To Quote Myself:

QuoteEveryone:

6/2(2 + 1)

is not equal to:

6
2(2+1)

The way that the question is written (6/2(2 + 1)), it = 9. This is because when you have Division and Multiplication (in the same order) you go from left to right.

However, if the question were written in the way below, it would = 1 because their are inferred brackets around the top and bottom.

I was going to try to add "lotion" in there somehow, but it became too contrived. I'm back; this thread still isn't locked.
