We can use the mnemonic PEMDAS - Parenthesis (or bracket) - Exponent - Multiplication - Division - Addition - Subtraction with the note that multiplication / division have the same order and addition / subtraction have the same order.

The way that the equation was written; it can be interpreted in 2 ways:

A. 6

---------

2 (1+2) OR

B. 6

-------- X (1+2)

2

when we used the slash sign it is not clear if the numerals(1+2) inside the parenthesis is part of the divisor or if it is part of the dividend:

6 = dividend

------

2 = divisor

If (1+2) is part of the divisor then we can use equation A where in the answer will be

6 6 6

--------- = ---------- = ------ = 1

2 (1+2) 2(3) 6

If (1+2) is part of the dividend then we can use equation B wherein the answer will be

6

-------- * (1+2) = 3 * (1+2) = 3*3 = 9

2

The full mnemonic is PEMDAS (Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition and Subtraction).

First simplify parenthesis: 1 + 2 is 3, hence the number equation becomes 6/2(3)

Then, multiplication: 6 times 3 is 18, hence the equation becomes 18/2

Then division: 18 divided by 2 is 9, hence the result is 9.

In the above procedure, division of 6 by 2 can be done before multiplication, since multiplication and division have the same order, as do addition and subtraction.

I will use the formula of BODMAS to solve it.

B=Bracket

O=Or

D=Division

M=Multiplication

A=Addition

S=Subtraction

So, here it goes...

6/2(1+2)

=6/2(3)

=3(3)

=9

The answer is 9

Here we will use BODMAS rule to solve the problem. BODMAS stands for bracket ,off,division,multiply,add,substract. So here we will first simplify brackets so

6/2(1+2) = 6/2*3 = 3*3 = 9

We solve this question by BODMAS method we start solving first we solve bracket then division and then multiplication

6/2(1+2) =6/2(3)

=3*3

=9

so, answer is 9

Kindly ignore the misplaced number on the 8th paragraph; it should be written like this...thanks

6 6 6

--------- = ---------- = ------ = 1

2 (1+2) 2(3) 6

It uses PEMDAS ( Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction)

X = 6/2 (1+2)

= 6/2(3)

= 6/6

X = 1

Using bodmas we start with brackets [1+2]=3 then 6/2=3 so the equation becomes 3[3]=3*3=9
