I know the truth really hurts, and accepting you are wrong is something on one is willing to do, because everyone behind a keyboard is right. Read the following; any one of them. You CAN read, can't you?
Yes, but you didn't do step 1. So before anyone else says "Wrong" you may want to actually read something and educate yourself, and then prove ALL of the following references incorrect.

See below:

If there is some factor multiplying the parentheses, then the only way to get rid of the parentheses is to multiply using the distributive law.

"When simplifying expressions with parentheses, you will be applying the Distributive Property." -purplemath
These guys got it right, they use "Parentheses" in the order of operations to require Distributive Property.

6 ÷ 2(1+2) = 6 ÷ [2(2) + 2(1)] = 6 ÷ (4+2) = 1

or,

z = 6
a = 2
b = 1

z ÷ a(a+b) = z ÷ (a^2 + ab) = 6 ÷ (2^2 + 2*1) = 6÷(4+2) = 1

Order of operations is wrong.

You're using the second mulitplication before the first division.

Math is simply not truly applied.

I agree the answer is 9 ,i just worked it out wasn't hard to do even though this type of math wasn't in operation when i was in school or i was too thick back then probably the latter .

Did they teach distribution in high school in the last 15 years? How in lord's name was I able to top my engineering calculus courses if I cannot do a simple problem like this??
If you want to say 6÷3(3) = 6÷3*3, you just left out the parentheses!! Can you leave out addition signs and negative signs at will too ???? Did you read anything on this page?? I love how everyone ignores basic math properties and then is adamant that they are right... it is so asinine .

Re: Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
This is how you are supposed to do it, with an explanation of WHY...

Distribute 2 into the parentheses. Why? because it is a factor of the original terms INSIDE them, and cannot be ripped apart. I will show you why:
6 = 4+2 = 2(2+1) = 2(3) The 2 is a common factor of 4 & 2.
No matter which way you view it, the value 6 MUST maintain its value. Just as you cannot take the 4 from (4+2) and divide it into a number with the "+ 2". I cannot take the 2 from 2(2+1) and divide it into another number without the (2+1).
You ARE allowed to distribute before division, or any other operator, since you are allowed to simplify any equation first. There are MANY references which state "Remove parentheses by distribution" Try Googling that as a search term.
6÷2(2+1) = 6÷(4+2) = 1
Now, some people have argued that you don't NEED to distribute the 2; you just add the 2+1, and end up with 2(3). Then they go on the say that this is the same as 2*(3). WRONG! You STILL have parentheses and STILL need to distribute that 2 inside them, for the reasons discussed about factoring above. Therefore you have this:
6÷2(3) and must distribute like this:
6÷2(3+0) = 6÷[2(3) + 2(0)] = 6÷6 = 1
These people who get 9 try and rip the 2 away from the parentheses by inserting a times symbol like this:
6÷2*(3), and then do the division of 6÷2 first. I explained the illegalities of doing this, since the 2 is a factor of the 2+1.
Lastly, 6÷2 is NOT (6/2), as in (6/2)(2+1). This is totally incorrect, since it lacks that parentheses in the original equation. Check any online or written text. Leading fractions as a coefficient ALWAYS have ( ) around them.
