Order of precedence.

Parentheses then mult/division then add/subtraction, left to right.

62(1+2) =

6/2*3 =

3*3 =

9

After solving the parentheses you go left to right in a simple div/mult issue, correct answer should be 9.



edit: Prolly makes it easier if you rewrite the problem as: 62*(1+2) =
