I came up with 2.
The 2 being directly next to the parenthesis made me multiply whatever was in the parenthesis by 2.... And whatever that was would be divided. Therefore 2 times ...9 + 3...... 2 times 12..... Which is 24 Back to the original 48 / 24 = 2

The answer is a resounding 288. If we follow the order of operations known as PEMDAS, we do the following: parenthesis, exponents, multiplication & division, addition & subtraction.
Parenthesis first 48/2(12) Since multiplication and division are equally ranked, we then go left to right, per convention 24(12) Then we finish it up 288. Besides, I used my TI83 Plus using the same notation and it cranked out 288. This is crazy, but I learned something today. Please, don't argue with my calculator's logic. It is sound and should be respected. It is the law of the land and it reigns supreme. Last edited by Null; 11102012 at 04:07 AM..
