No, there isn't
both use the order of operations
people don't understand that the order of operations is semi-subjective, primarily concerning implied multiplication (this problem) and also a little bit of the exponent part.
Both follow the first operation, (1+2)=3,so now we have 6/2(3)
We skip the exponent part, because obviously there are none.
Now we get to the problem: the multiplication and division step. all multiplication and division steps with more then one function tend to pose a problem, since ideally they would be done at the same time. The whole "left to right" thing is just a rule of pinkie.
This is why, as i stated, we no longer use division signs.
SO, from here there are 2 ways to do it. The first would be using the left to right method. We do 6/2 first, and get 3. so then it is 3(3) which is obviously nine.
However, an increasingly prevailing way of solving this is by implied multiplication, stating that 2(3) is a single term and should be solved solved accordingly. Then it is essentially 6/(2(3)) since it is a single term, and 6 has to be divided by it all together. So it's 6/6=1
Both started with parentheses and follow the order of operations through the multiplication/division step. They're both right, or wrong, depending on how you look at it. But the problem is written incorrectly, so it's kinda a moot point.

yes, i've been through 5 semesters worth of math classes, and i'm going to college to be a fucking engineer, yet i'm wrong. i would like you to tell me what exactly is wrong with what i said.
