THat's a toothy grin, for sure.

A perfect example of why you should use as much parenthesis as needed to make the problem clear.

Or a multiplication symbol where it's implied.

6 / 2 * (2+1), read left to right.

Yes, but that assumes that everyone uses PEMDAS. Older methods give multiplication and division the same priority. If you want to make damn certain there is no way to misinterpret things, parenthesis ALWAYS works, no matter what order of precedence is used.

That is awesome.

mooom! can we get one of those? pleeease?

Nope, those aren't stairs - they are part of a waterfall water feature. Despite being where you would expect stairs, and looking a lot like stairs.

The building is "Ideo Q Chula" in Bangkok, Thailand

I thought that math problems should be solved from right to left when parentheses are in use until preceded by an actual mathematical symbol (kinda like how you read japanese manga) so that wouldn't that phone be wrong.

Random math website says left->right.

How I learned math, the phone is correct. Parentheses only apply to what's inside them. Multiplication/division have equal precedence and are done left->right, then addition/subtraction the same way.

That said, if I had to program the parser to actually do the math, I'd probably make the same mistake and assume that anything in between two known operators (+, -, / *) had to be evaluated together first. It certainly would save me some time.

Edit: this random math website actually addresses the problem:

C compiler taught me division has precedence over multiplication.

i read it as an indictment of homophobia among the deeply closeted.

It looks like a 'Little Britain' sketch.

Dr Lector recommends the fava bean dip with that

Oh, there it is, staring me in the face. Sorry. Hadn't had my coffee yet.
