    Have a look at it, take a good hard look at it.

    A simple math equation has taken over the internet and absolutely no one can agree what the correct answer is to the above equation.

    The equation is 6/2(1+2)= ?

    That seems like it should be simple enough, but it’s not.

    Many people seem to think the answer is 1 or 9. And one keen mathematician claims there actually isn’t an answer at all.

    “The problem is inherently ambiguous and there’s no convention that produces a definitive answer,” writes a Twitter user.

    “It needs to be rephrased as (6÷2)(1+2) OR 6÷(2(1+2)) or there’s no right answer.”

    What do you think?
