The answer is 1

 

How??

Simple.. Do you remember the BODMAS RULE that we learnt back in school and an another rule according to which we got to turn the fraction into an inline expression.

The common mistake that most of us do is that we forget to consider 1/3 as our first step in the calculation.

 

First step is 3  ÷  (1/3) i.e. 3*3 which is 9

 

Second step is 9 – 9  +  1

 

Third step i.e. 0  +  1 which is 1.

 

Hence the final answer to the above puzzle is one.

 

So how many of you got this correct??
