# What is 9×9+9/9-9 ?

0

It says it’s 73. But how can that be when you go left to right first doing order of operations. Times and divide first, then add. So you get 9.

• What Is 9 X 9

• (9*9) + (9/9) – 9

= 81 + 1 – 9

= 73

If you ignore the Order of Operations and just read from left to right:

9 * 9 + 9 / 9 – 9

= 81 + 9 / 9 – 9

= 90 / 9 – 9

= 10 – 9

= 1

Where did you get 9?

• Multiplication first, that gives you 81 + 9/9 -9

Division is next, that gives you 81 + 1 -9

Then addition, to get 82 – 9

Subtraction gives you 73.

• using PEMDAS, it’s

81 + 1 – 9 =

82 – 9 =

73.

• 73 is correct as written.

9 × 9 + 9 / 9 – 9

Multiply first.

81 + 9 / 9 – 9

Divide next.

81 + 1 – 9

82 – 9.

Now subtract. 73 is the right answer.

————————————-

To get 9 you’d have to parenthesise 9 + 9:

9 × (9 + 9) / 9 – 9

Add first; you must clear all parentheses/brackets first according to PEMDAS.

9 × 18 / 9 – 9

Multiply next.

162 / 9 – 9

Divide next.

18 – 9

Now subtract. This answer is 9.

• (9×9)+9 (9-9)

81+9

• 73

• 81+1 -9

73

• I got 1. going from left to right if you have multipication first
