2*3\3= so we have 2times three that is being divided by 3. first we times (2) and (3) = 6 than we divide the six by 3 which gives us the answer 2.

lgbasallote Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
right that's what unkle is saying.. is it \[\implies 2 \times 3 \text \ 3 \implies 2 \times 3/3 \implies 2 \times 1 \implies 2\] or \[\implies 2 \times 3 \text \ 3 \implies 6 \text \ 3 \implies 3/6 \implies 1/2\]

unkle is asking how does the order of operations go in back division
 2 years ago

godorovg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so this question was about how a/b = b/a so the other answer than would 1/2 or 2 not just two.
