What you're doing wrong is that you're not learning that one way is Americans way (Hence the answer 2) and other way is Australian way (hence the answer 288)..

I can simply say its 2 and/or 288 both? I guess this mathematics doesn't have both answers <shrug>

So? What's the difference? They are still RIGHT answers, but I guess 2 is the only right answer for Australians...

They are the same thing. The only difference is we say brackets, you say parenthesis. You say exponential, we say operation. The rest is EXACTLY the same. So the difference doesn't really impact having 2 different answers.

Then why keep going with this? That's the only difference, so what? We're after answers and what makes it as an answer, nothing else.

You said there are 2 answers in America and 1 here. There is only 1 answer, 288.

Ok, you don't have to be an asshole about it. But, yes that would make you correct. My bad.

10. 42. The answer is always 42.

21

12. The fact that there is 7 pages of discussion dedicated to a 3 step equation leads me to believe that mpgh is populated by retards.
