Can any one help me with this problem am having trouble with coming up with the answer. 7(1)/3(2)9/(3)

It depends on how the terms are groups shown by parentheses and/or brackets. It makes things clearer, if you put spaces between the terms, as I did below.
7  (1)/3(2)  9/(3) = 7+1/6 + 3 = 10 1/6
[7(1)]/3(2)  9/(3) = 8/6 + 3 = 4 2/3
