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 • Urszula Radwanska • Garbiñe Muguruza • Simona Halep • Agnieszka Radwanska • Kristina Mladenovic • Taylor Townsend • Ajla Tomljanovic • Eugenie Bouchard • Carla Suárez Navarro TT Singles Current Ranking: #44 (CH Ranking: #11) Titles: Quebec City 2012, Cincinnati 2011 TT Doubles Current Ranking: #10 (CH Ranking: #8) Titles: Tokyo 2012 (w/New_balls_please), Stanford 2012, Carlsbad 2011, Osaka 2011 (w/rvugt) French Open 2013 Finalist (w/New_balls_please)

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）
