It is a math problem that appeared on facebook some time ago, some people argue to death and defriend each other arguing which is the correct answer for it, 9 or 1. Scandalous.

Multiplication AND Division, you do whatever one comes first in the equation. So in this case, you divide first and then multiply. (2+1) = (3) and then 6 ÷ 2 = 3, and 3(3) = 9 __________________ Venus Williams • Arantxa Parra Santonja • Lyudmyla Kichenok • Garbiñe Muguruza • Simona Halep • Ons Jabeur • Taylor Townsend • Caroline Wozniacki • Carla Suárez Navarro TT Singles Current Ranking: #1 (CH Ranking: #1) Titles(6): Linz 2014, Cincinnati 2014, Wimbledon 2014, Marrakech 2014, Quebec City 2012, Cincinnati 2011 TT Doubles Current Ranking: #28 (CH Ranking: #8) Titles(7): Sofia TOC 2014, Cincinnati 2014, Bucharest 2014, Tokyo 2012 (w/New_balls_please), Stanford 2012, Carlsbad 2011, Osaka 2011 (w/rvugt) TT GOAT Armada, Inger67 & SAISAI-GOAT, Shenzhen AO WC Playoff 2014

No, because you do whatever is in the parenthesis first. So you Add 2 and 1 to get 3.

Then it's 6÷2（3）
