Since no one wants to give you a serious answer, here's one.
They're the same level because they're the exact same operation, as far as math is concerned. Division literally just means 'multiply by the reciprocal.' Just like subtraction just means 'addition by the opposite.' In other words, '2 divided by X' literally just means '2 times 1/X.' It's all still multiplication. If and when you take higher-level math, you'll very frequently have to change division to multiplication and vise-verse to make equations work.
Frankly, the biggest problem with this equation is that the obelus really shouldn't ever be used in a written equation (which is the division symbol being used here.) Most mathematicians nowadays favor a 'vinculum' which is basically just a fraction bar, and it avoids any of this confusion from occurring, as you can more clearly see if writer wants you to multiply first. There's also 'solidus' which is just a slanted line, and that's way better as well.
