If the BIDMAS rule is to be observed then Brackets first, so 48/ 2(12)

Then 12 still bracketed should be multiplied by 2

Finally 48 divided by 24 answer 2 OR is it ?

Blah blah blah blah blah 2

It’s 288, the inside of the brackets most be resolved first but since 2*(12) it’s a multiplication, it most be resolved after any multiplication or division located to it’s left:

48/2*(9+3)

48/2*(12)

24*(12)

288
