[quote:Anonymous Coward 1327341:MV8xNDczMDcwXzI0Mjc0Mzk5XzNDODZGNzU=] 9 or 1? Substitute the parenthesis with y and work out y backwards using the two different answers. When y = 3, we have a winner. 6÷2y = ? Firstly, if the answer is 9; 6÷2y = 9; 3÷y = 9; y = 3÷9; y = 0.3333333333 recurring, which is not (1+2) Secondly, if the answer is 1; 6÷2y = 1; 3÷y = 1; y = 3÷1; y = 3 which is (1+2) The answer is 1.

Alright, there's a lot of self-proclaimed experts around these parts. Let's see how your logic holds up against some basic mathematics.
6÷2(1+2) = ?
I'll give two hints. This is
a trick question, and there is only
All tools used for computation are fair game.
(Yes, I saw this somewhere else and decided to post it here.)
Best of luck to all you geniuses .
