Ha, it is giving me 6 now, lol.

Fix the equation above.

When I clicked the link it is saying 6/2(1X2)

Fix teh equation above it. It gives 9.

The post I copied your response from said you thought the answer was 9?
 Quoting: Forgotten


I have found calcs and sites and profs that say both. I originally said 1 and am just sticking to it out of spite, lol. And the fact that it is more of a poorly written expression than anything, there are good arguments for both, imo.

Link me one please. I cant find a single math website that gives anything besides 9.
 Quoting: Forgotten


I have not searched any online calcs again yet, but here is why I say 1.

6÷2(1+2)
6÷2(3)
6÷6 = 1
Or
6÷2(1+2)
distribute 2(1+2) = 2+4 = 6
6÷6 = 1

Now I understand some will argue you should not distribute first. But according to those using their pedmas that is p, right? Oh, order of ops, lol.
