I thought it was 2 for a while, but it actually is 288.
You do the brackets, but then its Multiplication/Division in the order they appear in. Division is first in the order, so that is done first. The remainder from that division is then multiplied by 12. You end up getting 288.

Only Dix can expose the stupidity of so many members with one post.
I'm not Ben Affleck.
I did the math on both, both are correct. See no issue here.
my working out :
48/2=24
24(9+3)
24*9=216
24*3=72
216+72
=288
Its Parenthesis and if its in the order like 6(6) it is multiplication but if its like 6(6+6) then you add first and after adding you do what is next so if 6(12) is all thats left you do it and get 72 but if you have something like 6/6+6(12) you would do 6/6 being 1 and then 6(12) so it would be 1+72 and make it 73 those are just random numbers it isnt related to the problem but yea
So what you are saying is
(2+3)+(4+5)
is
2+3 + x 4 +5
So the answer would be 5 x 9 not 5 + 9
And there is a invisible multiplication sign at 6x(W). How old are you?

I just want to add another example if brackets means times.
Original question:
7 + 20 + 10 = ? Everyone know its equals 27
But because I want to make it someone to solve one part of this first I'll add a bracket
7 + (20+10) = ? Is the answer now
7 + x(30) = 210

Im saying it just depends on what is in the parenthesis or "brackets" so if a problem is the "brackets" then you would do that first but if there is no problem it should be treated as a multiplication symbol but it reality this problem has no actual answer because it is written wrong both answers are correct
and it would be
(2+3)+(4+5)
(5)+(9)
but since the addition symbol is in the way they are treated as normal numbers and you add so it would be 14 since they are not directly next to each other
