    Well only thing is that the 2 isn't part of the paranthesis....
    Also doesn't ppl learn in school that 2(x+y) = 2*(x+y)? You can't just magically turn it into (2*(x+y))
    This thread is not stupid in any way cuz of the nonexisting "*" or paranthesis around 6/2. It's the way math works lol!

    Actually it's more like 63% because you lack the comprehension.

    You would be right if it wasn't because the 2 is LINKED to the parenthesis, if there had been an operator you would have been right.

    Way too obvious, the best trolls are suttle.

    Also it's 9. Parenthesis, then left to right. Hurr.

    you multiplay first, then divide!
    Division and multiplication are ranked equaly. As sutch i'm right.

    you do this first (1+2) which is 3 leaving 6÷2*3 which in tern leaves 3 times 3 which is 9... now burn in my fire
    The sun has set on this mortal world fools make peace with your end for the hour of twilight falls!

    I stopped reading this thread at page 3, so this has probably been answered plenty times by now, but here I go anyway.
    There IS an answer, and the question is not ambiguous. There are priority rules for a reason.
    6÷2(1+2) =
    6÷2.3 =
    3.3 =
    First parenthesis, then multiplication and division with the same priority, so left to right.

    I can't stay in this thread any longer. It's actually enraging me.

    Brackets first

    6/2 (3)

    M = D, so therfore we go left to right in order of operations:

    so therefore

    6/2 = 3

    so therfore 3(3) = 9

    Using the normal rules of math, you'll get the number 1.
    Numbers standing outside () have prio over divation.
    I've the highest grade in all mathclasses I've been in for the last 7 years (I'm 18) and this is atleast how we count in Sweden

    I love all the people who are posting by only reading the first post and ignoring the fact that they've been proved wrong 10 pages ago
