And he says this: 6-1x0+2/2
Seriously. And I'm all, "Uh... you need my help with that?"
Then he tells me this is some kinda problem that's been running around the internet for ages and it wound up on the Facebook page he and a bunch of his co-workers use to talk to each other outside work. Maybe you've all seen it before, but it was new to me.
My husband says, "I didn't think I needed your help, but I'm not getting the same answer as everyone else."
Him: "They're all saying it's 5. That's not right, is it?"
Now I understand why so many of them come to him/me with questions about their kids' math homework. I let my husband explain to them where they went wrong. This has apparently garnered a lot of, "Boy, do I feel stupid now!" comments, especially from the poor guy who told the first two people to post the answer "5" that they're "so smart." LOL. Meanwhile, I looked it up and the number of people who are insisting the answer is 5 is rather alarming to me - especially those who say so after it has been explained to them step-by-step.
