Division and multiplication have equal priority. It is calculated in order of the formula itself, so left then right.

1+2=3
6%2=3

So the correct answer is 9.

You fucks, you cant multiply 2 into the parenthesis buy itself, pemdas bedmas shit doesnt apply here. Only + and - decides parts, however as it is a 6 divided by 2 its only one part, so you would have to multiply 6/2 as a fraction into the paranthesis which then is 3*3 = 9. Its basic calculus

PEMDAS is for children.

Multiplication and division resolve at the same time. Since diving by x is the exact same as multiplying by (1/x).

Because of that it can be rewritten:

(1+2)(2)(1/6)

The answer is 9.

You can think of division as the same thing as multiplying by the reciprocal.

Question should be phrased as this

6 / 2 x 3 (ignore that bracket BS slown shit down).

Referring to top statement, 6 / 2 = 6 x (1/2) = 6 x 0.5.

So question becomes 6 * 0.5 x 3 = 3 x 3 = 9.

PEMDAS.

Parentheses first.
Exponents. ( Power, Square Roots, etc )
Multiplication and Division ( left to right )
Adition and Subtraction ( left to right )

So looking a the calculation, the correct way is:

Vague notation

Different methods of notation actually differ on whether you treat 2x as a single term and resolve it internally first or whether you split it up and add the implied 2 * x and resolve it as if it were written as such.

Pro-tip: 1 used to be the standard answer. MOST institutions have switched notation convention so that 9 is the correct answer (at least by western standards). But some people use old textbooks, or learned abroad, or have learned from teachers who have never had this issue come up as it's so fucking rare because HOLY HELL JUST WRITE YOUR EQUATION CLEARLY YOU DEGENERATE FUCK.

To clarify, if it were written as 6/2(1+2), then it is assumed that 2(1+2) is in brackets, so it would be (2(1+2)). The order of multiplying and dividing is done left to right in this case since there are no implied brackets. This can be seen through some countries using BEDMAS instead of PEMDAS, (B for brackets, same as parenthesis, just a different name depending on country) the MD are switched, meaning that multiplication does not always come first, only when there are assumed brackets.

>>702432731
The problem as it is written is 6÷2(1+2) , the ÷ cannot be substituted with a fraction bar because they have different ranks on the order of operations. It is an illegal math move to do this. The bar ranks with parentheses, ÷ is interchangeable with *. therefore the problem must be solved as 6÷2(1+2) NOT 6 (over) 2(1+2) we do the parentheses first, so 6÷2(3), the parentheses are now no longer relevant, because the number inside is in it's simplest form. Every single number has implied parentheses around it.
6÷2(3)
(6) ÷(2)(3)
6÷2*3,
or even converting the division to multiplication by a reciprocal (a legal math move)
(6)(1 (over) 2)(3)
are all correct ways to write this problem and mean exactly the same thing. Using pemdas, where md and as are interchangeable, we work from left to right, so (3)(3) or
3*3= 9

Who gives a flying fuck about PEDMAS or PEMDAS here's how this equation works.

Let's start with the base equation:

6/2(1+2)

From this step all you do is simply the equation:

6 / 2(3)

All that this means is: 6 / 2 * 3
From here equations are read from left to right.
6 / 2 * 3
= 3 * 3
= 9

For the answer to be 1 the equation would read:
6 / (2(1+2))

Multiplication and division take place IN ORDER! Same thing with addition and subtraction!

6÷2×(1+2)
6÷2×(3)
3×(3)

If you divide by 2 its the same as multiplying with 0.5

Not just 2
He turned
÷ 2 into × 0.5
which is the same thing

Fractions aren't numbers.

Bill has 3 Bananas. Jill has 4 bananas. How many more bananas does Bill Have?

How is 0.999... the same as 1?
They are two numbers.
0.999... + 0.000...0001 would equal to 1.
