The question is not ambiguous. There is only one possible way to read it and the answer is 9.

Shame on you, Germany. You confessed this was your second math thread; yet, you have learned nothing from your previous experience.

Wow, you posted the original expression and you don't even know the answer? You think it's not 9???

Order of operations means division is evaluated before multiplication.

6÷2(1+2)
3(1+2)
3(3)
9

I mean, you can even type it into google and it will tell you 9. What the heck is wrong with you people???
