# Thread: Hey MPGH, what do you think? 48÷2(9+3)=?

1. Best confusion in math.. Made me think a bit even though I already knew the answer (way before I even read all the comments), just didn't care to say anything and see if y'all going to solve it or not.

2. holy crap
48/2*(9+3)=48/2 * (9+3)/1=12*48/2=6*48=228 !
Daum niggas.

3. 24 times 12 results in 288 .. duh?

1. Brackets - 48 ÷ 2 (12 )
2. Indices - NIL
3. Division - 24 (12)
5. Subtraction - NIL

Thus 24 ( 12 ) is 288

Right? You can't teach things to stupid, because they'll never learn

13. 48÷2(9+3)=288

48÷2(12)
24(12)
288

48÷2(9+3)=2

48÷2(12)
48÷24
2

Its ambiguous it doesnt really have a legit answer because of how it contradicts its self you have to write it as (48/2)(9+3) or 48/(2(9+3)) to make it unambiguous
