Are you guys phucking retarded or what?

Who cares if it is BEDMAS or PEMDAS. Parenthesis and brackets are the same thing. Multiplication and division are EQUAL, so the order you do them is from left to right if it is ambiguous. Same for addition and subtraction.

And parenthesis only applies to things INSIDE the parenthesis, NOT outside.

So you would do 48/2 first, then multiply by what is inside the parenthesis, (9+3).

48/2(9+3) is amibigious, however you would probably do the division first.

The answer is 288 if you do division first, and 2 if you multiply first, division and multiplciation are treated equally somewhat, however division is usually done first...

You would ideally want more paranthesis to make it clear

It's 288, calihoe saying it's 2 finalizes this argument

Scary thing is I sucked in math once I got to algebra.

I get 288.......very simple.

Which usually means it's 2
