what it comes down to is that some people say that the expression is the same as (6 ÷ 2) * (1+2) and some people say that it means 6 ÷ (2 * (1+2))

BUT WHICH ONE IS CORRECT????
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31519086


It means 6 ÷ (2 * (1+2))

This is proven with Distribution Property.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32057798


(6 ÷ 2) * (1+2) uses the Distributive Property as well.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31519086


Sure does, only if the original equation had parentheses around the (6÷2) then you would be all set.
FAIL.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32057798


so the only reason you do the multiplication before the division is because the 6÷2 doesn't have parentheses around it?
