Correct, but 2 plus x = 290

hehe, must go to sleep....

where's the plus sign?? and in any case, how does 2+45 equal 290?

wot

someone didn't pay attention in school eh? i got 45

There's a ****ing 2 and there's a ****ing x right beside it, so you replace x with 90, it's not really ****ing hard is it, the sum written as it is, is ****ing retarded.

Let's make it really simple: if 2x=90

do you even algebra

You just proved *n**0 = 0.

If it were 2(90), that meant 2x90, not 2+90...

Anyway you FAILED

damn i wish i could divide by zero like the cool kids

If that simple math problem causes issues for some...

I enjoy sitting back and watching the idiots fail. Beats having to waste time explaining things.

I never post, but this...this...

What the even **** kinda drugs do you people take? It specifies under the sum to use the result of 360/4 under the application of x.

To get 45 what you did was use an algebra calculator instead of your brain.

Why the hell would you divide 90 by 2? There's nothing there to suggest you should do that... Other than some stupid method learnt in a school by a teacher who only knows Mathematics method from the 1850's.

If you aren't trolling, I am now concerned for your son if he ever ask for help in mathematical calculations.

Solve this:

5x = 3(10/2)

Solve this:

5x = 3(10/2)

3

It's like bodmas and all these other bullshit methods that create multiplication or division rules where they don't exist in the given equation.

I have no idea what the 'right' answer is in terms of what people expect it to be because apparently you would divide x by 5....

BTW Dustin I noticed your ninja edit

Well guys, the thing to pull from this thread is that education is overrated and we should all just do shit however you feel like.

I'm gonna go build a house using only Javascript and salad.

Well that's what BS this all is Dustin, you hit the nail on the head. Numbers don't change and they shouldn't but the way some people get taught is to effectively make up variables in an equation that don't even exist on the paper they are reading from.

The problem is that you always need rules to solve problems to ensure consistency. Especially considering Math is so closely tied to Science, ensuring that the scientific method stays intact and results are consistent and repeatable is a key to all of our understandings of everything.

Just because 2+3*5 and 3*5+2 look different, doesn't mean that the result should be different. Additionally, these rules (brackets specifically) allow different results to be nested within a formula, while acknowledging that those results must be solved before the rest of the formula to maintain accuracy and correctness.

Maths is the only truly universal language, saying it is bullshit is well.....pretty blueflame.

Science is just something the dumb atheists made up to make them sound smarter.

I guess that's the same as Americans thinking that guns are "for protection".

Better take the bus then...
