48/2(9+3)

=24(12)

=288

48/2(9+3)

=24/12= 2

Or 24 × 1/12= 2!

While, 2!=2*1=2, if you made this same mistake if were like 4 ie. 4!=4*3*2*1=/=4. you would run into some problems...

Haha, I don't think he meant 2 factorial, I think he was just exclaiming that it was 2.

Yeah I was actually tellin' half of the CHU that it is 2. Still 2!=2

It's been a long time coming.

48

--*(9+3)

2

But the original equation is not written like that if it was it would be

(48/2)(9+3)

I was wondering where you got this question from. Just got this on my feed today and smiled when i saw it.

I still say the answer's 288 tho :X

the only way it would be 288 is if it was written like this

48

--*(9+3)

2

But the original equation is not written like that if it was it would be

(48/2)(9+3)

Guys, the order of operation is this.

1. Parentheses.

2. Exponents or Radicals.

3. **Working from left to right**, multiplication and division.

4. **Working from left to right**, addition and subtraction.

Just watch out and keep in mind , from left to right for multiplication, division, addition and subtraction.

@Moorey: That's correct. This is the same equation with one extra parentheses that changed the final results.

48/2(9+3) = 288

48 / (2(9+3)) = 2

@DABhand

Those two, (48/2)*(9+3) and 48/2*(9+3) are the same, but they are totally different from this one 48 /(2*(9+3)).

Just type them in a excel sheet or a programming language to check the results.

in old solution and theory,they explain that multiplication should be 1st solved then division,but a new theory and solution came up with divison 1st before multiplication,and they're both ok to co-exist?that's not right...

And like I have said..

48/2(9x+3x) or 48/2x(9+3) would lead to 48/24x, thusly by general rule of thumb the same has to be true for 48/2(9+3)

Because the (9+3) is tied to the 2 not 48/2 which some people think.
