It depends on how you interpret the 2(9+3).
Most people assume that means you must do that whole part before dividing 48 by it. It's made even more ambiguous by the special character division sign instead of a slash.
The answer is either 2 or 288.
Just getting this out of the way. The thread will be deleted shortly anyway.

Does anybody know? I keep getting different answers.
I'm bringing it back for a second time since there is a 500-post-count limit on topics.

There's no other answer than 288. Simple order of operations. Multiplication has the same priority level as division, and must be evaluated in the reading order. There are some exceptions, but in this case, it's unambiguous.
