    I think its one, since if you use BEDMAS then you do the 1+2 first so you have 6/2(3) then you just simplify that so you have 6/6 so that equals 1

    1+2 is three then order of operations from left to right making 6/2=3, 3*3 is 9

    in that case it would be 9. If 6 would have been over the entire equation it would be one

    even if you distribute the 2 to the 1 and the 2 and then add them, its still 1...quote from teacher...also says multiplication comes first

    6/2(2+1) following the PEMDAS rule, the answer comes out to be 9. parenthesis, exponents, multiplication OR division, ANY ORDER!! (remember that), addition OR subtraction!! sooo...lots of people forget that part.(: 6/2(3) 3(3) =9
