My faith in humanity is restored as most people here are getting it right

People that get 1 think that you solve it left to right.
People that get 3.5 think that you solve it left to right AND 5x0 = 5.

I don't really call people thick or anything like that, but if people post calling others thick they should be damn sure they're right in the first place

"It's 1 anything that is times 0 = 0 so the real question is 2 divide by 2 so the answer has to be 1 any one that got anything different are idiots"
"It's 1. Anyone that says different needs to go back to school."

Yeah, I've been really amazed by how a majority of Facebook users answers these simple math questions wrong (and stay so freaking arrogant).

Luckily, I'm quite sure there's a huge difference between Neowin users and the average FB users.

i guess for the result being 5 can only be:

6-1x(0+2)/2
6-1x(2/2)
6-(1x1)
6-1 = 5

can't see other way for that silly result lol

I don't care if people get it wrong, they should just not be an arse about it when they clearly don't know

It's people who think that because multiplication takes priority in the equation, they can forget about the order for the rest of it

(6-1)x(2/2)

Both are horrid, there is no such thing as multiplication before division, divison before multiplication or even addition before subtraction.

18/3*2=12

(no it is not 3)
