Yup....288...what's the reason for the poll???

davidonmars 04-12-2011 12:01 PM

saw it on other car forums and alot of people seem to think its 2 so i wanted to see what you guys thought

They've never heard of your aunt pemdas. Lol Parentheses, exponents, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction.

they are multiplying the 2 by 12 then dividing 48 by 24. Ford forum?

^^^ hahaha "Ford Forum?" :)

I came up with 2.
According to PEMDAS first you do whats in parantheses which would be (9+3)=12
Then you would do Multiplication which would be 2*(12)=24
Then you would Divide which is 4824=2
Therefore your answer is 2.
Then again I could be wrong its been a long time since i've done any math problems.

Yup, I got 2 as well until I checked the order of precedence thing. Lo and behold when you are dealing with division and multiplication they are the same order however go from left to right. Sooooooo the division is done first in this case hence 288 ha ha ha kind of a trick question.

I thought it was PEDMAS or BEDMAS but either way multiplication or division is done whichever comes first when reading from left to right.. It is a tricky question kinda like getting out the rear spark plugs on the drivers side on the hemi haha I see the wrong answer is leading the poll :P

If you google for "482(9+3) =" It comes back with an answer of 288.. And we all know that google is never wrong.. haha
