    I make it 19 Where there are no brackets in the equation, you work strictly from left to right. 9 - 3 = 6. There are obviously 3 thirds in 1, so there will be 6 x 3 thirds in 6 = 18 + 1 = 19.

    If I am right, please give $50 to help wildlife in Australia.

    9   -  ( 3 ÷ 1/3 )  + 1

    9 - 9  + 1

    1

    9 - 3 = 6

    6 / 1/3 = 18

    18 + 1 = 19.

    9-3/(1/3)+1

    =

    9-3*3+1

    =

    9-9+1

    =

    1

      In using computer, it goes without saying that the symbol " / " means division. 3/(1/3) simply means
      " 3 is divided by 1/3=3*3=9 ".

    doing the inside set ... and left to right as per the rules ... 3 div by 1 = 3 ... div by 3 = 1; so 9 - 1 + 1 = 9.  1 BAR (aka over) 3 is different than one-third which would be shown as (1/3) with parentheses telling you to do that arithmetic first. [Do not use PAPEDMAS ... as in parentheses, ASSUMED PARENTHESES, exponents, Division:Multiplication as you come to them from left to right, Adding:subtracting (left to right).

      So the people in the video made the same mistake !!  P S Do you still believe the sun goes around the earth? At one time the pope said God said so - so it must be right.  PUT =3/1/3 into excel !!  and get 1 ... hence 9-1+1=9

    It is the same as 9 - 9 +1 = 1

    Remember BIDMAS

      The basic rule in arithmetic is "first perform x or /; then + or -". So, SumDude, it is not an assumption.

    Pretty sure it's 3.  Also I don't trust you enough to waste time setting up a payment method and it's not worth even 50 cents to be honest, it's pretty simple considering I got it.

      Considering youre wrong, obviously not that easy for you
