    its 2. you have to start with the parenthases. 9 plus 3 is 12. since 2(12) means 2 times 12 that equals 24. 48 divide 24 is 2

    I got lucky. My mommy and daddy ran me through twice. Nothing opened my eyes bigger than graduating from the College of Liberal Arts and starting from essentially the very beginning in the College of Engineering. It went from party time and the eloquence of gray matter to sitting beside foreigners who risked getting their head cut off by their family and their government if they performed poorly in Engineering. No Joke. No skating by in those classes.

    In the College of Liberal Arts I learned that on the first day of class, observe where the prettiest girl is sitting. On day 2, arrive early and sit in that seat.

    In the College of Engineering, since there no girls, just sit in the first or maybe the second row. I raised all my classes a letter grade by this alone and didn't spend an extra second studying.

    I also learned that virtually everybody starting college is young, dumb and ignorant.

    all could be correct assumptions but remember they are assumptions hahaha

    This is a great question!
    I say 288 if you follow the order of operations.
    Agree that you add the two numbers in paranthesis first. Then, if I recall correctly, you divide, multiply, add & subtract in that order from left to right. Doing so leaves you with 288.

    Or do you multiply and then divide ? That's the key to the correct answer...

    Mobucks has it right. The rest of you should be looking over your shoulder!

    I don't understand how the answer can be 288?
