Re: Stephen Fry

Did you know, the longest one syllable word in English is "screeched"?

 

Not a lot of people know that.

Re: Stephen Fry

6(-1*0)+(2/2) = 7
(6-1)*0+(2/2)=1

But the answer is 42

6 -1 x 0 + 2/2 = ?

 

Multiply and divide first so

 

(6)-1*0=0 and 2/2=1, 6+1=7

 

I think.

 

I hate maths........

Re: Stephen Fry

Yes it's 7.

 

When you add the operators and brackets it makes sense. A bit like English without punctuation.

 

Although the order of operators should be brackets on/off divide multiply add and subtract.

 

6 - (1x0) + (2/2) = 7

6 - 0 + 1 = 7

I'm sure multiply and divide come first, the add and subtract.

 

My brain hurts!
