Sorry, nope. It's always PEMDAS. I checked on it. It is always PEMDAS.

Cheah. You do the multiplication first then the subtraction and addition, unless it's in a parenthesis. That's how I understand it, at least.

I typed it into my calculator and it came up with 18. So who am I to believe, you or Intel?

answer is 12

in the absence of parenthesis

you always do exponents first, multiplication/division second,
addition/subtraction last

3+3*3-3+3=?

PEMDAS, also known as order of operations, stands for Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, Addition and Subtraction. There are no parentheses or exponents in this equation, so you then look for multiplication and division (3x3, which equals 9). Then you add and subtract. 3+9-3+3 =12

More liberal "New Age" math, Everybody's always right. If Johnny says 2+2-2*2 = 0, then it does, forget that the rest of us know it to be 4.

Not new anything. These have always been the rules of order.

No, mine. You hadn't posted in Regs so I didn't look down for your entries. I posted but they didn't take.

Omg, the girls who live next door were outside screeching again. There dad just sits there and says "the kids are kind of loud." I have a headache and my boys were out there playing with them, so I felt that I was well within my rights to walk over and tell all of them that screeching is not acceptable and they need to stop.

I try not to judge other peoples' parenting, but my neighbors need to enforce limits with their daughters. This guy NEVER says no to them.
