Default Darn my math skills!

I was just on Webkinz Newz to win a pharaoh hat thing from the Thunderbird contest and I thought I had finally won one.

But no I didn't...because I answered the math question wrong...like I do on EVERY contest! (And YES, I learned PEMDAS a few years ago but I keep getting numbers mixed up.)

Anyone else have this problem? Anyone else always getting questions wrong?

Then go for it again. And for those who do not understand the order of operations, you do the parts inside the paraenthesis first.

example:

(6*3)/(4+10-5) you have 6 time 3 equals 18, and 4 plus 10 minus 5 equals 9 so:

18/9 and 18 divided by 9 is:

2

I hope that clarifies and helps. good luck on finding another tbird to click on - I know they are out there.

The way to remember the order of operations is to rememeber this senence:

Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally

Parenthese Exponents Multiplication Division Addition Subtraction

I know what you mean! some of the most simple problems i'll end up messing up or something! once my friend typed in 1/2 (for the answer) and she got it wrong cause it was supposed to be .5 (or the other way around). Anyhow, i can do math, don't get me wrong, but sometimes i'm not familier with all the little symbols and their meanings. Good luck!

Remember to follow PEMDAS

FIrst any parenthesis, then any exponents, then any multiplication or division form left to right, then last any addition or subtraction from left to right.

Yeah, guys, I know how to do math. I'm just not good at it. XD
I got my times tables mixed up. I knew it was 18 / 9 but yeah.

And I found more, luckily.
