    The answer is 3.5.

    The way I see it is:


    6 - 1 + 2 / 2

    How I got my answer:

    6 minus 1 equals 5
    5 add 2 equals 7
    devide 7 by two(half) equals 3.5

    the answer should be 7. first multiplication will be performed.

    1x0=0

    then division will be performed.

    2/2=1

    then subtraction:

    6-0=6

    at last addition:

    6+1=7

    so the whole equation will be calculated as:

    6-(1x0)+(2/2)=6-0+(2/2)=(6-0)+1=6+1=7

    cant be five its its a + 1 from the (2/2)

    (6- [1x0]) + [2/2]
    6- [0]=6 then + [1]
    =7
