    As I was first, 100% of the poll agree'd with me. Yay, egofood.

    I got the division one in Chat. ^_^ I remembered BODMAS with that one, yay. :D

    Brackets
    Order/Index (Depends upon BODMAS/BIDMAS, I think BIDMAS is more recent.)
    Division
    Multiplication
    Addition
    Subtraction. :D

    ohey, did this one on facebook.

    6÷2(1+2)
    6÷2(3)
    6÷2*3
    3*3
    9

    pretty sad that about 40% of the answers are 1.

    to be honest, these are all terribly defined problems, with the exception of the first. You shouldn't ever come across something like that outside of this type of thing or if your teacher is cruel. It should always be very clear what order to do things in without relying on the reader understanding to go left to right.

    very true. first was probably the most common, as it could actually be application of a formula or definition. rest are "thought required" and could be rewritten more clearly

    So Pat uses BJDMAS? I think we have a winner... That can't even be pronounced properly? I mean, PE, BI, BO, yeah... But BJ? D:

    One that's been slowly circulating Facebook:

    1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1+1-1+1+1+1+1+1+1x0

    Roughly 1/3 of people have the answer right there.

    ok normally these are stupid ambiguous problems (e.g. multiplication and division priority is ambiguous esp. with regard to implied and using the symbol) but this one only has one answer unless you're using an old calcualtor or something

    Extension is incredibly useful. http://www.wolframalpha.com/downloads.html

    Also, there's a guy making fun of Americans who can't add on that FB poll now. In Spanish, though.

    Why isn't 36 an option?
    That's obviously the right answer.

    New problem I guess. It's from Facebook again.

    5+5+5-5+5+5-5+5x0

    [spoiler]The correct answer is 15.

    4,945 people voted 40.
    17,004 people voted 20.
    147,587 people voted 15.
