    But the 2 is part of the parentheses. Therefore it's translated 48 is divided by 2*12, which is 48 divided by 24. That is 2.

    It's this lack of fundamentals which has resulted in people sitting on the fence or mistakenly blaming the wrong party for the economic hole this country is in....
    Did you hear? There is a college in Durham that this problem would stump. Seems the school is raising their standards and more than 500 student are now in academic trouble....
    requires students to have a cumulative GPA of at least 1.9 to enroll in fall classes, up from the previous minimum GPA of 1.7.

    If this equation were to equal 288 it would read 482 x (9+3). Just to eliminate any confusion.

    2 is right not 288. You have to use order of operations.

    I would be willing to bet that is not unique to any particular college in the area or drastically different from most (Duke, Peace and Meredith might be different becuase they are private and may have different processes for dealing with struggling freshmen). It's all relative and dependent on your perspective and view you are arguing. That number is probably not a shock to anyone who has attended college and looked back at their freshman class and how many did not return. Many people are smart enough to get into college, but not disciplined enough to handle it and vice versa (IMHO: more often, the opposite is true- someone struggles to get in and does phenomenally well in college). Many high acheiving high schoolers maybe academically capable under the watchful eye and of Mom and dad or structure and rules of home, but the maturity is not there and they flounder on their own. I would be willing to bet that school has an erollment of over 5,000 which would make that number ( < 10% ) less surprising. FYI, a "C" average is a 2.0. That means a freshman with less than 24 hours (2 semesters), but making C's and an F or perhaps even B's and few D's or an F in could easily fall into that mix depending upon the class and the credit hours it weighed versus his/her GPA. This is why alot of schools have system where you don't pick a major or enter a "school' until your sophmore year. This avoids numbers like this by keeping freshman out of the big GPA busting classes until they have fully adjusted to college life in 2nd or 3rd semester.

    Two things: 1) i have seen first hand smart people come to college, and lose all discipline and can barely hold a 2.0......

    second to address the last sentence: I know at state to matriculate into engineering(starting out undeclared or in FYC and then sophmore year matriculating) you have to have a 2.9. My roommate now intends to do that but he has a 2.7

    college shows you really who is ready for life and those who are still young dumb and ignorant...or it shows you who is paying for their schooling on their own or those who have mommy and daddy footing the bill...

    overall i agree with DJ's statement
