I know I know.
I didn't just wrote all the sum.
I wrote that like you did.

Yes .
You can write it like this:
48÷2(9+3).

Or Like this:
48÷2 = 24
9+3 = 12
24 * 12 = 288

5. But what math is this anyway, 8th grade or what?

4th.5 i reckon

7. Order of Operations
Parenthesis/Brackets
Exponents & Roots
Multiplication & Division (whichever comes first)

48÷2(9+3)

9+3 = 12
since division comes before multiplication
48/2 = 24
24 x 12 = 288

48÷2(9+3) -- Parenthesis

48÷2(12) -- Then Divide

24(12) -- Then multiply

that 12 is still a parenthesis so you multiply 12 by 2 and get 24. 48/24 = 2. that's the answer.

13. Your math skills are amazing.

14. Are you fucking kidding me? Wow.
