I know it's 12, but let me ask something here...
PEMDAS (Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiply, Divide, Addition, Subtraction)
You go left to right, each time taking all of the possible opportunities to do the next operation.
3+3x3-3+3 No P or E
=3+9-3+3 So Multiply
=12-6 No divide, so next do all of the addition
=6 Lastly, Subtract
Except I know that's wrong for some reason. But that's how I was taught it. Basic arithmetic, how does it work?

Derp. *Parentheses
#582 - TheUsername (04/07/2013) [-]
guys. GUYS. GUIZZ. i got this.
You have to work with PEMDAS.
3 + 3 * 3 - 3 + 3
No parentheses.
No exponents.
So it's either multiplication or division.
No division, but there is multiplication.
3 * 3 = 3
3 + 3 - 3 + 3
Now, it's addition or subtraction.
There's both, so you do whichever goes first, left to right.
3 + 3 = 3; 3 - 3 = 3
3 - 3 + 3
3 + 3
= 3
Half Life 3 confirmed.
#581 - anonymous (04/07/2013) [-]
Its 6.

3+3*3-3+3
3+9-3+3
3+9-6
12-6
=6

ADDITION BEFORE SUBTRACTION
ALL OF YOU ARE ******** NOOBS!!!!!!!!!!
#580 - thesirofponies (04/07/2013) [-]
Guys,it's 12. Do PEMDAS.

3x3=9

Do out the problem with the information.

3+9-3+3=12

I'm absolutely retarded with math and I understood this.

We can stop the ********* .
#566 - rawesome (04/07/2013) [-]
How are people getting this wrong?

This is 100% basic math that any ******* kid should be able to do...

If you got anything else than 12, you need to start paying attention in school

#523 - Pwneddareaper (04/07/2013) [-]
Following Pemdas wouldn't it wind up being 6? If the equations is 3+3 * 3 -3 +3 You would multiply first making it 3 + 9 - 3 + 3. then you have to add so 3 + 9 is 12 and 3 + 3 is 6 and that makes the equation 12 - 6 which equals 6. So wouldn't it wind up being 6?Just a classy cat helping out.

12
#548 to #523 - anonymous (04/07/2013) [-]
Following PEMDAS: 3 + 3 x 3 - 3 + 3 = 12.

1. There are no parenthesis or exponents so we can skip that part.
2. But ah! There is a multiplicatuion. So, it'd be 3 + 9 - 3 + 3.
3. But remember. You do ADDITION before any subtraction. So, 12 - 3 + 3.
4. Negative 3 plus positive 3 equals zero. 12 + 0 = 12.
5. 12=12.
Not very helpful if you get it wrong, hm?

User avatar #530 to #523 - ilovehitler (04/07/2013) [-]
You go from left to right in each category.
In the addition/subtraction category, you don't do all the addition THEN all the subtraction, but rather you do whichever comes first.

Hm, a good website that will explain it to those who don't fully understand PEMDAS. I'm definitely favoriting that for whenever someone really doesn't understand it.

Yeah it is PEMDAS because your mind recognizes acronyms better when they can be pronounced as if it was a word...
You are right, it is Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction
However, Multiplication and Division can be transposed do be Division and Multiplication, due to their reverse nature. Likewise with Addition and Subtraction.
They are treated in which order they appear in the problem

Example:
9/9x9-3+3=?
1x9-3+3=
9-3+3=
6+3=
9

User avatar #527 to #511 - alhemicar (04/07/2013) [-]
no u ******

subtraction is the same as addition, just with a negative number, addition doesn't come before subtraction
User avatar #524 to #511 - Mecuniv (04/07/2013) [-]
Except you need to do it from the left to right. Pemdas is actually grouped like this:

PE(MD)(AS)

The common misconception is that you do multiplication THEN division and then addition THEN subtraction. You do them both, whichever comes first, from left to right.

3 + [b]3 x 3[/b] - 3 + 3

[b]3 + 9[/b] - 3 + 3

[b]12 - 3[/b] + 3

9 + 6

The answer is indeed 12.

3 + 3 x 3 - 3 + 3
3 + 9 - 3 + 3

It goes from left to right in each category.
#514 to #511 - fireemblemrox (04/07/2013) [-]
Addition doesn't come before subtraction bro. Whichever comes first takes priority. If you don't get 12, you're a dumbass.

