The way I was taught the answer is two. Distribute 2 into the parenthesis then you get 18+6=24. 48/24=2

Enough guys, I wrote the same damn equation on my scientific calculator (that I trust way more than myself) and the answer was 2.
If you all come up to me and write this thing in different ways, and write numbers that I don't know about and %s and etc, it's still 2 to me, and I'm not gonna change that.

My TI-89 returns an answer of 288. Using machines is pointless. In fact C# gave the most accurate answer (which was a compile error: "2 is a constant but is used as a method" ).

So can we say both 2 and 288 are the answer?

Mathematically no. That would be the equivilent of saying 2 is equal to 288 (2 = 288) which is simply not true.
