Some people say 1 some people say 9.

Let’s start with order of operations:

- Parenthesis
- Exponents
- Multiply
- Divide
- Add
- Subtract

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(1+2)

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:

6÷2(1+2)

6÷2(3)

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?
