 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!

1. Wilfred Okello says:

Use bodmas principle
60÷5 (7-5)=60÷5 (2)=(60÷5)(2)=(12)(2)=24

2. Zeinab says:

60÷10=6

3. Issu says:

12

4. Jooste Coetzee says:

6

5. AbhISHEk Muley says:

24

6. Ramya says:

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

7. Tamar says:

24

1. Syed kabir says:

24

8. Noor Mohammad says:

24
According BODMAS law

9. Zakaria says:

60÷5(7-5)=?
60÷5(2)=?
60÷10=?
6
Ans:
6

1. Shaikh shoeb says:

Explain…..

60÷5(7-5)
=60÷5×2
=12×2
=24
So answe is 24

1. Nehat says:

No its not.. Its 6

10. ThickeJames says:

6

11. Vinay kumar says:

We can write the above problem as
60/5(7-5)
=60/5*2
=60/10
=6

12. Isaac Mbugua says:

6

13. Harian celeng says:

24

14. Cuthy says:

Bomdas 60/5(7-5)
= 60/5(2)
= 60/10
= 6

15. Viviana Molano says:

24

1. Prajapati parth says:

24

16. Boniface bundi says:

1. Prince says:

60/5(7-5)=6

17. Elianus manda' says:

=12×2=24

18. Rikk Ashe says:

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

19. Rikk Ashe says:

Sixes I mean, lol

20. omtm says:

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

21. Dharmeswar Tamuli says:

6 according to BODMAS

22. Eugene says:

6

23. Lakhvir says:

60/5(7-5)=6

24. Ady says:

60 60
60÷5 (7-2 ) =________ = ________ = 6
5 ( 7-5 ) 10

25. Ady says:

…………………….60…………..60
60÷5 (7-2 ) =________ = ________ = 6
………………….5 ( 7-5 )………10

26. Norman V says:

The right and the only answer is 6

27. SENA says:

BODMAS
B= Bracket first
O= of
D= division
M=Multiplication
S= Subtraction

According to this format the Answer is 6

28. Dilshan malik says:

24 (according to the bodmas rule

29. Rahul Kumar says:

60÷5(7-5)
= 60÷35-25
= 1.714-25
= -23.286 Ans.
