I came into this thread and was able to come to the conclusion of this math problem. Seems what I thought had died long ago is still lingering around in my brain.

Also, why wouldn't you just write it as 24*12?

48 (divided by) 2(9 + 3)

9+3 = 12
2(12) = 24
48 (divided by) 24 = 2 <----------*cough*


The answer is: 2.



And EVEN IF you think the answer is 288... check this out:



Use Multiplication and Division between the digits in 288.

'2' DIVIDED BY '8' = 0.25

0.25 TIMES '8' = 2 <------------- *cough*

Reverse it.

'2' TIMES '8' = 16

16 DIVIDED BY '8' = 2 <-----------*cough*

Now use Addition and Subtraction with the same digits.


'2' PLUS '8' = 10

10 MINUS '8' = 2 <--------------*cough*

Reverse it.

'2' MINUS '8' = -6

-6 PLUS '8' = 2 <--------------*cough*



Math is fun.

Geez guys it isn't that complicated. The math problem is simply written incorrectly. Since it is missing the extra bracket, the answer is indeed 288. Also, the one poster is correct in that there is only one language for math.

If it were indeed 2, it would read 48/(2(9+3)) rather than 48/2 *(9+3).

uhhhh.... 48 (divided by) is not to be even touched until the numbers INSIDE bracket are solved first. and numbers TOUCHING BRACKETS are solved second and applied to the "main" equation.

OVERALL is 48 divided by result of 2(9+3)
OVERALL is 48 divided by 2(12)
OVERALL is 48 divided by 24
OVERALL EQUATION = 2

INSIDE FIRST
OUTSIDE TOUCHING SECOND
OVERALL LAST

YOU cannot INVENT BRACKETS. L2Math.

Oh for crying out loud...

48/2(9+3)

Division is reciprocal multiplication, so...

=48*0.5*(9+3)

This is not hard, people. Always convert all divisions into reciprocal multiplications, which removes any ambiguity in the language.

It's not a language problem, it's a stupid problem.

I've been wondering for weeks what kind of adult could possibly be going on and on with all the raging and protesting about the scary things CCP hasn't actually done yet.

Now I have my answer: the people who can't do grade school math.

Thanks to the OP for posting this. I hope all the rage quitters are actually quitting to go back to school and learn some basic reasoning skills.

Obelus '' The obelus is primarily used as a symbol for division (as on a calculator) and as an operator in elementary arithmetic. Division is also signified in other ways usually as a fraction: by writing the operands one above the other and separated by a line, or on the same line separated by a solidus or slash. Source

One above the Other.

48 2(3+9) = 2

48
-------
2(3+9) <----- One above the Other.


Left to Right predecence? Yes. Written properly? Yes.

The ommision of the Multiplication symbol signifies that this equation has 3 WHOLE groups, not 2. Therefore, in order to get the answer, you need to solve the groups first. Since the Group 1 is already solved, in ORDER:

48 is Group 1
------ <--- DIVIDE BY = Fraction = One above the Other.
2(3+9) is Group 2, which is to be solved still based on Bracket rules of Implied Math.

48
-----
2(12) Group 3 solved with Addition of Bracket contents

48
---
24 Group 2 is now solved by Multiplication of it's contents.


Fraction results

2
----
1

= 2 1

= 2




To explain further:

If the equation was written like this, instead: 48 2 x (3+9) THEN, the answer would be 288, as Group 1 would be 48/2 X and Group 2 (3+9) In order. Kthxbye.

Where did you guys go to school? This is BASIC math!

48  2(3+9)   =   48  2 * 12   =   24 * 12   =   288


I suggest some of you reread your highschool math books. This is not a language issue.

Sorry man, but OMMISION of the Multiplication symbol implies grouping. And that has to be solved first. The equation is ambiguous on that end. You cannot come up with your answer unless you change the original equation to your taste. I, on the other hand, DO NOT CHANGE THE ORIGINAL EQUATION in solving it.

Ommision of the multiplication symbol implies multiplication.
Example:
5x + 7y * 9z = (5 * x ) + ((7 * y) * (9 * z))

so what you're saying is


48 2(12)

48 (2 x 12) = 288 ?

Incorrect.

48  2 * 12 = 24 * 12


You move one ( to the left in your example:
48  2 * (12)
is not the same as
48  (2 * 12)

I don't know but I can't stress enough the fact that 288 only comes when people don't use algebra to solve it.

48 2(3+9)

a = 3
c = 9

a + c = b

b = 12

48 2(a + c)

48 2(b)

48 2b

48 (2 x b)

48 (2 x 12)

48 24 = 2

48 2(a + c)

48 2(b)
--> This is the part where you are wrong. 48 2 * (b) = 48 2 * b -> You have to solve this from left to right: first 48 2 then multiply that result by b.
48 (2 x b)

48 (2 x 12)

48 24 = 2

I understand your reasoning, but Ommision implies grouping. Grouping stays intact in all equations. You can't "ungroup" the 2b once it's formed.
