What is 8 ÷ 2(2 + 2)=?
This simple math question was one of the most discussed topics on social media this week.
According to the Turkish education system, the ranking in mathematical operations is as follows:
- The expiry operations
- Transactions within the guarantee
- Cashing or splitting operations
- Addition or subtraction operations
The other thing to be aware of here is that transactions with the same priority are performed from left to right. So this way:
8 ÷ 2 (2 + 2) =
8 ÷ 2 (4) =
4 (4) = 16
