    Dr Khang, can we see our total carrier marks from the 40% of this course?

  2. Jian Bin Gan says:

    Dr.Khang, may i know the exact answer of this question?
    6÷2(1+2)=?

    • Tsung Fei says:

      It is 9.

      I read that half of the world say it is 9, the other half say it is 1.

      This situation is caused by a confusion of the basic rules of algebraic operations ( x or ÷ FIRST then + or -). Some people recall that you should do whatever that is in a bracket first – but not if there is at least a ÷ or x operation in front of it.

      P/S: If you ask R, it will give you the correct result, because it follows the rule STRICTLY.

      • Jian Bin Gan says:

        Thank you Dr.Khang. Now I understand already. It is because the calculator give different answer if press 6/2(1+2) and 6÷2(1+2). Now I’m not confuse already. Thanks a lot.
