Okay I saw this on Facebook not long ago and I'm just confused with a really simple question. The question is basically 6/2(1+2) Now using my head I get 9, using wolfram alpha I get 9 and also Google gives me 9. But then I place this into all 3 of my calculators I get the answer of 1. I'm assuming this is because it does the 2(1+2) part first and then divides 6/6 to get 1. And I also placed brackets around it to get (6/2)(1+2) which gets me the answer of 9 (thus assuming that it does do it that way). But shouldn't the order of operations go from left to right? in terms of the multiplication and division?? Am I looking at this wrong?
