BODMAS is the order of operations:
B Brackets first
O Orders (ie Powers and Square Roots, etc.)
DM Division and Multiplication (lefttoright)
AS Addition and Subtraction (lefttoright)
Depend on how the question is written.
48/2(9+3) yeilds 2
48/2*(9+3) yields 288
So without the implied multiplication the order of operations seems to be affected.

Come on Dan, dont disappoint me lol
Brackets first, thats correct
48/2(9+3)
48/2(12)
so what have you done now? you still have the brackets there
48/24 brackets are gone
now you devide
answer is 2
another way to prove you wrong
look at xtremerevolution. the (9+3) is supposed to be devided by, i dunno how did you bring it up to multiply
