This math equation is dividing the internet, and no one can agree on an answer
Jul 31, 2019
8 ÷ 2(2+2). Simple, right? WRONG. As someone who hasn't calculated anything more difficult than a restaurant tip in years, may I say that I can't believe we've made math trend on Twitter. You're all really gonna make me pull out my dusty TI-48 graphing calculator, huh. I'm really gonna have to dig through my post-grad brain like SpongeBob's memory files, burnt to a crisp, and calculate this equation. OK, I guess we're doing this. Pop quiz folks -- can you solve this controversial post?> oomfies solve this pic.twitter.com/0RO5zTJjKk> > -- em ♥︎ (@pjmdolI) July 28, 2019Pencils down. What answer did you get? 1 or 16? The real answer may surprise you: no one can decide conclusively. Pretty anticlimactic, huh? Here I was thinking that some dashing math majors would sweep in and put an end to the madness, but even they can't stop this viral fight now. > Wait... https://t.co/0xaE4dJuTz pic.twitter.com/9DwOQSzqq5> > -- LUZZZ (@celestiallight_) July 30, 2019> Anything other than 1 is absolutely wrong hth> > -- Alex⚓ (@ClassyXhakalaca) July 28, 2019> Brackets come first mate> > -- Toni (@GorgeousGio) July 28, 2019> i do parenthesis, multiplication, then division so i believe it's 1> > -- em ♥︎ (@pjmdolI) July 28, 2019> 1\. The amount of people saying 16 need to retake math > > -- JKOurEuphoria (@JungKookQueen97) July 28, 2019> took 3 calc classes, differential equations and linear algebra, it's 16 bro> > -- jake chyllenhaal (@corynhendrix) July 30, 2019> LMAO pic.twitter.com/rhNVsCUQN6> > -- LiberalTXDiva (@MzJayFord) July 31, 2019> pic.twitter.com/HBKLaoB5Fl> > -- laur♏️ (@lauram_williams) July 30, 2019> i have 2 math degrees it's 1> > -- laur♏️ (@lauram_williams) July 30, 2019SEE ALSO: A maths exam asked students to count calories in a woman's meal. Here's why that's a problem.> IM SICK OF YALL pic.twitter.com/lCE1F1qg7b> > -- como siempre (@skylarrousse) July 30, 2019The answer actually lies in the way you go about solving it, and that depends on where in the world you learned math. If you use the PEMDAS method, the order of the equation is Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction. But if you were raised on the BODMAS method, then the order is Brackets, Orders, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction. So technically, both are the right answers! Boo, that's no fun. As a millennial with pre-new math education, my conclusive answer is 1. But who am I to talk, I'm just a writer -- let's hear what the experts have to say. > since part of the world teaches PEMDAS and part teaches BODMAS algebra can be quite confusing at times pic.twitter.com/UaXSPMwvYJ> > -- Mark Bott (@questionablmark) July 30, 2019> You need to see the how bracket is created.
