Don’t be surprised when they bring a gun to school

that’s not even complicated you literally add 26 and 19 then simplify 2025 over 45 to be 45/1 then multiply 24 and 45 making it 1080 then add 1080 and 47 and unlock the iPad with the passcode 1-1-2-7 god bless

looks like we found ourselves a nerd

looks like we found someone capable of basic math

how is that basic math

this is basic math

Not that people do anything difficult in 6th grade math but the teacher could have at least done a negative exponent or three…

Here’s how House would do it. Obviously the fraction isn’t a repeating decimal or the full answer would be, too (time: 3s). It probably isn’t a decimal at all as the answer is probably an integer (2s). 45 squared is thus evenly divisible by what’s underneath, oh lookee, it’s 45. 45 squared divided by 45 is 45 (9s).

24 times 45 (plus an additional 47) is the same as 25 times 45 plus 2 (12s). 25 * 45 is 10 * 45 = 450, twice = 900, plus half again, 225 = 1125, plus 2 = 1127 (17s).

Check on calculator using original formula = a different path through the arithmetic = less likely to duplicate a systemic error “confirming” an incorrect answer, because that’s what nerds do.
