I dont see why PEMDAS is wrong, but if my fucking math teachers were making me dumber all these years I’m gonna bust some ass. ok PEMDAS version 48/2(9+3) 48/2*12 48/24 2
DONT thumb this down, simply explain why the method is wrong, because every damn math teacher makes us use this, so why is it wrong?

You’re actually correct, but for the wrong reason. Let’s go through the steps, shall we? 48/2(9+3) 48/2(12) <-- Parentheses are clearly still there (also, in algebra 2 is one term). 48/24 2
So you were right.

I think that it would be 288, because when I was taught pemdas, I was taught to treat M and D as a single piece, just like A and D are, and when there are multiple multiplications and divisions, just go from right to left. 48/2(9+3) 48/2(12) 24(12) 288
