ok... you need to do the brackets 1st 9 + 3 = ? can you do that

3. tcarroll010

Operations in parentheses are done first. Then, when a number appears next to parentheses, the implied operation is multiplication.

4. hali12

already did that teacher said it was wrong

5. campbell_st

well what did you get for 9 + 3..?

6. hali12

528

7. hali12

9+3=12

8. campbell_st

ok so you have after doing the brackets you work left to right $48 \div 2\times12 =$

9. hali12

24 x 12 = 288

10. hali12

still says it wrong

11. campbell_st

well the only option left is an answer of 2... 48/24 = 2 if thats the case you teacher has written the question incorrectly...

12. hali12

ohhhhhhhhh ok

13. campbell_st

to get an answer of 2 you need $48 \div(2(9 + 3)$
