You cannot divide 48 by "2(9+3)". You must first solve the 2(9+3). The correct answer is 2. In algebra there are [ ] ,brackets and then these ( ). They are used in this order [ ( ) ]. You solve the brackets first and then the parenthesis to get everything to a whole number to the right of the division symbol. Then you divide.
