1. go to Add or Subtract Polynomials - WebMath and put in 48/2(9+3) and click button

2. /grab_coke_and_corn
shit starts to get interesting

3. The right answer is 288

4. YUppp its 2 lol...

5. lmao this is awesome.

it's still 2

6. its really sad to see that many ppl dont know math

the right answer 288. only if it was 48/[2(3+9)] the answer would be 2

7. You guys are dumb as fuck, everyone knows the answer is 288, only the first few people saying 2 actually thought it was and then trolls are just tryin to get u mad.

Because
48÷2(9+3)=2
Now I'm going to make it full
1. 9+3=12
2. 2*12=24
3. 48÷24=2
And how can i do 2nd one?
because this 48÷2(9+3)
means between 2& ( there is * which means you have to multiply first & then divide.

hers another example from other forums.

I hope you are trolling... why would you multiply first? divison and mult are on same priority, and when that happens you start from left to right and do whichever comes first. and I'm pretty sure someone from the MISC posted on the physics forum and said 80% agreed that it was 288.

anyways im off 2 play b-ball, will continue arguing later. (even though i said i wouldnt, yes i lied)

this

the problem here is that people almost never use mathemathics in linear form. when it comes to divison you must take parenthesis around the numbers you want to divide with. so the answer would be 2 if there were one more parenthesis like this: 48/(2(3+9)) now it's 48/12 but if you write something like this: 48/2(3+9) then you divide with 2!!! and then multiply with 12... Once again, this is linear form of math it's used to allow people to write math things into the computer using one line. For example you derivate like this: d/dx(2x+3)=2 and you use radicals like this: radical(3^2+4^2)=5

just try to use the Google's Wolframalpha it works exactly the same way.

10. No you have to solve the ( ) first

11. After reading this topic i see few guys have no fuking idea what theyre talking about and telling me i cant do maths?

simply and shortly its all about priorities and this thing was taught to u on fuking 6th grade or smth.

1st you must get rid of the (9+3) beacuse everything placed incide ( and ) gets priority over / , + , - and *

2nd / and * have same priority so u start calculating from fuking right to left.

which brings us this
48/2*(9+3)
= 48/2*12
now we just use the priorities to solve the problem. From left.. to right.
= 24*12
= 288

Go to school idiots lol.. fuking 6th grader got more skills in maths than u.

PS. next guy claiming its actually fuking 48/(2(9+3) is a fuking dumbass:

48/2(9+3)
and
48/(2(9+3)
these 2 things have complely fuking different priorities. You cannot add a ( there if it wasnt given to u in the first place beacuse thats why u all ''=2'' idiots fuk up.

12. Its times like these I'm glad I'm American... Yay public schooling not making me a complete idiot.

PS: No matter what yall "Don't Know" about math, the (2) is part of the parentheses. Its the distributive property, the equation is telling you 48 Divided by the product of 2 times 9+3. Thats how its worded, if you don't understand that well then your hopeless .

I didn't realize such simple math could be so complex to some.

Because
First u do thing in ()
then multiply
AND THEN U FUCKING DIVIDE

Its 2
