# Thread: 48÷2(9+3) = ????

1. ## 48÷2(9+3) = ????

a couple of parents are having a debate over this...

edit - wolframalpha says 288? i thought PEMDAS says parentheses first?

2. 2. WTF is they stupid?

288

48/2=24
9+3=12
combine...

24x12=288

Is they stupid....Engrish much?

6. let's just wrap parentheses everywhere

(48) / (2) * (9+3)

= (48) / (2) * (12)

= 48 / 2 * 12

= 24 * 12

= 288

7. its 2.

8. 2, too.

9. you are correct

10. Ironically this isn't really debatable

11. 2(9+3) = 24

48/24

= 2

ur parents mad op?

12. Pemdas says 2

13. are you motherfukcing retarded?

14. Even though you're red I'll respond.

A) Fail troll

B) All depends if the 12 is times 48 or times 2. cus it could be like (48/2)*12 or 48/(2*12)

bye.

not my parents...but if you compute it on wolfram alpha it'll say 288...

16. LOLWUT

It's 288 - google: order of operations

17. (48/2)*(9+3)=288

48/(2*(9+3)=2

All about OOP, it's not clearly identified which comes first.

18. BEDMAS

its 2

19. its 2.

Ive never heard of pemdas, but i used BEDMAS, brackets first so you have

48/2(12)

= 48/24

=2

20. its 288, cant believe people think its 2

edit: wow 1rd page on an epic thread, oh and join 288 crew

order of operations states it is 48/24 so you actually fail

23. 2..

24. if you though it was 2 i hope you are under the age of 10, if not i hope you choose not to reproduce

25. I got 288

Brackets first, then divide the 48 by 2, then multiply the 48 with 12 (the brackets) and you get 288

Well that's obvious if the (9+3) is not in the denominator.

Write it like this and you'll get 2: 48÷(2(9+3))

if you follow PEMDAS...the first thing you do is distribute the 2:

(2x9) + (2x3) = 24
48 % 24 = 2

28. 2..............
