# How do you simplify 6 times (2 ÷ 1) ÷ 1 using order of operations?

12

#### Explanation:

Order of Operations goes like this:

Parentheses ()
Exponents ${1}^{2}$
Multiplication/Division $\cdot$ or $/$
Addition/Subtraction $+$ or $-$

Using this, we get...

$6 \cdot \frac{2}{1}$ because we removed the parentheses

Now, we do this left to right.

$6 \cdot 2 = 12$

$\frac{12}{1} = 12$

Yay!
