I googled this and saw this on a physics forum, those nerds got almost a 50%/50% split between the two. Sooo I'm gonna call this a trick question and move on with my life.

lol i straight up asked multiple math teachers and they said 288
and it would only be 2 if there were parentheses, ie. 48/(2(9+3))

is it sad that i would have answered 2 the same way as this vid way back when i was a junior doing precalc smh

then you get original ops answer of 2

it's just to clarify the numerator and denominator... people who haven't done complex algebra don't really look at 48/2(12) as...

48
----
2(12)

which is the same as 48/[2(12)]

DENOMINATOR

fo real, tho, the answer is 2. cause it would be under the division line, like 48/2x(9+3), and when you wanna put it in the same row, then you gotta put the under_line part in brackets, so its 48/[2x(9+3)], so you gotta do 9+3, x2, 48/, so its 2.

ja sam tu zbog para.

if no other assumptions are made, then the answer is 288 (simple PEMDAS). usually, most people will write that expression intending 2(9+3) to completely be in the denominator, but we do not know here. entering the expression on google yields 288.

Everyone forgets the implied bracket of 48/2. So, the problem is actually (48/2)x(9+3). So do the brackets first. 288. Troll defeated.

its 24*12, because its 48 divided by 2, not 48 divided by (2(9+3), theres no other way to do it.

various quotes

If one utilizes the principles of implied multiplication, then “2(9+3)” gets higher precedence than the explicit “48/2,” and would be solved like this:
48

HAHAHA. Oh wow.

Alright you dick handlers here's how to math correctly, now with step-by-step solution for all the dumbfucks who don't know Order of Operations.

48/2(9+3)
48/2(12) <- Brackets, 2(12) is NOT in the brackets so you can't argue to do that first

NOW HERE'S THE TRICKY STEP THAT IDIOTS WILL DO INCORRECTLY. Since it's BEDMAS, division and multiplication (as well as addition and subtraction respectively) you go left-to-right.
YES. LEFT-TO-RIGHT. Not right-to-left. Not up-to-down. LEFT TO RIGHT, just like reading words (if you're not a damn jap).

24(12) <- Division since it's the first on the left hand side
288 <- Multiplication.

Anyone who says the answer is 2 is either of the following:

A) A cum guzzling giga faggot
B) A dumbass who failed math
C) All of the above

it's simple mathematics, my dear watson


Bolded for emphasis. yes smokeyface

it's 48/2(9+3)

9+3=12
2x12=24
48/24=2

When you have parenthesis like this and you want to calculate them you are going:
2(9+3) = (9*2+3*2) = 24
The "2" belongs to the parenthesis and whats inside.
The answer is 2.

No asshole, the 2 is OUTSIDE the parenthesis. Should we go over a lesson of that?
Okay here.

Inside the parenthesis: (2(9+3))
OUTSIDE the parenthesis 2(9+3)

2(9+3)

Therefore, 2 is OUTSIDE the parenthesis
