Ill give you a hint how num ( num ) translates



I'll tell you how num num translates.

num num = 1 less cookie

The question is all about the Obelus () and what it is representing in the equation. Now my brain is telling me its separating the equation like so:

48 - the dividend, numerator, the top dot above the vinculum in the Obelus Symbol
Obelus () - vinculum, fraction line, the line yo
2(9+3) - the divisor, denominator, the bottom dot

Thus my brain sees it as i said before:

I think it's pretty stupid to call people who answered 2 dumb. It's easy to misread the equation when it's written like that.

If you'd present it like this: http://tinyurl.com/6542acb it would be clear to everyone.

what you mean and what you type are completely different. What you just typed could technically be simplified to y/x. now if you wrote it on paper and the y was clearly under the "/" then it would be 1/(xy). but if something is in type that is to be directly transmitted to a calculator, 1/xy would be the same as 1 x * y

amen

Implicit Multiplication. It's a rule. It's not open to interpretation. You're ****ing stupid.

You're wrong.

On implied multiplication (http://mathforum.org/library/drmath/view/54341.html)

Some texts make a rule, as in your second solution, that
multiplication without a symbol ("implied multiplication") should be
done before any other operations in an expression, including "explicit
multiplication" using a symbol. Following this rule, you would
multiply a by x, then multiply b and y, then divide one by the other.
Some (probably most) texts don't mention such a rule - but some of
those may use it without saying so, which is far worse.

I don't know of a general rule among mathematicians that implied
multiplication should be done before explicit multiplication. As far
as I'm concerned, all multiplications fit in the same place in the
order of operations. It's not an unreasonable rule, though, since it
does seem that implied multiplication ties the operands together more
tightly, at least visually; but the idea of Order of Operations (or
precedence, as it is called in the computer world) is supposed to be
to ensure that everyone will interpret an otherwise ambiguous
expression the same way - so if some texts change the rules, or if
people do what feels natural, the purpose has been lost.

Implied Multiplication Versus Explicit Multiplication on TI Graphing Calculators. - Knowledge Base by Texas Instruments - US and Canada (http://epsstore.ti.com/OA_HTML/csksxvm.jsp?nSetId=103110 )
Does implied multiplication and explicit multiplication have the same precedence on TI graphing calculators?

Implied multiplication has a higher priority than explicit multiplication to allow users to enter expressions, in the same manner as they would be written. For example, the TI-80, TI-81, TI-82, and TI-85 evaluate 1/2X as 1/(2*X), while other products may evaluate the same expression as 1/2*X from left to right. Without this feature, it would be necessary to group 2X in parentheses

This order of precedence was changed for the TI-83 family, TI-84 Plus family, TI-89 family, TI-92 Plus, Voyage***8482; 200 and the TI-Nspire***8482; Handheld in TI-84 Plus Mode. Implied and explicit multiplication is given the same priority.

This thread is great, let's see how I can extend it in some small way...

The venerable 'bc' gets around the problem of implicit multiplication by not allowing it, or faggy divide-by symbols, for that matter.

I'd like to point out that only one engineer I work with said 288, and he was from USA.

Every other CS/Eng said 2. 100% from Canada, Russia, Bulgaria, China and Brazil.

Either way it's an ambigious question. But it's funny that American's were taught that 10 / 2x = 10 / 2 * x

We see that as 10 / (2x).

why is it funny to not make assumptions and read the equation as written...? You're are changing the equation.

For example, the TI-80, TI-81, TI-82, and TI-85 evaluate 1/2X as 1/(2*X), while other products may evaluate the same expression as 1/2*X from left to right. Without this feature, it would be necessary to group 2X in parentheses, something that is typically not done when writing the expression on paper.

Eat it ******. Who the **** writes 1/(2*x)? You are a newb at math. Welcome to edumacation
