You divide first, then that number gets multiplied by 1, then you add two. How the hell did most of you get 9?

True, but multiplication and division are done from L to R (not one before the other) so you do the division problem first, and then multiply. 
I think. Lol. It's been a while.

order of operations.  Do whats inside the parentheses first.
