Are you good at math? (TEST)


#22

Im in elem school in one of the hardest schools in the country USA… i have to learn prealgebra this was easy…


#23

In my school district you learn multiplication in 5th grade and prealgrbra in 6th…

PERFECT SENSE.


#24

Good for you, here’s a medal :medal_sports::roll_eyes:


#25

I learned pre algebra in 4th grade. I don’t think it’s a big deal.


#26

Just like all my math tests…I guessed to victory.


#27

I doubt that, even the super smart kids in my school didn’t take Algebra until 7th grade.


#28

Normal hectopascals take algebra in 8th grade here

#AdvancedMath

Algebra is a zetta annoying sometimes


#29

Pre-Algebra is typically taken in 8th grade unless you take advanced classes.


#30

Guess I’m advanced for my class then…


#31

Our school gives pre-algebra in 7th, and in 6th for advanced students

I am learning Geometry next year


#32

number 5 is only in America. in NZ it is either BODMAS (brackets, operations, division, multiplication, addition, subtraction) or BEDMAS (’’, exponents,’’,’’,’’,’’).


#33

Division first? Well that’s an issue…


#34

I thought multiplication and division were interchangeable…? Ah, well. All I use is the Pythagorean theorem nowadays.


#35

Here in the USA it’s Multiplication and Division left to right (so it can also be vice versa)…

Division first can cause some calculation problems…


#36

Order of operations:
Parentheses L to R
Exponents L to R
Divide and Multiply L to R
Subtract and Add L to R

ME AM CONFUSED


#37

When people in my school say BEDMAS, It’s was taught and Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction. That’s how I would say it, although the Division & Multiplication are interchangeable, as well as addition & subtraction. That’s probably what @AtomSmasher was saying, like what you had meant as well.


#38

the MAS of a BED is 3838728321329 kg

you do multiplication and division left to right, whichever comes first
SAme with + and -
\thats how i was taught
example
1x2÷4
we would to x then ÷

2÷6x9
we would do ÷ then x


#39

No, for real. It’s not like it’s something you’ll never figure out.


#40

Harvard kids…


#41

Harvard is a law school, kids that are good at math could go there but I don’t see why they would. It would be better for them to go to an engineering school or something like that.
