Can you solve the math problem that looks super easy?
What is 6÷2(1+2) = ?
The order of operations
The expression can be simplified by the order of operations, often remembered by the acronyms PEMDAS/BODMAS.
First evaluate Parentheses/Brackets, then evaluate Exponents/Orders, then evaluate Multiplication-Division, and finally evaluate Addition-Subtraction.
Everyone is in agreement about the first step: simplify the addition inside of the parentheses.
This is where the debate starts.
