  1. The presentation of that problem has nothing to do with whether the answer is right or wrong. The rules of mathematics go

    multiplication

    division

    addition

    subtraction

    with the reciprocals being equal.

    Therefore, with a problem of such simple structure, the answer is 6 because:

    2+ 2x2=

    2+ 4 =

    6

    In the case the author of this problem desired the addition to be done BEFORE the multiplication, parentheses (or optionally brackets) should be added as follows:

    (2+2)x2=

    (4) x2=

    8

    Voila.
