  1. 2 or 288.

    mind=blown
     
  2. What isn't it 2?

    Lol edit :p
     
  3. It's 288 man.

    48÷2(9+3)
    48÷2(12)
    24(12)
    288
     
  4. pemdas, n00b.
     
  5. 288.. you do the parentheses first... are we in elementary school?
     
  6. It's 288.. PEMDAS - Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication or Division, Addition or subtraction. Those are the order of operations..

    48/2(9+3) = 48/2(12)
    48/2 = 24
    24(12) = 288.
     
  7. 48/2(12)
    48/24
    2 :d

    Order of operations bro. Parenthesis then multiply 2 . So its 48/24 what ever that is.


    Oh wait left to right order of operations so yeeaa 24(12)
     
  9. simple math. no?
     
  10. Hey man, just watch people come out of the woodwork with different opinions. I guarantee you each answer will have a strong following. At least this was what I noticed elsewhere.
     
  11. Ah shit... so I'm off on my answer of 3.5...

  13. Its 7 u noobs.
     
  14. Lol yes, my bad :p BEDMAS!!
     
  15. Well, in Canada we get taught BEDMAS- Brackets, exponent, division, multiplication, addition, subtraction.

    So which one is right? :D
     
  16. The answer is 2.
     
  17. You know the correct procedure for solving this problem yet still manage to get it wrong. My mind is blown. The answer is 2, dude.
     
  18. I can't believe people disagree with 288.
     
  19. LOL, I know. Everyone thinks the other side is wrong, perhaps a poll is needed.

    The way he wrote it makes it look like (9+3) is in the denominator.
