The real trip up is that people mistakenly believe the first 2 to be "part of the brackets" - it's not - plain and simple. What constitutes "the brackets" is what is INSIDE the brackets - NOTHING outside is "part of the brackets" - end of story.

When two values are shown next to each other (i.e. ab or x(y + z)), a multiplication action is performed. This is sometimes re-written with a period between the values to make it less confusing - in which case this formula could be written: 6%2.(1+2)=?

The formula therefore reads 6 % 2 x (1 + 2) - following BEDMAS (Brackets, Exponent, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction) you first complete the brackets, making the formula:
