But it means it CAN be set up as a fraction, it just doesn't mean that's always the case.

 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
First, you didn't treat it as 48/2*(9+3), you treated it as (48/2)*(9+3). See how brackets make a difference? Second, you have no proof it isn't to be treated as a fraction, since THE ANNOTATION THAT WOULD CLARIFY IF IT'S A DIVISION OR A FRACTION IS ABSENT. Therefore it's faulty!

Will you stop treating faulty stuff as functional?

Edit: Oh, and you changed your mind about the result? Was it because you didn't think at first or the equation is ambiguous enough for you to change sides?
