Nope. Still summer
You all have been trolled by a picture. Good God.
Suprised i actually remembered how to do that!
@ISNIPEKITTIES, what's the answer? I got as far as 24*12.
@JenniBoo, youre correct
@JenniBoo, no sorry...
@JesusSandals, What grade are you even in? How do you f*ck up something as simple as order of operations?
@JenniBoo, actually, it's 288. PEMDAS
@JenniBoo, right on buddy. That's what i got
So what was the point of this..
Wow... I can see why we are ranked so low in education... It's 288 if you don't believe me use a calculator. This is sixth grade math.
It is 228. For order of operations you do what is in the parenthesis first. Then, if multiple multiplications and/or divisions are present, you do them left to right. You divide the 48 by two and then multiply that by 12. Trust me, I'm an accounting major.
@DrahcirAloer, Well I'm a math major, and you're wrong. It's definitely 2. Check your math again
@Sad Capitalist, i am a physics major and math minor the answer is 228 trust me i know
@Poop licker, I'm in eighth grade, watch this: 48\2(9+3)== 48/2(12)==== 48/24=2. B*tch. PS... @DrahcirAloer, if you are an accounting major, why are you on a stupid iPhone app proving your worth to 12 year olds?
@Phatphace, oh the shame you do not divide 48 by 24 but you multiply them so if you are in eighth grade i wouldnt be going around telling graduates that they are wrong
@DrahcirAloer, it's 2. If you go with bidmas or bodmas. You do everything with the brackets first- 2(9+3) then you do the next steps in the order of dmas (division, multiplication, addition and subtraction) since there's only division, we have to do 48 divided by 24.
@Beloscar, the only thing in the brackets was 9+3. In America we learned PEMDAS in 5th grade. After learning it, a simple equation like this is really easy. There are literally 4 steps which can be done mentally if one has the capability too. Also math major seriously? I expected much better from you. But when you learn harder equations I suppose the easier ones escape your memory. Or you could just be lying to sound smarter
@DrahcirAloer, also I'm pretty sure 24x12 is 288.....then again I'm a freshman
@Beloscar, do what is in brackets first then in order from left to right so after you divide (which you should do first) then when two numbers are side by side you multiply them so in this case 12 multiplied by 24 is 288 (i know in my first comment i did do the multiplication wrong so sorry my bad)
@Sad Capitalist, your stupid
@DrahcirAloer, F*CK YOU ALL YOU FAKES...ITS F*CKING 2
@Sad Capitalist, 228 is correct, you should check YOUR math (order of operations)
@DrahcirAloer, Or you could just put it in a calculator and get 228 you don't have to me a math major to figure that one out...
@DrahcirAloer, FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU you guys are making my head overload!! According to PEMDAS, the answer would be 228. Then again, according to the Distribution Method, the answer would be 2.
@Sad Capitalist, he's right dumba$$
@DrahcirAloer, yay I got the same answer!
@Sad Capitalist, it's 288 google said so...
@DrahcirAloer, um 288
@DrahcirAloer, an accounting major that can't do 24 times 12 it's 288
@Sad Capitalist, I'm pretty sure you might be retarded because if you know how to do BEDMAS the answer will be 288
@Sad Capitalist, I even just Googled it 4 sites all say 228....not 2 if you're a math major you need to give up your diploma.
I mean 288 god those comments screwed me up.
FFS it's 288, simple order of operations the MD in pemdas means either one first, meaning whatever is first from the left is first, multiply or divide. Herp derp, I learned this in 5th grade!
@spongebobcirclepants, wrong 288
Ok, folks, the reason it isn't 2 is because 2(12) is just 2x12. So, going left to right, it's 48/2, and then the answer to that times 12, which is 288. For it to be 2, you'd be going backwards, multiplying right to left, which is incorrect.
@Snoopy 20111, No it's 2 because 2(12) is still taking care of parentheses which is FIRST priority in PEMDAS
@Doctors Companion, actually, it's not taking care of parentheses anymore, it's just simple multiplication after adding 9 and 3.
@Snoopy 20111, you're wrong
@Snoopy 20111, It is 2, because PEMDAS (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Adding, Subtracting) First, 9+3 inside Parentheses, which is 12. Then there are no Exponents, but a sneaky multiplication in 2 * 12. That would be 24. Then move onto the next order. Division. 48/24= *2*
@mexican zebra, not really. Multiplication/Division have the same priority level, so you go from left to right. So from 48/2*12, you get 24*12, which is 288
@Snoopy 20111, Im an engineer, like every honest fellow, i take my wiskey clear, im a rambling wreck from golden tech, a helluva engineer. Also the answer is actually 2, you can prove this by working through the problem in a different manner, lets say that you never added anything, but instead you started off by foiling. If you multiply 2x9 and 2x3 first this will give you 18 + 6, now by order of operations you will get 48 ÷ 18 + 6, which will equal 48 ÷ 24, which equals 2. I will now take my leave!
