there is no relativity in math. it is constant and predictable..the answer is 9
there is no other correct answer or interpretation
it is exactly the same as 1+1=2
2 is ..and always will be... the only outcome...
the original equation is not written ambiguously it is the standard in mathematics
I think the point of the whole thing is to draw attention to the fact that a simple middle school math problem is difficult and confusing for many and it shouldn't be..so it's a fail on the state of math and education.... ...those dern kids...get off my lawn !
