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

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

i got 2 but im a history major so...

April 09, 2011 @ 09:05:34

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

got 2 at first but then calculator said 288

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 = 048 / 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

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

you ♥♥♥♥♥s failed math in elementary? you multiply/divide depending on whatever comes first

i got 2

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

you probably failed high school math &)

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

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 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

this is why you aren't supposed to use the "

April 09, 2011 @ 13:05:38

lol

April 09, 2011 @ 13:21:54

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

^that would be true if it was 48

i swear half u fucktards are trolling with 288...u kids cant be this dumb
