Might as well get the TDPRI working on this since everyone else is.
2 or 288??
I'm thinking two. Just doing it in my head though. Don'tcha have to start with what's in the parentheses first?
Order of operations! Brackets, Exponents, Division, Multiplication, Addition, Subtraction (BEDMAS) sooo 288!
Yup, just looked up the order of operations after I said 2!! It is 288. Looks like you've got 2 buggy calculators LOL
+1, forgot the little acronym thing but it's naturally burnt into my brain.
+1 on the buggy calculators.
Did it on paper and came up with 288. Then again, my last math class was nearly 40 years ago!!
No bracket around 48/2 soo I vote for 2
48 divided by 2 = 24
9 + 3 = 12
24 x 12 = 288
I'm currently in the 2 camp and IF I change again, I'm going for 145.
(9+3) = 12
x 2 = 24
48 / 24 = 2
I'm going for two. Math is so full of lies that I don't believe in real life. For example, if I take three guitars I don't have and multiply them by another three I wish I had, there is no chance I'm gonna end up with nine guitars.
-3 x -3 = 9 = total BS.
solve for the inside of the paren, then multi, then divide

This site - http://www.mathway.com/problem.aspx?p=basicmath - says:
"288" if you use "/"
"2" if you use "÷"
However, I believe "÷" and "/" are mathematically equivalent.
And since those would be nine square guitars, they would only be worthwhile to Bo Diddley
"M" and "D" are of equal rank and therefore no precedence is given.
PEDMAS = PEMDAS
Same for "A" and "S"
PEDMAS = PEDMSA
3 squared guitars = 9.
And no calculator will do order of operations for you. You just have to remember PEMDAS and you'll be good. And that's really easy math that you should be able to do in your head....

What, your Math teacher wasn't cool, huh?
Or is it a technicality as in
48 divided by 2(9+3)
How do you get the division sign on here?
Brackets 1st so 9+3 = 12
Then time 2 = 24
48/24 = 2
And Bolide, what you have there is 3 imaginary guitars. Now if I recall in maths imaginary numbers are denoted by i which is of course being square root -1 and so an imaginary number. Now if I remember by maths, you've gotta be careful 'cos i times any real number is imaginary so if you multiply real guitars by imaginary guitars, they all end up imaginary and you really don't want that to happen.
Must admit having thought this I've been trying to multiply imaginary guitars by imaginary guitars, but the 335 I'd like has yet to appear as a real guitar....
