6÷2(1+2) = ? This expression can be simplified to yield 9 two ways and not be misunderstood by the majority. The obvious is to multiply 6/2 by (1+2) 1+2=3 times 6/2=3 thus 3 X 3 = 9 The second way to simplify is to covert it to a fraction as shown below. 6(1+2)/2. So you have 6 x 3 divided by 2 6x3 =18/2 18/2 = 9 *always remove the parenthesis by solving whats in them first. It is as simple as 1+2x3

This expression can be solved to yield 1 several ways using rules that are commonly believed to be correct. 6÷2(1+2) = ? 6÷2(3) = ? prioritize 2(3) as an implied multiplication like ab, so 6÷6=1 or 6÷2(1+2) = ? the next operation has a name, I forget what it is.. 6÷(2+4) = ? 6÷6=1 or interpret ÷ as a fraction, again 6÷6=1 > It is as simple as 1+2x3 > No it isn't. (6/2)(1+3) is as simple as 1+2x3 6÷2(1+2) = ? is a confusing expression. https://math.berkeley.edu/~gbergman/misc/numbers/ord_ops.html I'm not saying 9 is wrong, the expression is poor. Now obsess about something else.

They are automatically removed from the expression. 6÷2(1+2) = ? 6÷2(3) = ? so this (3) does not exist anymore it turns into 6÷2 x 3 = you idiot.
