7,895MemberI was waiting for someone to finish the song for some reason 😂

I feel the hearts beating

71,380MemberYeah, I don't think anyone here would know the song. 😂

7,895MemberI was ready to stand there like "I didn't get the reference"

I feel the hearts beating

7,895MemberBro, same

I feel the hearts beating

11,871MemberOh... I think you may mentioned this in the past, or something similar maybe.

The story sounds like something Eyelash would listen to, even if the music itself doesn't. He's been listening songs from "The Devil's Carnival"

71,380MemberYour three most recent emojis are your main personality traits.👌💁♀️😁

I guess I'm like an 'okay' and 'whatever' person. And if everything goes south, just grin about it. XD

DHSKFJHSDKFSJGFHKSJHWLKJ. I'M SO HAPPY FOR YOU.

I read it as 'display tablet' at first and I almost screamed.

Yeah, I think Eyelash will like it. ^^

But the trilogy has a nice metaphor for real life too cuz in the last song, the guy raised an army and defeated the devil. But he became crazy for it and decided to not leave the place; so in the end, he became the devil. 😨

13,136Member🐀😅😁

First 2 are accurate

71,380MemberI got 1 and I haven't done math in don't know how many years. How do you even get 16...? XD

6,689MemberYou do the bracket first and you get 1... right? I got 1 too

71,380MemberI read the comments and some people did it like (8/2) x (2+2).

6,689MemberYeah that’s the only way I can think of to get 16. No wonder why they say they haven’t done maths in 3 years

11,871Member1,350Member71,380MemberI took a long time to see 16 here. Cuz over here, if the answer is supposed to be 16, they would have written it as (8÷2)(2+2). With the brackets for both equations. Maybe it would be more obvious if they wrote is as letters like for algebra. So like,

8 ÷ a(x+y) = b

One has write it as 8 = b(ax +ay). Right? So b has to be 1 here for a, x, y to be 2.

7,895MemberDistribution is multiplication, and the order for division vs. Multiplication is whichever comes first (division in this case) so you solve the () while you divide 8 by 2 and you get

4×4=16

I feel the hearts beating

10,861Member😊😥😡

6,689MemberI agree with Dekay. Obviously you solve for the ones in the bracket and you get 4. Then what you need to do is to multiply it immediately by the 2 right in front of the bracket, which gives you 8. Then you move the way outwards and solve 8 over 8 which gives 1.

Essentially 8/(2(2+2)) and if it’s sixteen it would be 8/2 multiplied by (2+2)

7,895MemberYou solve brackets first, so you can remove them. Tha leaves you with

8÷2×4

You need to solve the division first because it comes first, so you get 4×4=16

I feel the hearts beating

6,689Memberlol that's why in maths they use "/" to indicate a division so there's no room for ambiguity. Either 8/(2(2+2)) = 1 or (8/2)*(2+2) = 16

It's the poor formulation with the "÷" that leads to different modes of interpretation. It's the creator of this question begging for trouble 🙃

7,895MemberIt's not ambiguous though. You need to do the division first either way
