## Main Question or Discussion Point

On my assesment it had a question that said x+3/3, when x=3. I thought you do 3/3 first so did the teacher, but when he looke at the answer key it showed you were suppose to do 3+3 then divide by 3. And also on my test booklet, it doesn't have 4 which is the answer if you do it with PEMDAS. Instead they have 2, the answer you get when you add first... :?: Isn't that weird? The same thing happened on my state test. On one of the sample answers the state test gives a question just like that and when my teacher and the student found out the answer on the answer key, the answer only works if you add the two number then divide. And also the state test doesn't offer you the answer you'll get when you do it with PEMDAS. Who's right and who's wrong and what is the correct way to do this? :|
