kmz you go to sc? my pops teaches there



btw lets settle this shit already. "Some mathematicians hold that multiplication by juxtaposition (omitting the x sign, ex. 2(4+3) ) is a symbol of grouping. No fixed convention exists."

so ultimately, it depends on who you ask really. 288 or 2; what's it matter anyway. it ain't that serious fam.

so...

12/3x2x2 = 1 and not 16 to you?


it is for me, yeah. 12 divided by 12, not 4x2x2

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

the problem is written like this... 48
.......................................;;;;....;;;....2(9+3)

when you use "/" it is universally inferred that everything after it is in the denominator, so even though there are no parentheses around everything in the denominator you treat the problem as such.

therefore the answer is 2

so you're saying that this 48

2 or 288?

the ti-86 is newer than the 85 so it's 288

it's 288. If a problem only has multiplication and division left then you just do it from left to right, not multiplication always first.
24(12).

You don't divide 48 by 2 first and then multiply by 12. It's 48 divided by 2(9+3). My point is that to get a calculator to treat it as such, you need to use parentheses to say 48/(2(9+3)). In reality, if you wrote it out instead of using a calculator, I'm fairly certain that you would solve the denominator first by multiplying 2x12, then divide that into 48. I don't think you'd write it out and then divide 48 by 2 and multiply the answer by 12.


man just because you have a backslash DOES NOT MEAN IT"S A FUCKING FRACTION
it's just a division sign.
it's not like shit is grouped on either side like in a fraction. it's left to right. FUCK

this has been answered already but it varies on who you asked
the original question was a question brought up by a 6th grade student's mom on facebook in which she found out herself its "2"

being in algebra you would see its 2 if you use implied multiplication correctly or distributing
48/2(9+3)
48/2(12)simplify
48/24 implied multiplication (parenthesis)
2

using pemdas without any other rule (younger kids) you would see
48/2(9+3)
48/2(12) or 48/2x12
24x12
288

the thing is parenthesis is omitted in this way which should not be omitted
this same thing is the reason why you need to be completely accurate in calculators with all ( ) since they don't use implied multiplication in all their calculators

you're wrong, get over it. there's more important things in life than just finding out that 48/2(9+3)=2. for example, you could work on your reading comprehension, since you clearly didn't understand my post.

Don't judge me. I'm procrastinating studying for my test (productively imo)

People who think 2 is the answer either think:

1). Because the 2 is next to the (9+3) it must be distributed. This is wrong because distributive property does not take precedence OVER order of operations. It is a valid method of reorganizing a problem AFTER the terms have been simplified using order of operations. You're supposed to simplify what you can using order of operations before you apply distributive property. In this case after you simplify, there is nothing to distribute.

or

2). Because the 2 is next to the (9+3) without a multiplication symbol it belongs to the parentheses and therefore by order of operations, you must multiply the 12 by the 2 in order for the P of Pemdas to be satisfied. This is wrong because if the 2 really is a part of the parentheses then 2(4-2)^2 would equal 16 because you'd have to multiply the 2 into the (4-2) before you do the exponent to follow order of operations.

or

3). Because the 2 is next to the (9+3) without a multiplication symbol it belongs in the denominator because of the juxtaposition rule. This is also wrong because even 1/2x = x/2 if you don't explicitly write it as 1/(2x). Yes, people will understand that you meant 1/(2x) when you write 1/2x for simplicity and they know you otherwise would have wrote it x/2. But on a math test, if you write 1/2x on a horizontal line, it means x/2.

or

4). Because the 2 is next to the (9+3) without a multiplication symbol, it means that not only is this multiplication, it's special because they have to be stuck to each other. This one is just dumb because it has no basis in a math rule and it even breaks the rules from the order of operations.

or

5). Everything after a division symbol is in the denominator. no.

no need for explanation, if you didn't fail at the maths then you'd understand why

If you read anything I posted, you'd know that I also think the answer is 288.

ask any math major in the world and they'll tell you you're wrong.

you're an idiot.
