The rules for these types of equations are specific. Those rules are entered into calculators such as has already been shown:

I don't know if the OP is just playing around or not, but those calculators have been programmed with the only rules in math that exist. To say anything different is making up ones own rules, or proving ones education to be sub-par.
Buy a Casio scientific calculator, put in 6÷2(1+2) and the answer will be 1

No, they're just programmed with the only math rules that exist. And thus, the internet calculators and my Windows calculator are still showing 9. That's 3 different calculators all programmed with the same math rule.

Well, you continue to allow your brain to give you the false answers. It's been proven more than adequately that the answer is 9.
I've got better things to do than to argue over something that there is only one mathematics rule for.

I dont consider this an argument, but the answer is not 9, please just listen, i really do appreciate this thread. mathematical notations and program operator notations are calculated differently thats why all your internet calculators are comming up with 9, which is wrong.edit on 1-5-2011 by Itop1 because: (no reason given)

My friend, you are clearly trolling. Otherwise, you either had a terrible math teacher, or you just don't know your math.
Good day.

You're not providing any sort of evidence to support your claim. If you're going to claim every calculator is wrong, then you have to provide evidence.
Two internet calculators, plus Windows Scientific calculator, plus my college-level algebra shows that you are wrong. And I'll stick to my education and all programmed calculators any day of the week before I entertain your baseless claim. Cya!

You wouldn't need Google if you knew that 2(3) is not distribution but its actually multiplication.
Heres an example:

To get 9 you would have to put in parentheses. the fraction bar indicates that the numerator and denominator should treated as single values.In the equation 6÷2(1+2), 6 would be the numerator and 2(1+2) would be the denominator
6÷2(1+2) =6/2(3) =6/6 =1
(6/2)(1+2) = (3)(3) =9
If im wrong then please explain why im wrong?edit on 1-5-2011 by Itop1 because: (no reason given)

it's still 6÷2(3) or otherwise know as 6÷2x3 = 9.
The only way to get one is if you do multiplication first which is an invalid move.
