Doesn't multiplication come before division? 2x3=6/6=1 ???

I believe it may be a trick question. It's not written correctly therefore open to interpretation.

Does 6/2 (1+2) equal 9 or 1? - Yahoo!7 Answers

I'm so very bored.

its 1

and heres why just to recap :

that answer is from my old A level maths teacher, (with many degrees in maths) lol

effectively you cant write it properly on a computer so it fools some people into thinking 9. especially when people try BODMAS (or other GCSE type tactics)

The question is; 6÷2(1+2)

Working on a single line method, which you would unless otherwise stated, it's 9.

Toolbag math nerds using semantics...

The CORRECT way to write the sum is like Aysee said; 6/(2(1+2))

Therefore the answer to the original questions IS 9, and ANY math program (matlab etc) will tell you the same.
