  • Honestly that's what I thought...but I have had a couple of people that have a much much higher level of education tell me the answer is (1).

  • well technically yes. You multiply first then divide... so
    2+1=3
    3x3=6
    6/6=1

  • if you use PEMDAS then the answer is still 1...
    Parentheses, Multiplication, Division
    (2+1)=3
    3x2=6
    6/6=1
