Don't need luck. Just won :) You can't argue math. It is the only thing in the universe we know for sure works correctly.

The answer is 9.

9. You have to do each calculation in the order in which it appears.

3/1=3
times (1+2)-three
3 times 3=9

I think it is that people are mistaking how the working of parenthetic items out are handled. After the inner items have been worked out, the Parenthetic order for that item no longer exists as the item is not truthfully within parentheses then. They stay to represent a multiplicative relationship that it may have with a neighboring item.

OMG the answer is 9. WTF is so hard to understand. At first glance for a brief second I saw 1. In the end it took all of 15 seconds to realize the answer is 9. 9,9,9,9,9,9,9,9,9 and today the answer is still 9.

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

I can tolerate idiots that think it should be known how many shooters shot JFK.

It's stupid to think that if you know one fact.

Six months before he had his brains blown out of the back of his head, he signed executive order 11110 to begin to eliminate the Federal Reserve.

Now I ask you, does it make a shits bit of fucking difference how many shots and shooters there were?

The fact that you can't put that together doesn't bother me so much but, if you get any answer other than 9 you deserve what the Federal Reserve is doing to you!!!

Dumb shits!!!

1?! Seriously? Come on, this is BASIC algebra. SOOOOO disappointed.

1+2=3

Now looks like this
3 divided by 1 times 3 equals x [3/1*3=x]

3 divided by 1 = 3

now looks like this

3 times 3 equals x [3*3=x]
3 times 3 equals 9. [9=x]

Super simple.
