    :eek::eek: Wow, Vinska. :rockout:

    On a side note, looks like I won't be attending school, until the fall. It's a bummer but, can't get around it. So, my At-School-Crunching-Project, is on hold, until then. :(

    Plan B is to keep working and having the State take money from my check. Hopefully, by the time Fall rolls around, it will mostly be paid off and I can either pay the rest or qualify for a smaller loan to pay it off. :rolleyes:

    (4x3)/2(2x3)-1=12/2*6-1
    (4x3)/2(2x3)-1=12/11
    12/11=1.0909090909090909090909090909091

    ^ I am doing something wrong there?

    Pemdas seems unnecessarily hard, a phrase that plays with the mathematical terms would be easier.
    In the Dutch speaking area in the EU, it's Meneer Van Dale wacht op antwoord ("Mr. Van Dale awaits an answer").
    Meneer = machtsverheffen = exponentalisation
    Van = vermenigvuldigen = multiplication
    Dale = delen = divide
    wacht = wortel trekken = root
    op = optellen = sum
    antwoord = aftrekken = substraction


    So in English it could be like "Poor mister Divy rode some subways".

    Uhm... multiplication and division take precedence over addition and subtraction.
    So, it's actually:
    (4 x 3) / 2(2 x 3) - 1 = 12 / (2 x 2 x 3) - 1 = 12 / 12 - 1 = 1 - 1 = 0

    That's what I was going for...
    However Excel says to go this way:

    ((4x3)/(2(2x3)))-1

    That is why I like the reverse polish notation.
    Due to its stack-like nature, the order of evaluation is well defined by the position where numbers / operators are placed && thus no need for parenthesis at all.
    ...and avoids embarrassing things like:

    Hint: correct answer:
    10 + 10 x 0 = 10 + 0 = 10
    i.e. Most people answered right. People who wrote those "it's 0!" comments are morons.

    I scanned through the Wikipedia page about that notation but it hurts my already-not-so-great mathematical capabilities. I rather keep relying on good old meneer Van Dale wacht op antwoord. Parents expect multiple dishes, roots added sustantially.

    (you saw what I did there in the last phrase?)
