Where do I add parentheses to make this expression equal a 1 when it is simplified?
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.

(6+9)/(32)= 15
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.
