 Pro Let the debate begin! 6"2(1+2) = 9 OR 1Report this Argument Con 6"2(1+2), does not mean anything, since, 6"2, has no meaning.Report this Argument Pro TheAwesomeRuler forfeited this round. Con k. I think I won.-----------------6/2(1+2) is an ambiguous equation, it could be understood as:(6/2)(1+2) in which case we have: (3)(3) = 9Or:6/(2(1+2))6/61It depends how you use the order of operation with regard an equation that involves both division with a "/" and implied multiplication.If you say that they're equal & we calculate from left to right, you'll get the 1st way.If you say multiplication comes before the division you'll get the 2nd answer.Another way you'll get the 2nd answer is if you consider (1+2) to be like.I, and I think most other mathematicians go with the 1st way.Report this Argument Pro TheAwesomeRuler forfeited this round. Con K. this is dumb.Report this Argument Pro TheAwesomeRuler forfeited this round. Pro TheAwesomeRuler forfeited this round.
