I'll put it in lamest terms.
People who think 1 is correct, are wrong.
People who think 9 is correct, are right.

technically both are right.
LEFT:
6 / 2 (1+2)
6 / 2 (3)
2*3 = 6
6 / 6 = 1

RIGHT:
6 / 2 (1+2)
6 / 2 (3)
6 / 2 = 3
3*3=9

>pic unrelated

the left is wrong because if you have both multiplication and division in one problem, you work it from left to right

I'm sitting here working out these problems in five seconds, because I'm boss, and it hits me. Why the **** would you need a calculator for this problem?

PEDMAS, HOW IT REALLY WORKS:
Parentheses
Exponents
Multiply/Divide
Addition/Subtraction

AND NOT LIKE THIS:
Parentheses
Exponents
Multiply
Divide
Addition
Subtraction

KTHX.

PEMDAS

Parenthesis>Exponents>Multiplication=Devision>Addition=Subtraction

Now, lets look at the equation 6/2(1+2)

PEMDAS states Parenthesis first (1+2) = 3 so now

6/2(3) or 6/2x3

Next is exponents which there are none so on to Multiplication -OR- Division. This rule states that you read the equasion like you would a sentence in english. and we now get an equation that looks like this :

(6/2)(3) = (3)(3)

Simplified:

3x3

=

9

9 is the correct answer. DONE! /thead.

Answer is 9   
You do parentheses first (1+2) =3   
You now have 6/2(3)   
Now you do division and multiplication in the same strep from LEFT to RIGHT, don't forget that.   
6/2 = 3   
Now you have 3(3)   
3(3) = 9   
Booyah!

it goes actually like this: 6:2 ( 1+2) ---> 6:2+3 ---> 3+3 ----> 6
User avatar #15 to #14 - noblexfenrir (01/20/2012) [-]
My ******* god, Fine I'll explain it to you if need be:
6/2(1+2)
First you do the parentheses--> 6/2 (3)
Then you DIVIDE becuase on PEMDAS multiplication and division are on the same level so it would be which ever comes first which IS LEFT TO RIGHT--> 3(3)

Then ******* multiply--> 9
