Feed me to the wolves, and I will return leader of the pack. #FreeDA
Haha pry should have read the comments first
The amount of idiocy going on in that thread on facebook is amazing. Me and a few other guys have laid it out step by step for people and they still dont get it. It just blows me away.
Step one: (2 x 2) - 2 + (2 x 0) + 2
Step two: 4 - 2 + 2
Step three: That's 4
If it was written like that there wouldnt be a debate. The equation is set up to teach the order of operations, hence it being called an order of operations problem.
Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally
the biggest question for me is why we are calling this a "Facebook" equation?
Because it is a thread going on over on facebook.
4....you have to do the multiplication before the addition
Yeah. I guess my point is that there isn't a debate because that's the objectively right way to solve the equation...
4-2+0+2=4 You have to do division and multiply first before you doing add and subtract.
