PEMDAS is the Order of operations taught in my grade school.
Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

PEMDAS or BODMAS?

6 รท 2(1 + 2)
= 6 รท 2(3)
= 6 รท 6
= 1

Exact answer but only confusion is the application of PEMDAS vs BODMAS

There are many others: BIDMAS, PEDMAS, etc. This article gives a detailed comparison between the two, and that, all the methods are not rules, it's just like a convention: slate.com/technology/2013/03/faceb...

You can argue for both 9 or 1 equally but I think 1 looks more natural here
6 รท 2(1 + 2) = 1
Although 9 looks more natural (or not ๐Ÿ˜•) when expressed like this:
6 รท 2 x (1 + 2) = 9
And if (1+2) was replaced with a variable y having value 3, 1 looks more natural again
6 รท 2y = 1

6/2(1+2)
=6/2*3
=3*3
=9
Done Using BODMAS(Bracket Of Divsion Multiplication Addition Subtraction) Rule.
