The Mathematics of Countering Tyranny seems like a particularly well done example. The authors compute that under very generous assumptions there are about door-knockers available to perform confiscation raids.
Posted on April 29, by The Mathematician Mathematician: Now that the Physicist and I have answered questions like these ones at least 9 times via email, I figure we should get this horrible topic out of the way once and for all with a short post.
You could come up with a different convention, but why bother? Let other people waste their time coming up with arbitrary conventions so that you can merely waste time reading posts about them.
The rules to follow are: Things in parenthesis get computed before things not in parenthesis this is because of the little known fact that parentheses kick ass. Then, exponents get dealt with including roots. Next, multiplication and division get carried out from left to right.
Finally, additions and subtractions get carried out from left to right. But that implies there is something interesting about them. This is a contradiction, and hence the order of operations form a paradox.
But, the correct interpretation according to the rules mentioned above, is: For instance, if I paste in: Google even gets this one right: Because people who make calculators hate children.
Also, a lot of programming languages use the standard order of operation rules, but then you have exceptions like Smalltalk. Oh, and in case you were wondering:Holy crap, this is an interesting question..
How would you make a million dollars in one month? But seriously, let’s say I kidnapped one of your kids (and not the ugly one, but the good one).and you had to come up with a $1,, bucks by the end of the month to get him back.

The existence of intellectuals is more ubiquitous today than ever. Many are those who contend for public attention, credibility, and money as a reward for their wits, not to mention the very status of intellectual. Fundamentals Name. The symbol used by mathematicians to represent the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter is the lowercase Greek letter π, sometimes spelled out as pi, and derived from the first letter of the Greek word perimetros, meaning circumference.
In English, π is pronounced as "pie" (/ p aɪ /, py).
In mathematical use, the lowercase letter π (or π in sans-serif font. If you do decide to refinance some or all of your loans, I would appreciate it if you would use the links on the site.
It is a significant source of revenue for us and I have negotiated a special deal with many of the companies for you that you cannot get by going to them directly.
7/9 - 2/3 = 1/9.
Lowest common denominator is nine, so the first fraction in the question 7/9 stays the same. Since 3 goes into 9 three times, you are going to multiply 3 times the top number in the second fraction, so 3x2 making the top number 6.
