Hi, Gene:

The SHARP PC1211, which is the very first pocket computer (released back in 1980, i.e.: 40 years ago as of 2020), declared these evaluation priorities: which clearly stablishes that implied multiplication (i.e., the "2(1+2)" part) is a highpriority operation, four levels higher than division, so when evaluating the expression it gives 1 as the result, which is fine by me. 6÷2(1+2) = 6÷2(3) = 6÷6 = 1 Best regards.
