random, but here's another math fact that ppl either forget or don't know:
you can always tell if a number is evenly divisible by 3 by adding up the all of the individual digits. if the total is divisible by 3, then the original number is divisible by 3. for example: 477 4 + 7 + 7 = 18. 18 is divisible by 3. even 1 + 8 = 9, that's divisible by 3. in fact, 477 ➗ 3 = 159. this trick will always work. say you tried it on a random stupid long number like 71,608,902,832,341. 7 + 1 + 6 + 0 + 8 + 9 + 0 + 2 + 8 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 = 54. 54 is divisible by 3, but even if you didn't see at first, 5 + 4 = 9. 71,608,902,832,341 ➗ 3 = 23,869,634,277,447

The problem should be written as 6 ______ = 2(1+2) or 6 __ * (1+2) = 2 they used a division sign to screw up the clarity

2. 1.... 6 ÷ 2(1 + 2) 6 ÷ (2+ 4) 6 ÷ 6 = 1 3. 2... None of these are even real math equations They are incorrectly formatted numbers disguised as equations.

6 ➗ 2(3) = 6 ➗ 2 X 3 = 3 X 3 = 9 you're supposed to divide first, only because it reads left to right. the rule goes: 1.) parentheses 2.) exponents 3.) multiplication & division are the same step, priority left to right. 4.) addition & subtraction are the same step, priority left to right.

the issue comes when you have 6 divided by the rest. adding within the parenthesis comes first, then it becomes simple multiplication. then you divide first because it's on the left side.

how does 3 equal 2? anything times 0 is zero, so youre left with 1

in the second one you wrote you would have to keep the fraction and end up with 18 over 6, getting reduced to 3 over 1 which is not the same as 9, so it ends up with a different answer, in all 3 scenarios the order of operations is different meaning they are different equations even though 1 and 2 both equal 9.

6/2(2+1) =6/2(3) =3(3) =9

2 (2 + 1) .... 4+ 2 = 6 2 (2 + 1) .... 2(3) = 6

breh just google pemdas order of operations, you'd see why you got it wrong. nga said it was written with "clarity"
