Expression:

6 + 9 / 3 - 2

When this expression is simplified w/o any parentheses, it equals 7.

I just need to know where to put the parentheses so that it will equal 1.

And we have to use the ORDER OF OPERATION.

Are you sure you wanted the answer, 1?

If the first sign were negative, then parentheses below would result in 1.

6 - (9/3) - 2 = 1

If the original formula had this typo, this would be your answer. Otherwise, I don't see how it can be changed to equal 1.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
