Math 

Math, even in its simplest form, can confuse the hell out of anyone, which is why this math problem is

driving people crazy. The question, posed by popular YouTube account MindYourDecisions, was originally

posted on Aug. 31, 2016 but is making the rounds across the internet again. Why? People keep arriving to

two different answers: 1 and 9. To solve the problem, you need to remember PEMDAS, otherwise known

as the order of operations. In case you forgot, PEMDAS standards for: parentheses, exponents,

multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction. To solve a problem with PEMDAS, first you solve

anything dealing with parentheses and exponents, and then move left to right with the remaining operations.

Try it for yourself below.

6/2(1+2)=

Ready with your answer? Perhaps you did the following: 6/2(3) leads to (3)(3) with a final answer of 9.

Others did something else: 6/2(3) gives you the next equation, 6/6, and an answer of 1. The correct answer:

9! According to the man behind this YouTube account, Presh Talwalkar, people get one as the answer due

to an old way of interpreting the division sign. "Historically the symbol / was used to mean you should

divide by the entire product on the right of the symbol," he wrote in a blog post. So, if you got 1 as your

answer, it's not right, but not your fault either for learning this method. Still confused. Listen to the

explanation at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URcUvFIUIhQ.

The Coward Stephen Aryan Out June 8th

 

 

The Coward

Stephen Aryan

From the author of the Age of Darkness and Age of Dread trilogies, comes a new fantasy epic

Kell Kressia is a legend. Aged just seventeen, he set out on an epic quest to slay the Ice Lich and save the world. He returned victorious, but alone.

Now the call has come for Kell to take up his sword again, and venture north to defest a new threat. But Kell has a secret; he's a coward, and he has no intention of risking his neck for anyone..

"Packing in an epic’s worth of action and feeling, this thought-provoking fantasy argues that even the most vicious monster battles are less harrowing than the struggles within men’s souls. This is a knockout."
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
