Message Subject Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?

It IS a trick question because the arithmetic layout is ambiguous.

6÷[2(1+2)] = 1

(6÷2)(1+2) = 9

It's not a difficult problem, it's just laid out wrong.

The question is deliberately ambiguous and that people get different answers is of no surprise.

You are retarded, its not a trick, its the rules of math, short notation maybe, but certainly fair game for second or third grade.
