Default Solve 48÷2(9+3)

Solve 48÷2(9+3)

Another forum I post on, has been at war for the past like 10 hours over this equation. What does it equal? I wanna see if people here are just as stupid and divided over this.

I am guessing one half of the population at war over this equation can't even follow simple pemdas.

i was told that multiplication and division, are like the same, so basically you do whatever comes first, same with addition and subtraction, so i'd have to say:

48/2(9+3)
24(12)
288, but idk. It's either that or 2 (considering you follow pemdas exactly)

It's not 2 it's 288. Division and multiplication are "equal" despite what pemdas says. Therefore you do whichever one comes first in the equation.

48 ÷ 2 x (9 + 3)
48 ÷ 2 x 12
24 x 12
288

I like how you say follow bedmas, but then you dont. When I first glanced at it I thought 2 also, but it's wrong I'm now on the 288 crew. Division and multiplication can be switched along with addition and subtraction, just follow the equation from left to right.

So many people are saying 2 and trying to write proofs. It's 288. Go to bodybuilding misc section they're having a war on it, about 50 threads on it in the past few hours kinda funny if you like math and people arguing...yeah I'm bored.

Yeah it could be looked at like : (48/2) * (9+3) but I still will always work it out as 2.. lol

But since it's PEMDAS and multiplication and division are equal, then you go from left to right(as Corey said).. right?

But, my brain will always want to make it 2. Good thing this problem can suck my cock

2

However some people say that once you get to multiplication/division or subtraction/addition you just read it left to right instead of going in the PEMDAS order
