The Calculator app approaches juxtaposition in a North American-centric manner

Calculator 45.0.2

The calculation 6÷2(1+2) results in an answer of 9, which is appropriate for the North American school system, but not for the professional scientific community or the rest of the world, as explained in the video below: most of the world treats 2(1+2) as a single unit, whereas North American teachers treat it as containing an explicit multiplication sign.

There is no option within the app to pick one treatment over the other.
