Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@ 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just in case you look this up again, the answer is 9 and not 1. Your question is \[6\div2 x (1+2)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We first solve the bracket 1+2 to get 3. So the question becomes \[6\div2\times3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As per BODMAS/PEDMAS we have to carry out division first and then multiplication. so carrying out division first, we get, \[3\times3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually, per BODMAS, multiplication and division carry the same weight, but the expression should be evaluate lefttoright. So yes, the answer is 9.
