Which is three and then the order of operation goes division then multiplication So you have

6/2(1+2) Which then if you follow the order of operations is

6/2*(3) so then

6/2=3

So you get 3*3 which is 9

Quoting SaGe_Ed:

order of operations.  Do whats inside the parentheses first.

oops, I was wrong.  It is 9.  Solve the parentheses first, so now it's 6/2*3.  Then solve.  Since multiplication and division take place in the same tier of the order of operations you can simply move from left to right in the equation.  So 6/2 is 3, and then 3*3 is 9.  :)
