This is a poorly written problem and the answer is 9. No I am not inbred, just have more logic than you.

What is the square root of 4?

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
In the order of operations, multiplication does NOT come before division. Which ever one comes first going from left to right is the problem you solve first. Therefore the answer is 9.

This is simple fucking math people.
Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2671891

Look it up, divison or multiplication goes first whichever comes first. the answer is one.

6/2(1+2)=?

2x(1+2)=6

2x(3)=6

6x=6

x=1

Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1455668

Lol, it has nothing to do with being on any level. Just using simple rules to a poorly stated problem.

I am not a math major, the highest college course I have taken in math would either be calc 2 or one of the higher stats courses I took. I see why some people say 1, but I am sticking to my original answer which is 1. I cannot believe I took a few minutes to look it up, but it supported my thoughts.

Keep thinking it is 1 all you want. My movie is now done loading far enough ahead, peace.

THe rules of Order Of Operations.

Rule 1: First perform any calculations inside parentheses.
Rule 2: Next perform all multiplications and divisions, working from left to right.
Rule 3: Lastly, perform all additions and subtractions, working from left to right.

Where does it say the other one is before the other?? left to right.. follow those rules.

you realize in an equation this, 2(3), goes first because of the parentheses, right? Parentheses first.

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
I love this meme.. the '1ers' are so effective in their shilling.

Division and multiplication are done in the order of which they appear in the equation after each calculation. Ditto with Addition/subtraction.

6÷2(2+1)

Step 1: Brackets

6÷2(3)

Step 2: There are no exponents

Step 3: Division/Multiplication

Now, this is where the 1'ers have their fun. For some reason, they think 2*3 is the next calculation. Some of them will even say, "everything in the brackets", well, all that is left in the brackets is 3. I don't know how this is anything other than a meme, an intentional joke by many-a people.

the next calculation, 6÷2, equals 3

3(3)

Step 4: Division/Multiplication

When a number is next to brackets, they are to be multiplied, after the operations inside the brackets are complete of course.

9!

For some reason, the 1'ers perceive the equation as

6÷(2(2+1)) -- In which case, the 2*3 operation would be completed, as it IS within brackets.

I don't understand the "1" joke. I can only understand cancer, and those who will get are the ones who believe the answer is "1".
