Was I the only one who thought there are four operations - addition,
subtraction, multiplication, and division? After trying the problem,
I knew what had to work, but went to Dr. Math to see how "operations"
was defined. I learned something, but it's the first time I've seen
6 operations defined. It was a good lesson for my students, because
it gave them a reason to check out the Dr.Math resources. We had just
finished order of operations, so this was a great problem for them to
work on.
