Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
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 NOT a trick question, and there is only 1 correct answer.

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 .

haven't done maths in over 20 years so might be a bit wrong :)

6÷2(1+2) = ?

2x(1+2)=6

6/6=1

If you mean 6÷2*(1+2)
It is 6÷6 and that is 1

parenthesis first

6÷2(3) =

then multiplication

6÷6 =

then division

6÷6 = 1

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
lol
the between brackets should be calculed first
so
1+2 = 3
that would be 6÷2(3)
2(3) = 6
6÷6 = 1

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
... You guys realize this is the same equation as 6/2(1+2) ?

Might be too early.

CAUTION

This post may seem irrelevant because I am trying to state that this equation is equal to

6
___ =

2(1+2)

Using the / as shorthand may be misleading.

Third grade math. It's order of operations. Whatever happens within those parentheses happens first.

6 / 2(1+2)

6 / (2+4)

6 / (6)

6 / 6

6/6=1
