No the answer is 36. Try plugging it into the problem. 36 divided by 2 is 18, which is 6 times 3. Then if you add (the opposite of subtracting) 3 groups of 3 (nine) from 3 multiplied by nine (27) you get 36
*December 6, 2011*

**3rd grade math**

Well first 3 x 6= 18 so multiplied by two to get your answer 18x2=36 to check use the second part of the problem: 3x9=27 36-27=9 subtract three groups of three (9) 9-9=0 so we have the correct answer
