Oh, don't worry guys - it was a MAJOR facepalm moment when the light turned on

His example, fyi, if you were to ask me what 1/2(1+2) was, I could literally read it out as "one half times one plus two". so, 6/2, 1/2, makes no difference. Call it "six halves times one plus two" and the result is 9.

Guess that's why it's a math problem. I assume it's the 6/2 throwing folks off, I dunno. I think if you were to ask what 1/2(1+2), most people would probably get it right

And to answer n0ct3m, yes, it's settled, and the answer is 9.

And, sadly, the Atrix bootloader is still locked

Oh, and I'd like to apologize to my teachers, because there is NO WAY they taught me that 6/2(1+2) = 1
