A Very Obscure Math Related Question on Facebook

Below are replies and responses which causes a debate. A very interesting debate I might add since many of these people use certain things like "I'm a math teacher" or "I teach math" or something similar as a justification of why they are right and others are wrong. In reality, if you were a true instructor, you would have done what a lot of these other commenters did and write both equations out using PEMDAS and without PEMDAS. This is something that should actually be taught, the conversation and discussion is more learning than a teacher telling their students their version of the right answer. This is how we got "alternative facts" today with Trump.
