6÷2(1+2) = ?

Welcome to one of the easiest algebraic equations in the world!... or is it? MUAHAHAHAHA!

Can you solve this pesky little problem while also giving damning evidence that the other 2 can not possibly work?

YOU MUST CHOOSE ONE AND ONLY ONE!

Calculations:

6÷2(1+2) =
6÷2(3) =
3*3 =
9

6÷2(1+2) =
6÷2(3) =
6÷6 =
1

6÷2(1+2) =
6÷2+4 =
3+4 =
7

ADDED: Those calculations are simply thought processes for each possible answer. I am aware that there may or may not be something missing that could help clarify, but I am leaving it up to you to figure it out.
