Yes

It is nine because 6 divided by 2 will give you 3, and then 2 plus 1 is 3 plus it in total it will give you 9

the answer is 1 because using BODMAS, you work the first
6/2(1+2)
=6/2(3)
=6/6
=1

Wahab Badiru replied 3 years ago

the answer is 9 according to my calculations

Paula Nwannadi replied 3 years ago

I think its actually 9
Because: 6÷2=3
3(2+1)
3(3)
3 × 3 = 9

Paula Nwannadi replied 3 years ago

And if using BODMAS STILL GET 9:
FIRST SOLVE THE BRACKET: (2 + 1)
( 3 )
And then divide: 6 ÷ 2 = 3
3(3) each means 3×3
= 9

6 ÷ 2 {2+1}
6 ÷ {2×2} + {2 × 1}
6 ÷ 4 + 2
6 ÷ 6
