$9 \div 1 \times 2 \times 2 \div (11-2) = 4$
Follow BEDMAS. In this case, we have Brackets, Division and Multiplication. 1. Complete the Brackets $(11 - 2) = 9$ New equation $= 9 \div 1 \times 2 \times 2 \div 9$ 2. Divide the numbers a) $9 \div 1 = 9$ b) $2 \div 9 = \frac{2}{9}$ New equation $= 9 \times 2 \times \frac{2}{9}$ 3. Multiply the numbers a) $(9 \times 2) = 18$ New Equation $= 18 \times \frac{2}{9}$ b) $= 18 \times \frac{2}{9} = \frac{36}{9} = 4$ Therefore the answer is $= 4$
