Isn't it left to right? Like you read?

2. 48/2(9+3) = ?

- (9+3) -> 12
48/2 x (12)
- 48/2 -> 24
24 x 12
- 24 x 12 -> 288

48/2(9+3) = 288

omfgg i know 3rd grade mathh !

3. BEDMAS for me.
And it equals 2.

4. If you write out an equation like that, you deserved to be shot on sight.

5. 228 for me seems illogical to be it any other way.
2 doesnt make any logic because using the distributive property on the multiplication is b4 whats inside of the parenthesis.
Besides you threat this like a regular equation.
Wait a second....did i just contradicted myself there?
this is what happens when i use the pc´s calculator instead of manual paper math...

As an engineering major, if that appeared on my exam, I'd write fuck you, pull out a gun and shoot the dumbfuck. But you can write it as 48 * 1/2 * 12 and get the correct answer fairly simply.

What type of engineer?

8. I don't understand. You guys have to write out the question? I learned this in like the 5th grade and I did the problem in my head in like 2 seconds.

Please tell me you got 288 and not 2.
