Message Subject Math: 6÷2(1+2) = ?
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward

The factor multiplaying the paranthesis is 3.

6 ÷ 2 x (1+2)

= 3 x (1+2)

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

= 9

Do you SEE any parentheses around 6/2 ?? NO ! Parentheses are FIRST in the order of operations, not DIVISION, so if you want to distribute, you do that first! Since when is 6÷2 ever factored from a set of terms?? Distribution is factoring in reverse. You to get a handle on other concepts to solve this equation properly.
(4+2) = 2(2+1)
If you want to say this:
(6 + 3) = 3(2+1) = (6/2)*(2+1) you REQUIRE parentheses. Open any book on online PDF math books... they ALL say this.
