    6 - 1 x 0 + 2 / 2 =

    What is the process necessary to solve

    Always do the operations x and / before doing + and - in the order they appear in. In this example, x comes before the /, so we multiply first and get:
    6 - 0 + 2 / 2
    Then it's time for the / to get:
    6 - 0 + 1 = 7.

      This was sent to me on FB and I tried to answer it on the fly.  I shared the problem and about 2 weeks later a friend asked, "Well is it one?"  Thank you for your Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally process!

    Using the BODMAS formula 6 -1*0+2 / 2
    6 -(1*0)+(2 / 2)
    6 - 0 + 1 = 7

      Please tell us what the BODMAS is?  Thank you!

      BODMAS means Brackets of Division. Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction. In your equation the division comes first then the multiplication then the addition and lastly the subtraction.

      Thank you smartprincess!  I'd only heard of Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally.

      BODMAS means Brackets, of, Division, Multiplication, Addition and Subtraction. That is if there are brackets, start solving them first, followed by x, then / and so on.

      Thank you Patkay!  I'm going to let me students know they may be able to get homework tutoring here.  Alright!

    MDAS process is applied. My answer is 7 same with your explanation.
    BODMAS means bracket of division multiplication, addition, and subtraction.

      Thank you jeannie.  I show these to my students.  It reinforces the thought process behind solving mathematical equation.

    BODMAS? I've never heard of that. I was taught BEDMAS, which was an acronym for the order in which mathematical actions are performed in an equation.

    The order is:
    Brackets
    Exponents
    Division
    Multiplication
    Addition
    Subtraction

    My answer is 1.  Is that incorrect?

    6-1 = 5
    5 x 0 = 0
    0 + 2 = 2
    2 / 2 = 1

      dianetrotterposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      yep!  Your first step of subtracting took you off the main course.  Remember multiplication and dividion first.  1 x 0 = 0.  2/2 = 1.

    7 I think

    I did the multiplication first 1x0 = 0
    6-0 + 2/2
    6-0+1= 7

    Multiplication and Division 
    1 x 0 = 0
    2/2 = 1
    Addition and Subtraction
    6-0 +1 =7

    Using the BODMAS Rule it is very easy...
    6-0+1=7
    answer is 7

    sweeteethposted 5 years ago

    Using BODMAS rule it will be
    6 - 1 * 0 + 2 / 2
    =6 - 1 *0 + 1
    = 6- 0+1
    = 7

    I'm still waiting for the day that I will actually use:
                             xy+(4 20)>
                             x-5y[2+9-7]
    in a real life situation.
