    6-1\cdot0+\frac{2}{2}=6-0+1=7

    Hello, cheliciouspie!

    \text{Evaluate: }\:6-1\cdot0+2 \div 2

    Don't you know the "Order of Operations"?

    Do all the multiplication and division before any addition and subtraction.

    So we have: . 6 - (1\cdot0) + (2\div 2)

    . . . . . . . . =\;6 - 0 + 1

    . . . . . . . . =\;7

    @markfl2 and @Soroban

    Thanks for your replies...

    i know the order of operation... (MDAS).. My answer as well is 7... but i'm just confuse cause my friends told me that it's 5.

    they say 6-0+1 = 5....that is 6-(0+1)=6-1=5...

    They told me that addition first before subtraction...

    Addition and subtraction are done at the same level from left to right. You are right and your friends are not.
