If you think the equation should = 9 then it should look like this:

(6/2)(1+2)=

3*3 =9

but we have:

6/2(1+2)=

6/6 =1

because you do the sum in the bracket first.

So the answer is 1.

INCORRECT.

It is a poorly written problem in the least needs an extra set of parentheses to get the desired answer.
