May want to pay attention in the other classes too and not just math 🙂   English especially.

 

It's also a rough problem due to some that consider a 2(2+2) to be 2(4) to be 2 to the 4th power.  Growing up we used parentheses to denote powers when next to a number without a symbol to direct us.

What country teaches brackets to denote exponents? Very odd.

🤔 I thought you're supposed to do 2(4) first because it's the bracket

Guess I'm really bad at math

 

Which is also why writing in fraction is superior

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Following order of operations, you first simplify the parenthesis (2+2) becomes 4. Now you have 8÷2(4). Then because multiplication and division are on the same tier, you do them going from left to right. So first you divide 8 by 2 to get 4. Now you have 4(4) or 16. This is the same as [8*(2+2)]/2 not 8/[2(2+2)] which would equal 1.

looks like i'm wrong, maybe i'm a 1917 boomer guy

No, because you're supposed to resolve what's inside the bracket during the P(arentheses)  or B(rackets) phase.

 

Once that's done, 2(4) is just 2 * 4. You don't prioritize it, because it's not a "Bracket" problem anymore, it's just multiplication, so standard multiplication rules apply.

I wouldn't go that far. Fractions can be unnecessarily complex I find.

The way you're solving it, you're putting implied brackets into the problem where they don't exist.

 

The problem is stated as:

8/2(2+2)

 

And you're solving it as if it's:

8/(2(2+2))

It is 16 man. Haven't done math too much lately since I left school. I was confused a bit myself initially when looking at it.

If you want it to be 1 you need to write it like this: 8/(2*(2+2))

Exactly - I feel like when some people see a "divide by" sign, they (for... whatever reason), assume that you're dividing by the ENTIRE REST of the equation.

It’s elemantary school arithmetics, but most people don’t actually do much math or arithmetics in their lives after school and thus forget how stuff work.
