PEMDAS.

Multiplication first, then division. Addition and subtraction are equal, so you'd do the equation left to right.

6-0+1=7

Quoting thefiregoddess:

Break down your math for me then, I even copied and pasted it into a few online calculators to double check before posting, and I got the same answer, with the same breakdown.

Quoting Anonymous:

Nope!

Quoting thefiregoddess:

I don't know how any of you are getting 7.

Its six. 6.

1x0= 2/2 =1 so 6-0/1=6.

Yikes.

Explain to me your math then.

Incorrect.

Below was a scientific calculator to calculate the problem to "prove" that the answer IS 7.

Yes, I'm just that bored.

6-0+1=

6-(+1)=6-1

Correct answer, wrong way to get there. I think you wrote the problem wrong it wasn't 0/2 it was 0+2/2

Quoting AquarianPath:

Incorrect.

1x0= 0

0/2=0

6-1=5

5+2=7
