Not really because multiplication and division are of the same level and are worked out in order or appearance. But as I've said that does not apply in this scenario because there is only 1 operation.
no there isn't. The implied function is still a function whether the * sign is present or not.
I take it you failed all forms of algebra then.
No dumbkopf, it's precisely as Hurricane said. It's read:

48
-- *(9+3)

You can't just add a multiplication sign.

It is 2, you multiply before dividing.
288 = (48/2)(9+3)

Anyways, the lesson here is too always use (...) to clarify what you mean?

And good point @ Winston_Churchill on page 1, nobody would switch it too 48x/2, does not make sense
multiplying does not take precedence over division, its which ever comes first when that is all you have left. and clearly division comes before the multiplication.

I don't think you've ever written a post where I didn't say to myself 'that is a thoroughly unpleasant and unhappy child'. See a shrink.

There is no right answer because the equation is set out incorrectly.

The person who wrote this problem is a master troll. 6 pages of niggahs being trolled.

How about some troll maths with the distributive property?

48÷2(9+3) = ??
48÷18+6 = ??
2.6r + 6 = ??
8.6r

And again!

48÷2(9+3) = ??

[48÷2(9+3)]/(9+3) = x/(9+3)
48÷2 = x/(9+3)
(24)12 = (x/12)12
24 * 12 = x

288 = x

The division sign means everything after it is considered to be in the denominator.
Thus

48
---
2(9+3)

not

48 (9+3)
--------
2

Answer is 2

this is why you are supposed to use LONG division bars.

like

48

2(9+3)

or

48
---- * (9+3)
2
No, that's why you write brackets, like I stated a few posts above. Written as in the OP, it's 288, no discussion.
no, implied multiply takes priority over left-to-right

but what if you inverse the denominator and substitute the / for a *?
