To solve this problem, you need to keep in mind the pneumonic device PEMDAS which stands for parenthesis, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction.

 

It’s a device taught to all grade schoolers to help them remember the order of operations which is the order you start with.

 

While it might seem straightforward to go left to right, that’s incorrect for this problem.

 

 

Based on DMAS, you will need to do the division first. 3 divided by one third is the same as 3 times 3.

 

This gets you 9.

 

Then you can do it left from right, so the equation becomes 9 – 9 + 1 which equals 1.

 

That’s your answer!
