Next time you have a math assignment, you may not want to take to the internet to get it figured out because if it’s one thing we know, it’s that people cannot be trusted to do math.
Once again, Nobody Can Figure Out The Answer to This Math Problem and it has the whole internet divided.
The math problem is:
6/2 (1 + 2) = ?
Some are quick to jump in saying you need to go in the order of PEMDAS (Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally) like many of us were taught in grade school.

Either way, most people are coming up with the answers 0, 1, 3, or 6 which are presumably wrong.
Because the answer is actually 9.
Here is an overly complicated breakdown of the equation:
But to dumb it down for those (like me) that have math as their weakest subject, here is a YouTube video going over the equation:
So yeah, technically the answer is 9 but can also be 1? I am more confused now than when I started.
So, which is it? What is your answer?!