My calculator is doubtful....
User avatar #512 to #511 - uppercasename (04/07/2013) [-]
wrong its 12

3 + 9 - 3 +3 you go left to right

3 + 9 = 12 -3 = 9 + 3 = 12
#508 - dreamthrow (04/07/2013) [-]
(3 x 3) + 3 - 6 = 6
(3 x 3) + 3 - 6 = 6
User avatar #521 to #508 - ilovehitler (04/07/2013) [-]
You go from left to right in each category.
In the addition/subtraction category, you don't do all the addition THEN all the subtraction, but rather you do whichever comes first.
#545 to #521 - anonymous (04/07/2013) [-]
He's right. no matter what order a problem is in, you always do multiplication first then addition then subtraction
User avatar #578 to #545 - beardgasm (04/07/2013) [-]
You do multiplication and division at the same time from left to right, then you do addition and subtraction at the same time from left to right.
User avatar #551 to #545 - ilovehitler (04/07/2013) [-]
Yes, you always do multiplication/division first.
BUT, what I was pointing out was that he made the final 3 + 3 equal six before doing multiplication.
That's why I said you go from left to right in each category.
User avatar #486 - beardgasm (04/07/2013) [-]
Wtf is pemdas? Some new thing they teach in math?

User avatar #569 to #564 - TheLastNinja (04/07/2013) [-]
Oh, disregard... That's surprising. Thanks for letting me know. But, reading your comment further down, yeah, It does kinda confuse the little kids about the whole (mult./division) in the same category and so forth
User avatar #529 to #486 - ilovehitler (04/07/2013) [-]
You may have learned it in a different way, but pemdas (also known as bedmas) is the order of operations for math problems.
Parenthesis
Exponents
Multiplication/Division
Addition/Subtraction
User avatar #506 to #486 - improbablyyourdad (04/07/2013) [-]
How old are you?
User avatar #555 to #506 - beardgasm (04/07/2013) [-]
26. We never used an acronym for the order of operations, we just memorized it. Apparently dumbing it down into an acronym only made people dumber if they think you add before you subtract.
User avatar #565 to #555 - ilovehitler (04/07/2013) [-]
I have to agree with you here. While it's memorable, it isn't really accurate as to what the order of operations are.
User avatar #571 to #565 - beardgasm (04/07/2013) [-]
Yeah, but it's been almost 10 years since I took highschool math and I still remember the order of operations without an acronym, which is odd considering I usually forget everything I've learned the next semester.

User avatar #532 to #485 - ilovehitler (04/07/2013) [-]
I'm guessing you just did it from left to right?
User avatar #468 - atrumaliger (04/07/2013) [-]
12 - 6

PEMDAS

3 x 3 = 9

3 + 9 = 12

3 + 3 = 6

Ergo, 12 - 6 = 6.

THREE CHEERS FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH!

Cus you know 12 + (-3) + 3 is the same as 12 - 3 + 3...
User avatar #495 to #483 - atrumaliger (04/07/2013) [-]
Multiplication, so 3 x 3, addition, (3 + the now 9, thanks to the 3 x 3, as well as the 3 + 3 to the right), then subtraction (The now 12 and the now 6).

3 + 3 x 3 - 3 + 3

3 + 9 - 3 + 3

12 - 3 + 3

12 - 6

= 6
User avatar #504 to #495 - djdaggerztrike (04/07/2013) [-]
3 + 3 x 3 - 3 + 3

3 + 9 - 3 + 3

12 - 3 + 3

9 + 3

= 12

It doesn't matter what comes first when it comes to addition and subtract the both count as one, and you have to add. and sub. in whatever order they apper

Why are you doing the addition first? There is no rule about doing that first. You're supposed to go in order with that **** .
User avatar #507 to #500 - atrumaliger (04/07/2013) [-]
.. PEMDAS.

Parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction.

I'm going -multiplication- first, then addition, then subtraction.

Parenthesis
User avatar #489 to #484 - dammriver (04/07/2013) [-]
P is parenthesis ---> ) and (

Personally, I do think that brackets are more professional looking, because they are squared off...

"(" is a bracket... round, not squared

User avatar #497 to #494 - trollofhalo (04/07/2013) [-]
But it also could be considered a parenthesis

Welp, they are also called parenthesis.

And apparently, { [ ( ) ] } are all brackets.

Yes, parenthesis are a type of bracket. In math, parenthesis are used first, followed by square brackets outside.
