The question is deliberately ambiguous
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1368046

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.
 Quoting: Syrius

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.


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

Google is reading the equation as (6/2)(1+2)

Notice, the one I put is up: 6÷2(1+2)

Now, I'm not a programmer, but I'll venture a guess as the script doesn't allow for equations of this magnitude to be processed correctly. Therefore, it's creating it's own version, one that exists within the parameters of its script.
