1 or 9, depending on your country. In Russia it is 9. Because in Russia dividing and multiplaying are of the same level and being solved left to right. Fortunately we do not have a confusing PEMDAS...

In a respectable setting, it would be clarified with parens whether one does the multiplication before the division (since there's a bias toward that), or works left to right and therefore the reverse in this case.
