If you meant 6/(2(1+2)) then simplify to get

6/6 which is 1

If you meant (6/2)(1+2) then simplify to get

3*3=9

This website is not very math friendly so it is important to be absolutely clear on your math questions in order to get accurate answers.

I say its 9. I don't understand how people get 1.

It is 9 no matter how you work it.

6/2(1+2)=3(3)=9

or 6/2(1+2)= 6/2+12/2 = 18/2 =9

6 divided by 2 (3). It's supposed to be thought of like this. 6 divided by 2 x (3). Since the parentheses is first, that means you solve the operation with the parentheses first. So that would be 2 x (3). Then you get 6, and after that you get 1 once you divide it.

6/2(1+2) = 6/2 (3) =3(3) =9

6/2(1+2) = 6/2 (3) =18/2=9

Using the distributive property

6/2(1+2) = 3(1+2) = 3x1 + 3x3 = 3+6= 9

6/2(1+2) = 6/2x1 + 6/2 x 2= 6/2+12/2=18/2=9

There is NO way you can get 1.

Order of Operations goes: PEMDAS. We have parentheses first. So we add 1+2 and we get 3. So now we have 6/2 (3). I think it would depend on how you're interpreting it. If that slash is a fraction, then the answer is 9. If that slash means divided by, then the answer is 1.

So you divide 6/2 which is 3, then multiply it by 3, which = 9

It's 1. People get 1 because the distribute first then multiply, then divide. They add the numbers in the parentheses and them multiply it by the 2 outside to get 6. Then what's left is 6 divided by 6 to get 1. 6/2(1+2), 6/2(3), 2(3)=6, 6/6=1

PEMDAS!!

1) A computer would compute 6/2(1+2) as 6/2(3) = 3 x 3 =

9.

That is also what PEMDAS does.

2) However, on this website, people

entering 6/2(1+2) mean (6/2)(1+2)

which would still be

9.

3) Or the person entering could mean

6/[2(1+2)] = 6/[2(3)] = 6/6 =

1.

1. I have an IQ of 141 as determined by mensa.org. You would do 1+2 as it is in parentheses. U would get three. Then do 2*3 which would end up as 6. Then its 6/6 which comes out to 1.

ok its 9 guys. even the calculator says so. use PEMDAS.
