Re: 48÷2(9+3) = ??
im not responding to your whole post because i jsut dont care enough to. order of operations says you go left to right with equal operations. you are wrong to look at it another way. i did not prove anything faulty. a division sign does not mean to set it up as a fraction. if it was 48 /( 2 x (9+3)) then you could set it up as the denominator but since its set up 48 / 2 x (9+3) its
step 1. 48 / 2 x (12)
step 2. 24 x (12)
step 3. 288
