What - have you not taken factoring? Replace 2 with X

48÷x(9+3)

It's one term because it's connected to the bracket which MUST be dealt with first. The question you are after is do you drop the brackets once you add. I would say no, again, based on what I was taught.

2(9+3) or 2(12) is still one term and can be treated as such.

In any case, I'm convinced you're just trolling now.