18 plus 6,
48 divided by 18 plus 6
48 divided by 24
Jesus everyone. Pemdas is what is needed here but division and multiplication can be switched. It is which ever one is first in the equation. In this case, the division is first, and it proceeds the parentheses, making the answer 288. 2 is so fvcking incorrect it hurts
@Snoopy 20111, don't worry. You are right. All these other arseholes are wrong
@patrickcranley13, im necroing this because your arrogance hurts my eyes. one thing I remember from school is that those cheap calculators don't do it right. you need a graphing calculator because this equation is the same as the fraction 48 over 2(9+3) the answer is 2. graphing calc confirms it. the engineer who used the foil property also proved it.
I think it's 288...
@Goofy Geek, I just calculated that and you are god d@mn right!
@Myself I can't believe I screwed it up. 288, not 228. So much for being an accounting major...
F*ck it let's just say its 4 so were all wrong. U guys with me?
@drahcirAloer I'm pretty sure 24 • 12 is 288...
Google said 288 AND GOOGLE IS NEVER WRONG. Order of operations was on the 7th grade state test and I remember that I made a 98. That was a few years back.
The real answer is 288. Learn math. I'll e happy to explain if you don't believe me
Lol. It's not called "Distributive property," it's called multiplication. PEMDAS, f*ggot. The answer is 288. Ask your math teacher.
God, people ate so stupid it isn't 2 it's 288
Well done jenniboo correct!
I learned this stuff in the seventh grade.
Order of operations makes it 288
48/2(9+3) = 48/2(12) = 14(12) = 288
288 order of operations
I know no one will see this ever... but It's really funny to see so many people saying that they're math majors and still getting this question wrong. The answer is 288. Brackets first, then you divide, then you multiply. Good day.
I could still be wrong. I'll admit I can't always be right. But either way, it really doesn't change the quality of the joke, let's just move on
Well actually because of PEMDAS, you would work out the stuff in the parenthesis first and then move one to the multiplication then division.
For the last time it isn't 2!
This is how wars start.
288 dumb nuts 9+3=12. 48/2=24(12)=288
Why dont we all just use a calculator?
Ok 48/2(9+3)=288 I will explain it. First you do (9+3) =12 you get 48/2(12) simply put 48/2x12 you go from left to right 48/2=24 and 24x12=288 not 228 or 2 or etc.
Jesus christ, I'm surrounded by morons.
Thanks stuck pixel for your check up
Multiplication and division aren't in any specific order, dumb*sses. Same with subtraction and addition. You start BACK at the beginning of the problem after you've done what you did.
.... It's hard to believe its summer vacation for users here in school, what with all the mathematic debate going on here. I already got it right in my earlier comment, as did pretty much all of you. Case closed?
This pic has a lot of comments for an equation...PS chodo shut the f*ck up, nobody likes [insert random thing here] suck, chodo good. Its retarded like you
You guys who say 2 are all dumbasses, it's 288
The brackets signify the denominator is multiplied through by 12, not the entire fraction, an extra pair of brackets around the 48/2 would be required for it to mean anything else. In the same way 2/1(x) is 2/x NOT 2x
doesn't the 2 being adjacent to the parenthesis make it one term, making the answer two? just a thought.
Not worth it. Skipping.
It's 2 because 2(12) can't be separated.
I'm a Maths major, it's 2. It would only be 228 if it was (48 / 2)(9 + 3), otherwise you simplify the addition, then the multiplication. Were that question in an exam the answer would be 2 as that is the least ambiguous answer.
@Paradigm, you might want to pick a different major...
it's 288 if you actually know how to do this problem. i've known this stuff since 4th grade.
Guys it's not 2 it's 228. Even my thirteen year old cousin got it right. You do the parenthesis first which is 12 and then do 48 divided by 2 which is 24. It's 24 TIMES 12 not dividing. It's 228. Go google it and see for yourself if you don't believe the smart people saying 228.
@BunnyButter, the smart people are saying 288, because that's the right answer
If you listen closely, you can hear Sheldon crying over how many people got this wrong. . .
228 or 288 depending on the order of operations
"2?" gets 188likes and "2" gets 24 dislikes... Wow
@RayWilliamJohson 48/24=2. Not 28. Hah. 228 is the answer.
No it's 2. Doesn't anyone remember PEMDAS?
Ok, so we're all fighting over the awnser (which is 228), but no matter the awnser, how is this 'funny'?
@jenniboo shuld b 2, unless I'm crazy
LOOK! YOU DO THE PARENTHESES FIRST, 12. Multiply it by 2! 24! So now divide 48 by 24! It's 2! God, is summer really making you all forget the order of operations????
Is it supposed to e funny because he's holding up three fingers
It's not 2 how stupid are you people.
The correct answer would actually be 288...... What am i doing with my life
All of you people are really dumb. Do BEDMAS. !
GUYS GUYS!!!!!! STOP THE FIGHTING, THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT STUCKPIXEL WANTED, FOR US TO TURN ON OUR FELLOW VIEWERS AND COMMENTERS, SO STOP!!!!
BEDMAS. Do brackets first.
@Titty Sprinkle, there are no brackets!
It's sad how few people can do this, and then the "accounting major" got 228? It's 288. 12 x 24=288.
