This problem may seem very elementary... But it brought up all kinds of references to PEMDA and BODMAS

Here were some

Ok...

All the "A's" are wrong

All the "D"'s are wrong

Its either "B" or "C" depending on whether you add or subtract at the end of the equation:

3-3×0+3÷3=

3-0+1...

(can we all agree on that?)

Doing Muliplication THEN Division,

yields 3×0=0 and 3÷3=1 bring us to

3-0+1...

OR if you prefer, the BODMAS way, DIVIDE first

3÷3=1 and. THEN MULTIPLY 3×0=0,

Again yielding 3-0+1

So far, so good, either way it's 3-0+1

But then there SEEM to be two approaches:

If you say 3-0=3, and 3+1=4

You'll get 4...BUT

If you say 0+1=1, and 3-1=2

You'll get 2

BUT...Don't BOTH PEMDAS and BODMAS

say "A.S." at the end of the acronym?

So, doing the "ADDITION" FIRST...0+1=1,

and THEN the SUBTRACTION,

YOU GET 3-1=2

so i would say the "2's"

(or, the "B's") have it.

Just sayin....- lol
