This Math Problem Has The Internet Confused. Can You Figure It Out?

Math, even in its simplest form, can confuse the hell out of anyone, which is why this math problem is driving people crazy.

The question, posed by popular YouTube account MindYourDecisions, was originally posted on Aug. 31, 2016 but is making the rounds across the internet again. Why? People keep arriving to two different answers: 1 and 9.

The problem often generates debate and has millions of comments on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social media sites.

Can you solve it?

Some say the equation is in reality 6 / 2 x (3) = 6/6 =1

Others say the equation is in reality 6/2 = 3 x (1+2) or 3 x (3) = 9

I myself say the correct answer is 9. It is a fairly 50/50 consensus with the answers as 9 and the other 50% saying the answer is 1.
