When Pea Bear was three I went to take a piss, Pea Bear watching tv in the living room (our house is 750 square feet) and when I come out of the bathroom I find a chair, box, and children's chair all stacked against the fridge with Pea Bear sitting atop the fridge proudly eating the cookies from the cookie jar. :-)

Long hair problems.

I've been accidentally dipping my hair in my coffee entirely too often lately.

My body shape is more akin to Limey, except switch beard for hair.

It's fifty six degrees and misting out.

Makes sure there aren't five coffee shops at the nearest intersection.

Bummer! I was hoping we'd got sucked into some temporal vortex and transported to Seattle so I'd get to go to PaizoCon after all.

I strongly disagree with the video guy.

The concept of a number 2a is a singular mathematical expression - it's representative of a complete number, but one with a portion unknown to us.

2(a) is the same as 2a: this is implicit in every single math textbook I've ever had; y ÷ 2a is going to equal y/(2a), else pretty much all your basic math books will be giving you incorrect problems.

Further, when you have "6 ÷ 2(3)" going only by PEMDAS, you still have not resolved the parenthesis first - you have to finish the parenthetical expression (which, in this case, becomes "(2*3)=6") before you can process the rest of the problem; this is actually exceptionally important, as I know I got serious points knocked off my college math when I tried to resolve it in other manners, and this comes from two colleges and several professors/courses.

I get where he's coming from, and I see why people resolve it this way, but it's not a valid concept: it's taking the calculator's word over proper ordering, i.e. "That thing you should never, ever do, whether in math or science." (because it will be wrong).

He's citing "history" back in 197-whatever, but I'm mentioning I've seen these kinds of problems in the 90s, 00s, and current school (complete with multiple choice answers), and the other answer simply never fits the pattern; it's been universally considered a "wrong" answer.

EDIT: As someone else says in the comments - it's more a sloppy use of notation than it is an interesting problem. The ultimate issue is not PEDMAS, but rather why people are resolving it with that notation via calculator. XD

He even explains the problem with trusting a calculator's instincts in this video!

(I got this one "right" by-the-by; it's a more clear use of PEDMAS.)

So my kid sister texts me the other day to warn me that her birthday present to my daughter is arriving unwrapped from the manufacturer and to hide it and wrap it when it comes.

So yesterday it arrives and I open it and it's a freaking mermaid tail. An actual mermaid tail you can wear in the swimming pool or at the beach. With a matching swimsuit top. Oh, and a complete set for her doll as well, and a mermaid coloring book.

When we were kids, I think one year I got a Barbie toilet for my birthday from my sister. She gave me a Barbie toilet. She gives my daughter swimmable mermaid cosplay.

Feeling grumpy, envious, and all sour-grapes-ish, because I would look absolutely bloody ridiculous in a mermaid tail and I know it.

But holy crap, I can't wait to see the look on my daughter's face.

I'm afraid that you are incorrect, TL. The people who wrote your math textbooks were sloppy and lazy.

2a is NOT an "atomic" expression, it is 2*a, with the multiplication being implicit.
Therefore, y ÷ 2a = y ÷ 2 * a.
Since multiplication and division are equal in order of operations, you read from left to right, so you do the division first, then the multiplication.

Thus, this is more correctly written as (y ÷ 2)*a.

The problem is that people have indeed become lazy in the age of typing. y/2a has become generally accepted to mean y/(2a) because typing those parentheses is a PITA, as is typesetting the actual ratio. So I can accept that y/2a = y/(2a), though formally, technically, this is incorrect. Modern laziness has led to treating 2a as atomic, but in formal mathematics it is not.

So if you change the slash to a division sign to get y ÷ 2a I am going to insist on formal order of operations.

This is again incorrect. Yes, you have to resolve the parentheses first. But only what is INSIDE the parentheses.

So 6 ÷ 2(3) = 6 ÷ 2 * 3 (I have now resolved the parens) = 3 * 3 (working left to right) = 9.

Here's another example: 2^3(2+3). Every mathematician I know will do the parentheses first to get 2^3(5). They will then perform the exponent to get 8(5). Then multiply to get 40.
Getting an answer of 2^15 = 32,768 is not something I'd see any mathematician doing.

EDIT: OK. I was poking around for a good counterexample to "2a" being atomic and found a nice one: 2a^3. If we treat 2a as atomic, then 2a^3 = (2a)^3 = 8*a^3, which everyone should agree is incorrect.
I was always very uppity with my classes: "Parentheses are free! Use them!"

And I hate sunshine. I still have the burn scars (freckles -- lol) from my youth. It hurts the eyes, it burns the skin.

If it can't be winter and after sundown, I only request mostly cloudy and dry, no more than 75 degrees, please.
