I already know the correct answer to this math equation but curious how many people do it correct.I found it on another web site and you would not believe how many got it wrong
6/2(1+2)

9. I've seen similar before (I think it was 48/2(9+3) but I could be mistaken). Amazing how many people screw up something so simple (though I will admit the expression could be presented less ambiguously).
Isn't it parentheses, then multiplication of that then.
Forget it.
Parentheses first, then multiply/divide (working left to right) then add/subtract (again left to right). For an answer of one, the expression would need to be written:
6/(2(1+2))

Oddly it seems to be about a 50/50 split. I found the thread with the similar equation and someone graphed the results from various forums:

Until I read the website names at the bottom, I totally thought your post was about the election... the graph, the percentages, the colors...

Applying the operations in the correct order, the answer is 9.
