    i know the answer is 1 but people still think it's 9 which irritates me they say division is on the same level as multiplication and forget that parenthesis are still around

    lol, when you face division and multiplication, always start with which comes first ^_^ you have this : \[6 \div 2 \times 3\] start from the left, who comes first?

    @ flaasome, yeah I know. people forget parens which is annoying, not just in simple problems like these, but in complex problems such as (x+1 +x^2*X^2/3 what am i supposed to understand from that?

    yes, if there were no parenthesis then you would divide

    Just in case you look this up again, the answer is 9 and not 1. Your question is \[6\div2 x (1+2)\]

    We first solve the bracket 1+2 to get 3. So the question becomes \[6\div2\times3\]

    As per BODMAS/PEDMAS we have to carry out division first and then multiplication. so carrying out division first, we get, \[3\times3\]

    So the final answer is 9 and not 1!!!!!!!!!

    actually, per BODMAS, multiplication and division carry the same weight, but the expression should be evaluate left-to-right. So yes, the answer is 9.
