    PEMDAS. parenthesis: 1+3 = 3 now you can solve from left to right. 6/3 = 3 3(3) = 9.

    Correct mathematical language leaves no ambiguity. Some one reading it for the first time should no exactly what to do with extra brackets. They are not idiots. It is just someone contriving a question.

    What is incorrectly labeled about the equation? Yes someone reading it for the first time should *know what to do with parenthesis. They are idiots. I don't see any ambiguity.

    In math, you may or may not believe it, 2(1+2) is considered one term.
