Re: 48÷2(9+3) = ??

nlb apparently doesn't read the rest of the thread and didn't noticed it was derailed for tits.

Edit: By the way, the answer is 2. PEMDAS isn't an American thing, it's a univeral math law for order of operations. PEMDAS tells us that we first need to get rid of the parenthesis in an equation, then the exponents, then multiply/divide (from left to right), then add/subtract (from left to right).

48/2(9+3)=?

For now, we'll ignore the 48, as it's importance in order of operations is nonexistent.

2(9+3) translates into 2 times the sum of 9 and 3.

2(12) = 24

Now, we plug that into the original equation to get:

48/24 = ?
2 = ?
