How is frequency related to pitch? Hear the music we love emerge from pure mathematical beats.

We talk to Stuart Johnston who uses mathematics to find out how noise pollution in the oceans impacts whales.

Generating electricity without the use of fossil fuels is not just an engineering and industrial challenge, it is also a huge mathematical challenge.

In this podcast author Coralie Colmez shares insights into her novel

*The irrational diary of Clara Valentine*.We talk to early career mathematicians who spent some of their summer holiday solving problems posed by industry — such as how to blend a perfect smoothie!

6÷2 = 6×½.

6÷2(1+2) = 6×½(1+2).

The ambiguity is caused by people who prioritize implied multiplication over stated multiplication. So they are using PEiMDAS/BOiDMAS, not PEDMAS/BODMAS.

Under PEMDAS/BODMAS, implied multiplication is the same as multiplication, so:

6÷2(1+2) = 6÷2×(1+2) = 6×½(1+2), and the result of that is always 9.