You people are retarded you dived 48 by 2 before you multiply it by 12 it's so simple
It's 2. If you don't think it is, then you shouldn't be allowed to drive a car
I'm an accountant. Not a major, I actually graduated unlike the idiots on here. The answer is 2. You follow PEMDAS. Parenthesis first.. So 48 / 2(12)..48 / 24 = 2. It's really simple math..
@P71Cvpi87, please revert back to the basics. Multiplication and Division have the same priority in the equation, so you go from left to right. Therefore making it 48/2*12=24*12=288. You may have graduated, but I've learned it more recently, so I think your credentials are actually counting against you here
Its 2, im a boss at maths HL
Math suck Chodo good
First of all when you do pemdas it should be pe(md)(as), the stuff in parentheses, when you have those left, you do it from left to right, 288
@slapthetrolls, A well thought out and correct comment. YAY!
2 like a B0$$
Am I only one who actually did this? Btw answers 2
Guys, it's 2. Do paratheses first, which is 12 then multiply that by 2, which is 24 then devide 48 by 24 which is 2
but the answer is 2? isn't it?
It's 288, so sad to here all this I have a math major and they still get it wrong 24:
Order of operations: parentheses- 9+3=12x2=24 division- 48/24=2
Distribute the freakin 2
8.66 repeating *forever alone*
The answer is 2. So.... Where's the funny?
Order of operation... Answer is 2
the distributive property comes before division. imagine you were pulling out 2 as a factor, you're still dividing 48 by 24
288?? Are you guys retarded its 2
PEMDAS parenthesis exponents multiplication division addition subtraction.. It's 2
Am i the only one who actually tried to find the answer?
It's 48 divided by 2(12)= which is 2?
It is 2.
Order of operations makes the answer 2 god dammit
@Wigglesniff, no dammit, you clearly dont know order of operations. You don't distribute the 2, you add 9 and 3 first, then go left to right. It is 228
Is it 69?
Technically isn't it 5.66666667? If you do the distributive property first, then divide (PEMDAS), then add? 48/2(9 3), 48/18 6, 2.66666667 3, 5.66666667
Its 2. 48/2(9+3)=48/2(12)=48/24=2. 2
I got a theory for ya WHO THE FU€K CARES
Everyone who is saying 228 is ignoring the fact that you simplify the numbers down as low as they go first, then divide.
9+3=12 48/2=24 24 multiplied by 12=228 clearing it up for the people who think it is 2
@Poop licker, 288
It's just 48 \ by 12
48 divided by 2 is 24, 24 times 12 is 48, I still fail to see the humor in this
You distribute first. That's what the parentheses mean. I feel bad for whoever employs the accounting major.
Why don't we stop calling each other idiots, and call the guy who wrote this confusing as sh*t problem one instead?
How is this funny? It's 2--- maybe I'm just a nerd. *facepalm*
Its 2.182, you're welcome
*sigh* you need to bracket the 2(9+3) as [2(9+3)].
It 2 or 36 I don't know
Crab claw method/distributive law!
For all of you who thin it is two explain to me why you think that
Guys it's 2 u gotta distribute first then 48 divided by 24= 2 it's first grade spongebob!!! (wumbology)
this was on 9gag... the answer is 2 so dont both arguing
actally guys, its 2 beacause of order of operations. p, e, m, d, a, s, with the m and d being multiply and divide :) so there bitch
Am I missing something? What’s the joke? It’s just 288, but is that a reference to something or...?
There shouldn’t be this many comments.
Doesn't make mathematical sense
The answer is 2. PEMDAS
Either answer is acceptable when the question is in this format
Order of operations people BEDMAS
I don't get it. Math jokes just never add up to me.
Don't get it. I guess Math jokes just never add up to me.
This is why America is f*cked...
4 I think
It would be 24x12
It all depends on how you were thought to deal with parentheses using PEMDAS. Some schools say that you can just get rid of unnecessary parentheses, others say you have to remove them. 48 / 2 (12). Some people learn that you can't just erase parentheses, they have to be removed, using PEMDAS. IE the reason some people get 2. Because 2(12) would effectively be getting rid of the parentheses.
It all depends on how you learned to work PEMDAS. Some schools teach it in a way that unnecessary parentheses go away, others don't.
Please excuse my dead aunt Sally.
Let me break it down! Parenthesis first! 48/ 2(12)=? Then! Multiplication! 48/ 24=? Then! Divid =2. Your welcome.
6192, common guys
I got 36...
That's easy! The answer is 4 gorilla butts. AP calculus BC wasn't a waste after all!
@Prince super Vegeta , you're a funny person
2. (9+3)=12... 2x12=24... 48%24=2
FOIL YOU JACKASSES!!!
Scavenger Hunt winners! Comment below!!! [must reply] btw... BUTTSEX
@Doctor who rocks just because it is PEMDAS doesn't mean it is multiplication before division. It is whichever one of those 2 that comes first in the equation, this one being division.
I'll explain. You start with the parenthesis first, making those parenthesis 12. Then, 48 divided by 2 is 24. When one number is next to another without a sign, it means multiply. So it's 24 x the number in parenthesis, which is 12, and 24 x 12 = 288.
@qwertyderp you're an idiot
