9 – 3 ÷1/3 + 1
Do you know the correct answer?
This expression went viral in Japan a few years ago and only 60% of Japanese 20-year-olds could solve it correctly.
So why is it that most of the Long-View students solved this problem correctly (during the 6th week of school, no less)? Long-View kids know to look at a complex expression and....
