Answer:

The answer is #1.5#.

Explanation:

Since all the operations in this expression are the same, start with the leftmost part and move to the right after every step.

It ends up looking like this:

#color(white)=12div4div2#

#=color(red)(12div4)div2#

#=color(red)3div2#

#=color(blue)(3div2)#

#=color(blue)1.5#
