for the answer to be 9, the equation would have to be (6÷2)(1+2)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27550461

you don't need the brackets for the division part, order of operations is from left to right, multiplication and division have equal precedence, but division comes first (farthest to the left) in this problem

Brackets first, then multiplication and division from left to right, then addition and subtraction

the answer is 9
