Some people say 1 some people say 9.
Let’s start with order of operations:
We don’t have exponents or adding/subtracting (the addition operation already happened in the parenthesis step)
Ok, so following that we get:
6÷2(3) - parenthesis
6÷6 - MULTIPLICATION
1 - DIVISION
Some people say that the division is equal to multiplication. So M and D are grouped together. Example:
3•3 = 9
The general consensus in the math community is 1 because they have established that multiplication goes before division.
What do you guys think?
