Message Subject Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?

The 2 is not inside of the parenthesis therefore need not be distributed. In order to mandate the distribution of 2, the problem would have to read as 6÷(2(1+2)). Since it is not, PEMDAS works it out just fine. 6÷2(1+2) becomes 6÷2(3), which is the same as 6÷2*3. Simple order of operations.
