You also get a similar order called Brackets Of Division Multiplication Addition Subtraction.
bcoz parenthesis goes first before division so u just make a simple operation, 2*9 + 2*3 that equals 24,than 48/24 = 2

Yes... like I said, your answer varies based on whatever system you were taught in high school. This topic is less of an analysis on mathematics and more of a trap topic for people to argue a paradoxical situation.
Because in both orders parenthisis is before multiplication so it also depends on what your teacher taught you in terms of that as well.

"Parenthesis" is only concerned with operations inside the parenthesis as far as priority goes. Once there is only one number left inside the parenthesis, it just becomes something to be multiplied.
The answer to this problem boils down to whether you want to divide first, or multiply first. It is a paradox in that both answers are correct and incorrect at the same time. Neo <3 mindgames.
i was taught that
if we have for eg. only number 2 before parenthesis that means we must multiply whole parenthesis by this number somethin' like this, 2(9+3) it's the same as 2*9 + 2*3 that equals 24.
You know what i mean? ;d
it was really, really hard to for meh to explain this
