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


Distribution is the reverse of factoring. When the fuck did you ever see 6÷2 factored from a number??
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32057798

errr what? didn't you previously reply "Sure does, only if the original equation had parentheses around the (6÷2) then you would be all set."

did you change your mind? does (6 ÷ 2) * (1+2) use the Distributive Property or not?
