• x=(18/9)*6
x=2*6
x=12

• yeah 12. addition and subtraction are done first and in order from left to right and then multiplication and division are done in order from left to right. so this is 18/9 which is 2 then multiply 2 times 6.

• If you mean (18/ 9)6=12
18/(9x6)= 0.33333
18/9x6=12
it depends on how it's written

• 12 order of operations is pemdas parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction regardless of what order the equation is you always do the math in that order

• Nope, you guys are all wrong

If the equation si exactly how she wrote it, then the answer is 3

9 x 6 = 54

54/3 is 12

• sorry, 54/12 = 3...i wrote it backwards...

Answer by samurai_chica at 7:51 PM on Nov. 16, 2010

• If the equation looks like this (18/9) x 6 then the answer is 12

It does depend on how it is written...
