It's important to keep the order of operations in mind:  first parenthesis THEN Multiply Divide Add Subtract (I always remembered My Dear Aunt Sally).  
 
So here we go...there are no parenthesis.
 
Multiply:
6-1 x 0 + 2 / 2 = 6 - 0 + 2 / 2
 
Divide:
6 - 0 + 2 / 2 = 6 - 0 + 1
 
Add and Subtract:
6 - 0 + 1 = 7
 
Hope that helps!
Since there are no parentheses or brackets of any kind, multiplication and division takes precedence over addition and subtraction.
 
6-1*0+2/2; First do 1*0. It is zero, 1*0=0; Second, do 2/2. It is 1, that is 2/2=1. Now put two results into the expression.
6-1*0+2/2=6-0+1=7
 
So the answer is indeed 7.
