When someone has explained that it is 7, please read WHY this is 7. As 7 actually is the one and only correct answer to this. This is not a debate. Not a discussion. It's math. According to the rules (and logic) the answer is 7. NOTHING ELSE!

Now if I multiply by 0 hmmm I'd still have 6 but somehow I can't use them any more cuz the math works that way. So I'm guessin some nice person gave me 2 to use,I'd divide them in two and put em in a single coop so I'm gonna say I got 1 coop of chickens. Trouble I have is these 6 other chickens here. I'm gonna have to build another coop.

The answer i...You're all getting WAY too upset. The answer is 5. Multiplication DOES come first, but it doesn't mean you take the two numbers AROUND the 'x' symbol and multiply them (as that would be arbitrary and make no sense), it means you SEPARATE the equation out from that point. That's why everyone's 'arguing,' because they don't know what the Order of Operations is dictating. When this is done correctly, the equation is reduced to:<br /><br />1. (6-1) x (0+2/2)<br /><br />Then, from there, we do division. It doesn't matter that the multiplication isn't DONE yet, because as you can tell, we haven't reduced the equation fully, according to how PEMDAS actually works: <br /><br />2. (6-1) x (0+1) <br /><br />Now, it's easy. (5 x 1) This is why the answer is five, and only five.
