I get 9. Parenthesis first. 2+1=3 now it looks like 6/2(3). 6/2=3. 3x3 +9. That how I see it? How are you getting 1?

I was always taught that the order of operation was brackets and parentethis then My Dumb Azz Supervisor which actually means multiply, divide, add, subtract. SO first you add the 2+1 which is 3 and then you must divide the 6 by 2 which is 3. 3x3 is 9.

In XL:
6/2(2+1) returns a message to correct by adding *
It won't calculate without it and adding the * = 9

On TI-85:
6/2(2+1) = 1
6/2*(2+1) = 9


By hand I break it down as such:
6 / 2(2+1)
6 / 2(3)
6 / 6 = 1
