I go by Chris Welsh's credo: I don't do math in public.

it is, in fact, one. You can't anticipate where the brackets would be.

(6 - 1) X (0 + 2 / 2)=? 5(1)=6

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

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

Without parentheses, you must follow the order of operations. Parentheses can denote where you would deviate from this standard, but without them, Doug is absolutely correct. Open up the calculator on your computer and try it!

Wow you guys can't do math. Order of operations. you do -1 times 0 first which is 0. then all you do is 6+2 and that equals 8. Be prepared to get hardcore trolled by cards fans for this. Its embarrassing that an like 10 people got that wrong. come on now guys

FWIW when I first read the question I thought 8 as well. I read Doug's response and was like "NO, NO!" Then I saw it was indeed 7.

It happens.

Pemdas = 7!

10. Too small of a sample size.

That's an easy one.

7 x 13 = ?

7/13 * 13/13 = ?/13

7/13 * 1 = ?/13

7/13 = ?/13

? = 7

14. ## Re: Fight amongst yourselves!

It was my understanding that there would be no math.

15. ## Re: Fight amongst yourselves!

That's an easy one.

7 x 13 = ?

7/13 * 13/13 = ?/13

7/13 * 1 = ?/13

7/13 = ?/13

? = 7
