Because that is what it means.

2(1+2) = 2 x (1+2)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27301486

That does NOT exempt you from applying distribution OR removing parentheses first.

Has NO ONE seen ANY of these references??!?!?!?

Distribute BEFORE "pedmas" used to REMOVE parentheses too: [link to www.algebra.com]

Get Rid of parentheses with Distribution:

If there is some factor multiplying the parentheses, then the only way to get rid of the parentheses is to multiply using the distributive law.

The factor multiplaying the paranthesis is 3.

6 ÷ 2 x (1+2)

= 3 x (1+2)

= 3 x (1) + 3 x (2)

= 9
