Description: Eager for intellectual stimulation, Twilight makes her GREATEST INVENTION EVER! But what do her friends think about her creation?
They're both wrong. 48 divied by 2 x 9 + 3 is 219.
This was AWESOME! cant wait to read more from this author *yay*
@Anonymous I'm guessing you did that on a calculator exactly as you wrote that, Anon, but that's not how the equation should be calculated (as there are brackets involved).Let me just link this site:http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/48293from the DA comments, as it will illustrate why there appear to be two answers to this equation, so that everyone can go have a look.(Though personally, I think it's a bit of a loaded formula, I'd have made it a bit less ambiguous if I was doing it for real, not as a stimulus for discussion on the rules of mathematical priority.)Oh, and the story was quite amusing, too.
"What is forty-eight divided by two times nine plus three?"(48/2)9+3=24x9+3216+3219
Also can be...48/(2x9)+348/18+32.666(inf)+35.666(inf)Or...48/(2x9+3)48/(18+3)48/212.28571429Or even...48/2(9+3)48/2(12)24(12)288
The sotry is referring to the equation "48÷2(9+3) = ?" which is (apparently) something of a meme, because it is not clear which is right way to solve it. (See the in the second post for a better explanation.)
Mathematics is done in chronological order. When it's only multiplication and division with no parentheses, then it's solved left to right. For a demonstration, however, I will do it the "wrong" way.48/2(9+3)48/2(12)48/242This is also the number that appears in the story. However, seeing as how this is the incorrect mathematical syntax, Twilight is WRONG! HEAR ME?! WRONG!
@ anon hey i was gonna say that XD
This needs a Sequel fast! This story was awesome, and I really want to see the interaction of the Mane cast with the Metal Robot Unicorn.If somepony dose make a sequel might I suggest the name Guardian or Blind for the Robt Unicorn's name.Oh and as for the mathematical equations, everyone is wrong, the answer is 42! Always the answer is 42!
Ahh, yes that story made me giggle quite a few times.But I was gonna make a Robot Unicorn Attack fanfic. . . :(
Someone over at youtube said he was writing a fanfic where the mane cast would face off against the heavy metal unicorn.... Pretty flimsy evidence I know but he definitely will post it here if he knows about the site.Could be pretty epic :D"starts humming battlefield by blind guardian"
Ha, you all got trolled
Why are there so many chinese(?) bronies in google docs all of a sudden?
This story was awesome!
Cleverly made story. I liked it. Now we need Dash in the game.... oh wait.
48/2(9+3)1) =48/2 * 12 =48/24 =22) = 48*12 /2 = 288IT'S A CLIFFHANGER
I like how the robot unicorn made the trip all the way out to Fluttershy's cottage just to blow her off.
@Anonymous They seem to be Japanese. I'm not sure where they came from (well, Japan probably) but hey, somepony's got international appeal with their fic...
I'm afraid we need to use...*suspenseful sound* MATH! *dramatic music!*
I was expecting her to explode at pinkie randomnessFluttershy rage mode: ACTIVATED
I WANT TO RUN FOREVER
@Anonymous Harmony sounds like space core toward the end there...
Gawd this is a stupid meme.1) Do parenthesis.2) Do multiplication and divison in order, left to right.288. Any other answer is wrong.That said, you do have to pronounce the parens or it doesn't work.
It's 219. No brackets were mentioned.
Hey guys! Author...here.....-reads comments- my GOD all of you are nerds. Really, i just used the equation as an example; i literally stole it from knowyourmemes.com, thinking it would be a funny reminder. Didn't expect a nerdversation!Not that i don't love nerds. <3Twilight<3@Sigil: i don't plan to write a sequel. Maybe some grimdark writebrony will get on that. :3 Also, the answer's ALWAYS 42; why didn't Twilight know that?@Zanzibar: that wasn't me. o.o
@jenovaiiNo sequel? Then do you mind if I give it a try? I have a feeling that the reason why Twilight didn't know the answer is always 42, is because Twilight cant get past the bar tending section of the Guide with out making a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster for her self! xP
Jenovali, Please make more Mad scientist Twilight stories xD
@Sigil yeah, go for it, brony
Honestly, I was half expecting this to be made. Pretty decent.
