught me to do as the professor tells you to do. Yes... I laughed at the term math etiquette too when my professors brought it up. But surprisingly when you're working with complex equations you actually have to consider the order in which you execute functions... and it's maddeningly tedious on most problems. you

You could just realize that everything after the / is on the bottom.

So that makes the top number twice as large as the bottom

I feel sorry for that bottom number, probably not going to make it was something that big on top.

This no longer sounds like math to me.

A pure division symbol may have made this a little different.

But yes I also say 2. My way of doing is wasn't as smart as Scoots<3.

PEMDAS tells to do parenthesis first on this, making it 48/2 (12)

Then multiplication is next in order of operations, making it 48/24

Just divide and get 2.

But I do see how some people who learned order of operation by BODMAS or BEDMAS can get 288. I never learned it that way though. OMG!

Yes it can be tricky, but only because of the way it is written.

The same equation:

48
--------
2(9+3)

is relatively easy, assuming you graduated elementary school.

I've done some searching and apparently both the answers are correct.

You plus me... subtract the clothes... divide your legs... and then we'll multiply. Mathrite?

I am sure Mrs Scott enjoys that sort of math.

The End.

As long as the final equation always remains one plus one does not equal one plus two.

If I ever said that to her there would be no multiplication... only masses of giggling at my nerd pride.
