9 or 1?

Substitute the parenthesis with y and work out y backwards using the two different answers. When y = 3, we have a winner.
6÷2y = ?

Firstly, if the answer is 9;
6÷2y = 9;
3÷y = 9;
y = 3÷9;
y = 0.3333333333 recurring, which is not (1+2)

Secondly, if the answer is 1;
6÷2y = 1;
3÷y = 1;
y = 3÷1;
y = 3 which is (1+2)

The answer is 1.

End of thread.
