No, by using PEMDAS of BODMAS the answer will be 9.

No it is 1 by the distributive law. A(B+C)<=>(AB+AC). Therefore 2(1+2)=(2+4). So the problem can be rewritten as 6/(2+4) which is 1. If you want your 9 write the problem like 6÷2×(1+2) .... don't use the implied multiplication.... or better yet don't use ÷.rewrite the problem as:
6
------ = ?
2(1+2)

Or
6
- × (1+2) =?
