you have it backwards, what you are trying to do is missing symbols

its no valid to unless its one term which its not

"well act is wrong because / doesnt meant seperation of a fraction, it means to divide. if the equation was written 48 / 2 x (9+3) he would still get 2 and it would be 288 "

you dont rest any case you idiot, i already posted this about the juxtaposition, that equation doesnt have it so it would be 288. i have not changed one thing i have said the entire time

"The general consensus among math people is that "multiplication by juxtaposition" (that is, multiplying by just putting things next to each other, rather than using the "×" sign) indicates that the juxtaposed values must be multiplied together before processing other operations"
