Ahhh!

I like a challenge!

I LOVE Maths even though I suck at it so much!

Hmm the brackets say that is a single unit but on the other hand the division sign shows the whole thing or the entire equation is divided by 6.

So it looks like this:

2(1 + 2)
________

6

So it is 1.

So I think the answer is 1 if we use BODMAS. It should be that I think so at least.

However BODMAS claims that Division comes before multiplication and then multiplication comes after Division in that order / sequence.

But some Mathematicians say that neither Division and Mulitplication comes before the other but I am not too sure why lol.

I think they are both equally important because both basically boil down to Add and Subtract.

World champion thread hi-jacker LOL you make me laugh dude!

If we use sequences and series I think the answer is 3

I think this is an "Dual" infinite sequence

That is there are two sequences in this number line.

First Sequence is 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1,

NOW the second sequence is:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc etc

But I could be totally wrong lol
