The distributive property of multiplication CLEARLY states that the 2(9+3) is an entire statement and CANNOT be broken up. 2(9+3) follows the distributive property which can be rewritten as (2*9+2*3). Let me repeat the 2 outside of the parenthesis follows the distributive property of multiplication and must be factored and simplified before performing any other operations on it. You do NOT compute this expression from left to right until you use Algebra to simplify the statement 2(9+3).

So this can be rewritten as:
48 / (2*9 + 2*3)

Which leaves us with

48 / 24 = 2

Answer = 2.

Lastly for those using Google or any other online calculator. These do not understand many theorems or properties so you must explicitly explain what you mean. There is a difference between 48 / 2 * (9+3) and 48 / 2(9+3). The first notation reads 48 / 2 * 1(9+3) while the second reads 48 / (2*9+2*3). Be very careful with your signs.


Yes, this is clearly copied and pasted from another site. Howerver 2 is the answer I got and this agrees with me so cleary it is correct.

I know 6+3=9 but it bothers me

Order of operations rules put division and multiplication at the same level of priority. (because they are the same operation)

Priority is:

Parenthesis
Exponentiation
Multiplication and division (division is invert and multiple)
Addition and subtraction (subtraction is change sign and add)


Thus, to make it most clear change divide by 2 into multiply by 1/2 (or 0.5)

48*(1/2)*12 =


If this were expressed in the most common computer code it would look like this:

answer = 48/2*(9+3)

The computer WILL return the value 288. As it should.

BTW: The answer is NEVER: both, or undefined, or unclear, or indeterminate. The rules are there to make it clearly defined, and they do.

A strict mathematician will have a slightly different technical explanation and will come up the same results. They will not call it "Order of Operations" but "Implied Parenthesis".

Now for an analysis of the answer statistics.

More got it wrong (145) than got It right (132).

Random guesses should have yielded 50%/50% and these results are statistically within that limit.
