I got 2, the way it is written, and here is why. Everyone agrees we do the parentheses first, and get 12. Then, we work with the 2(12) because that is the way it is written, just like if it were written 48/2*12 you would do the fraction first working left to right, just like if it were written as 482. Since there is no mathematical symbol separating the 2 and (12) you treat them as one figure, used to divide the 48. By using the parentheses they are implying that is one figure, 2(12) and not 2 separate numbers, 2*12.

Its a double implication. Therefore it isnt a valid equation. No valid answer can exist.

It is an algebraic equation. In algebra you must eliminate the ( ) first and then do the math. The answer is 2.

The answer is 2

First you do the parenthesis.
Then you multiply out the the number next to the parenthesis because this implies multiplication.
Finally you divide.

God I hope I know this, I teach children for a living.

I stand by statement - I fail the equation writer.

Math is math; and math has hard rules.....no implications.

Implication is English. ie - Run + Chicken = ?? Fox?? Rooster?? Human?? Any/All could be correct.
Run + Chicken implies the chicken is scared....but what if it's training for the Olympics?

Interesting how you called it pemdas. I learned in school bedmas. brackets, exponents, division & multiplication (in the order they appear), addition & subtraction (in the order they appear). Still works, just found it interesting.

And hey, I am a member of some Ford forums too, and I got it right.

It's hilarious that the wrong answer is winning, and that the math teacher should find a different course to teach.
