Everyone is arguing about this problem, The problem involves the order of operations, historical math notation, and binary expression trees. Glad to see the world is passionate about mathematics! Here is a 1917 article from “The American Mathematical Monthly” that explains the usage of the division symbol as an exception to the order of operations

**The problem**

**What is 60÷5(7-5) = ?**

**So let’s figure out the correct answer!**

Use bodmas principle

60÷5 (7-5)=60÷5 (2)=(60÷5)(2)=(12)(2)=24

60÷10=6

12

6

24

The answer is 24…. for the above question ..according to BODMAS rule

24

24

24

According BODMAS law

60÷5(7-5)=?

60÷5(2)=?

60÷10=?

6

Ans:

6

accurate answer is 24

Explain…..

60÷5(7-5)

=60÷5×2

=12×2

=24

So answe is 24

No its not.. Its 6

6

We can write the above problem as

60/5(7-5)

=60/5*2

=60/10

=6

6 is the right answer.

6

24

Bomdas 60/5(7-5)

= 60/5(2)

= 60/10

= 6

24

24

The best answer is 24

60/5(7-5)=6

The answer about 60:5(7-5)=60:5=12x(7-5=2)

=12×2=24

Back in the day you can go left to right but anything in parentheses means multiply so I’m just not understanding how all these sizes and tens are coming in to play? Way to confuse everyone lol

Sixes I mean, lol

PMDAS RULE

process the equation inside the PARENTHESIS first then Multiplication, Division, Addition and Subtraction

6 according to BODMAS

6

60/5(7-5)=6

60 60

60÷5 (7-2 ) =________ = ________ = 6

5 ( 7-5 ) 10

…………………….60…………..60

60÷5 (7-2 ) =________ = ________ = 6

………………….5 ( 7-5 )………10

The right and the only answer is 6

BODMAS

B= Bracket first

O= of

D= division

M=Multiplication

A= Addition

S= Subtraction

According to this format the Answer is 6

24 (according to the bodmas rule

60÷5(7-5)

= 60÷35-25

= 1.714-25

= -23.286 Ans.

24

60 ÷5(7-5)=

60÷5(2)=

60÷10=

6
