Yeah, I didn't think so.

Wow, what an impressive gene pool you must have to come up with the most original trolling style I have ever seen.

I would not have thought a math problem would have so engaged the Cellar. I'm quite pleased. We need more.

I agree with UT. Order of operation.

terms inside brackets
exponents and roots
multiplication and division
addition and subtraction

so 482(9+3) = ?should be written as

48/2(12) = (12x48)/2 = 576/2 = 288 (my keyboard doesn't seem to have a division sign)

It certainly awoke the Cellar brain trust. *snort*

For a minute there I was afraid we might implode!

Oh looky, a new one!

You guys keep going you'll have quite a little pussy, I mean posse.

You got a horse in this race, bullitt? Do you have an answer to either the math question or the semantics argument? 'Cause, I haven't seen ANYONE proven right or wrong. Just a bunch of wind a'blowin' if you ask me.

I'll ask you all again: NO MATTER WHAT YOU CALL THEM DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN A MATHEMATICAL EQUATION IF (THOSE THINGS] ARE CURVY OR SQUARED?

Other than an answer for that, just try to look bright and say 2 or 288.

kthx

Precisely! It's the mathematical equivalent of "eats, shoots and leaves."

To be more precise, and to appease the dullards in the audience, how is this

482(9+3) =

different mathematically than this

482[9+3] =

Even better, how does WHAT YOU CALL THEM change the mathematical equation?

This same type of discussion is happening all over the net.

My initial response was 2, and still is. I just need to solve 2(9+3) first. But I am more a right-brainer type gal, so there.
