That's different. You skipped out of the division aspect of the problem, that's what makes this unique.

6 / 2 (1 + 2) is really
6 / 2 x (1 + 2)

If the problem you said was 6/2 (Y + 1) = ...

You would get 3Y + 3 = ...

I guess you're correct Then again, I'm still not sure. I just meant to say that you could play with what's inside the parentheses and then division and multiplication should be interchangeable but i'm not sure anymore.

You have to distribute the 3 into the parenthesis first before you divide, no?

If the problem was like this what would you do?

6/2 x (3)

By using Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally, which states Multiplication AND Division, you do whatever comes first from left to right. You divide first and then multiply.

Exactly, you distribute INSIDE the parenthesis not if it's outside like that. That's multiplication.
