Like me, he wasn't listening the day we were taught to expand out brackets.

@Matt85 And this is how a lot of people get this wrong. Order of operations are very simple. I'm glad that you changed back when math was getting harder, this guy remained an idiot.

I thought 6 to the 6th power was 36. I can't remember tbh

@SomeMichGuy how's that called generalization it doesn't generalize anything -_- I hate math

SomeMichGuy 路 M

@xSiFiGamer2016x Good job!

@bunnieivy The binomial theorem gives one the ability to calculate

(a + b)^n

for any n, as a series of n + 1 terms.

So it generalizes the specific examples to any n.

Or you can write out Pascal's triangle...do it to n = 20...lmao.

The formula is obviously a generalization, and makes having a bunch of specific examples unnecessary.

5 squared is 25

**xSiFiGamer2016x**路 22-25, M

@fanuc2013 Right, but this guy thinks it's 13. There are people who makes mistakes and fix them, and some who think they're right are wrong and keep being wrong.

This new Communist Math, will definitely, take us to the Moon, and back!!! Oh yeah!!!

馃 but the answer is 25

**xSiFiGamer2016x**路 22-25, M

@WhateverWorks Yeah, exactly. 馃槅

@xSiFiGamer2016x ok-ok good.. I was wondering if I was misunderstanding the joke because it seemed too obvious.

Ahaha the epitome of common core math at its best

SomeMichGuy 路 M

The missing part is intriguing.

But interpreting

(2 + 3)^2

as

2^2 + 3^2

lmao.

Shows how important cross terms are!

I sure hope that dude doesn't design aircraft for a living.

@NudasPriest I hope this guy knows how to read deals for food and clothing, and I mean percentages. 馃槅

**xSiFiGamer2016x**路 22-25, M

@DDonde The best I could think of was that person used the exponent to go in both numbers, got the answers for those numbers, then added them to get 13. But we all know that's not how it goes. 馃槅

**xSiFiGamer2016x**路 22-25, M

@WhateverWorks Yeah, I get where that dude was coming from, but PEMDAS (or BODMAS) is a way to go to get the right answers. Some people are so sure of it and they don't check their answers, which is why I found that post funny. 馃槅

MonaMoona 路 36-40, F

2+3 x 2+3 = 13

**xSiFiGamer2016x**路 22-25, M

@MonaMoona It's not 13 though.

MonaMoona 路 36-40, F

@xSiFiGamer2016x yes it is I just calculated 2+3 = 5 x2+3 = 13 I don鈥檛 know I also got 11

**xSiFiGamer2016x**路 22-25, M

@MonaMoona That's not even close, either. In order to get the right answer, you need to follow the order of operations, and a formula called the binomial theorem.
