288.. you do the parentheses first... are we in elementary school?

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.

48/2(12)
48/24
2 :d

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.

Well, in Canada we get taught BEDMAS- Brackets, exponent, division, multiplication, addition, subtraction.

So which one is right?

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. #18
I can't believe people disagree with 288.

19. #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.
