Understand this girl went to a science school and learned calculus at 9 years old.

So, im wrong. But that's ok, so are half of you lol
WOOOT

Genius girlfriends for everyone who still doesn't get it! xD

that doesnt make sense, now your just mixing up the whole formula

5. 288, there is nothing more to say...

6. It's not really an arguement lol, you either know it or you THINK you know it. I thought it was 2, and I was wrong because I did not follow

Please excuse my dear aunt sally.

48/ 24
= 2

48/(2*(9+3)) aint the same as 48/2*(9+3)
ya u're right , i've made mistake with brackets...was thinking about it but wrote wrong ... lol , anyway the answer would be 2 .

8. I pity the fool

4. 48/24
5. 2

everyones getting different answers because everyone is doing 2 different problems. and yes M comes before D in the word PEMDAS. but as far as doing it in an equation you do whatever comes first, going left to right.
as i said im going to continue to bump this until everyone on these forums takes a basic math course.

someone said the original problem has parenthesis around the 2... this is quoted directly from the link musht posted .

"48÷2(9+3) = ???? "

does anyone see parenthesis around the 2?

PEMDAS:

Parenthesis - anything inside () or brackets gets broken down to simplest form.
Exponents - anything with exponent gets broken down to simplest form
Multiplication - start from left to right, do mult or divison, whichever comes first.
Division - start from left to right, do mult or division, whichever comes first.
Addition - start from left to right, do add or subtract, whichever comes first.
Subtraction - start from left to right, do add or subract, whichever comes first.

ps. thing start handing out 2 day banhammers for anyone that gets 2 lol. and if they claim they are a genius and still get 2, give them a 7day ban :P

ps2. LOL mino i just looked at your link, that guy banned you lmao.

12. LOL they banned me from the website

Idk if they'll delete that thread or not.

Either way 288 = win

You have been banned for the following reason:
trolling.
Date the ban will be lifted: Never
buttwads, what's the point in having a math forum if not to solve math problems lol

Obviously that's it, the Parenthesis are really important.
People who think the answer is: 2 in this operation just had to listen more in primary school
