And I learned to do this in sixth grade.

My first answer was 1 ... but wouldn't it be 9 since you do division and multiplication from L to R? Since you are using PEMDAS, it isn't that you do all multiplication first, and then division, (and then addition, then subtraction)  .. you just do them from L to R at that point. Right?

Yep. I hate PEMDAS.

Quoting JessT5280:

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.  

Quoting SaGe_Ed:

order of operations.  Do whats inside the parentheses first.

I'm not a math teacher, but even I know that that math teacher is wrong. She frightens me.
