2 you herbs. add the parenthesis(9+3=12). multiplication before division(2*12=24). then divide(48/24=2)

its 288

pemdas is just a tool to help you remember but multiplication and division are interchangeable and same with addition and subtraction because you go from left to right

how are you fruits getting 288? the 2 outside the parentheses is the second step. whatever touches the parentheses gets taken care of after whatever is inside of the parentheses.


no you're completely wrong

you only do the math inside the parentheses first and then you do the rest

number outside a parenthesis is equal to a multiplication and the order goes left to right

order of operations and pemdas are the same thing...

best meme in a long time
how are people passing school with 288 |0

48 / 2 (9 + 3) - x = 0
48 / 2 (12) - x = 0
48 / 24 - x = 0
2 - x = 0
2 = x
x = 2

proof
x = 2
48 / 2 (9 + 3) - 2 = 0
48 / 2 (12) - 2 = 0
48 / 24 - 2 = 0
2 - 2 = 0
0 = 0 (win)

x = 288
48 / 2 (9 + 3) - 288 = 0
48 / 2 (12) - 288 = 0
48 / 24 - 288 = 0
2 - 288 = 0
286 = 0 (fail)


you multiplied 2(12) first which is not right, its from left to right
so 48/2 then multiply by 12
abodo smh

oh and people saying use the distributive property for 2(9+3), thats basically multiplication which does not come first in pemdas, perantheses are always first, hence (9+3) goes first, while multiplication and division are from left to right, which ever one is first

"Divide and Multiply rank equally (and go left to right).

Add and Subtract rank equally (and go left to right)

let me explain to you step by step, day by day

48 / 2 (9 + 3)
48 / 2 (12) simplify
48 / 24 parenthesis
2 division

this kids website should help

im surprised at the trolls on this site skewing the polls
other sites have it the other way and actually tried it

exactly parenthesis goes first right?
so you got rid of the steps in the parenthesis (9+3)=(12)
multiplication can be symbolized by 2x2 or 2(2)
so since we're at the MD part of PEMDAS, iit goes from left to right
so 48/2=24
24(12)=288

I didn't take AP calculus for no reason smh

ya well looks like you failed that shit bro bro

edit: think of 2(9+3) which is 2(12), as a term like 2x

"I get 288. In the acronym PEMDAS, the M and D operations are at the same priority and the A and S are at the same priority. Arithmetic operations at the same priority are evaluated left to right. So for example, 2 + 5 - 3 is the same as (2 + 5) - 3 = 7 - 3 = 4, while 2 - 5 + 3 is the same as (2 - 5) + 3 = -3 + 3 = 0.

I can't say that I remember my algebra teacher in ninth grade going into quite such detail (in fact, all I remember her telling us was the acronym MDAS, with a mnemonic device of My Dear Aunt Sally), but programming languages such as C, C++, C#, Fortran, Pascal, and others are very specific about operator precedence.

For this reason, 48

Why are people ignoring that you go from left to right as well as PEMDAS ? its been said like 5 times already

multiplication and division have the same priority SO you have to go from LEFT TO RIGHT which = 288
