multiply by 3, add the 1 and 2 for 3, multiply by 1 and divide by 3 to get x by itself. x = 1

Just multiply the 3 by itself to move to the side with x. simplify the problem so you are arent confusing your order of opertions. Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally. Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiply, Divide, Add, Subtract.

Can't believe people still think it's 1 even after the order of operation was posted. For those people who need links.

Uhhhh.... In the order of operations multiplication and division have the same priority Jack you find your answer by going left to right when you come to a situation where you can either divide or multiply.
I can't believe you think you are more intelligent than others.

Follow the rules known as the "Order of Operations":

Rule 1: First perform any calculations inside parentheses.
Rule 2: Next perform all multiplications and divisions, working from left to right.
Rule 3: Lastly, perform all additions and subtractions, working from left to right.

3/1(1+2) = x

Perform operations inside parentheses first.

1+2 = 3

so, 3/1(3) = x

Perform multiplication from left to right.

1(3) = 3

so, 3/3 = x

Perform division from left to right.

3/3 = 1

so, x = 1

Here is a link to a page that helps to illustrate how to solve mathematics equations employing the rules known as the "Order of Operations":

Re: How To Solve This Equation? 3/1(1+2) = x
3/1(1+2)=x
Start by multiplying both sides by 3 to eliminate some numbers...
You're left with :
1(1+2)=3x
Simplify to :
1(3)=3x
3=3x
Then divide both sides by 3 to get x :
X=1

x = 9. I can´t believe some idiots actually say that x = 1. You divide 3 by 1 before you multiply with the parentheses.

because the Order of operations was not followed to get 1.
9 is correct

Parentheses first. Then multiply to get the answer out of parentheses. Then divide.

X=1

And algebra fucking rocks....if you know how to do it.
