48 What do you mean it doesn't make sense? It's simply stating that their are two possible equations being asked. 

your mistake is thinking that there isn't an implied sign. which IF YOU DO NORMAL MATH 2(6) in math = 12 2 / 2 (6) = means 1 * 6 = 6. 

honestly i see what your saying your agreeing to disagree. but the answer seems to be clear as day to both sides, but i don't see how 48÷2(9+3) = ? to anyone looks like 48÷(2(9+3)) = ? see what i'm saying FOR the answer of 2 you would need two (()) 

Funny thing, I've never even seen that Divide symbol after middle school. It's like using an "x" for multiplication. LOL it would be funny to use it in a calc III test though XD


Your mistake was adding a * after the 2. it's not in the original problem and changes everything. People like you make America look stupid. It's not only that you are stupid, but you are dumb enough to not even doubt yourself for a second. Such people are the worst  the ones that are blinded by their own confidence.

I have a fun idea, put your lvl of completed math course next to your answer. :)


Calc II .... 288


Yes and that's precisely why I raised the question because the second () isn't needed if it is written in full fraction form because it become apparent that the (9+3) belongs with the denominator. 

ok lets split the qestion
we all can agree 48 / 2 = 24 we can all agree 9 + 3 = 12 we can all agree 2(12) is always going to be 24. so knowing that 2(12) = 24 because the * is implied. 48 / 2 = 24(12) = 288. DONE i beat the game. inferno math is inferno 

On another subject I've never heard of a Calc. IV what school did you go too?


Not doubting, just curious how there program works. I know they all have there own routine.


Here is an explanation as to how you went wrong people.
48/2(9+3) (one * in this) 48/2(12) (* is used) 48/24 ( every * is gone) = 2 48/2 * 1(9+3) (two * are in this problem) 48/2 * 1(12) ( two * are still there...) 48/2 * 12 (still there...) 24 * 12 (holy !@#$ still there!) = 288 There you go, you're multiplying TWO times instead of ONE!!!! The original problem only has one multiplication. Adding a sign will always give you a different result. I just solved your mystery so feel grateful.

oh god i don't think this has anything to do with fractions actually brotha. i hate fractions..... 

Here is an explanation as to how you went wrong people. err you just did right to left math right to left math would look like 48 / 2 12 once () was solved you go left to right making the problem look like 48 / 2 * 12 not 12 * 2 / 48 which would be 2 but you get my point. i hope. 

Sudden Loss you forgot to include your lvl of completed math course.


High School, is not an answer


Math is left to right once you've done everything in brackets first.
Also I edited my post to make it clearer. 

I can say this, type the problem into a TI84 ti calculator and it will not give the answer 2.


Side Note... Epic troll who started this! I'm actually impressed.
