# Algebra 1

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.

2. (6+9)/(3-2)= 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.
