The Standard Order of Operations should not be applied in this type of equation.
~ 48÷2*(9+3) = ???
In both the SOOO and PEMDAS rules, parenthesis are simplified first before proceeding.
Both rule simply the equation to 48÷2*(12) or 48÷2*12
SOOO vs Pemdas
~ SOOO will basically simplify it to 288.
~ PEMDAS will basically simplify to 2.
The resulting answer between both differs due to dissimilar order of mathematical processes.
~ Division is applied before multiplication in SOOO.
~ Multiplication is applied before division in PEMDAS
SOOO should not be applied in this type of equation since 12 is simplified from a parenthesis which involved addition.
The sum, 2 is proceeded using the PEMDAS rule since multiplication must be done first since the equation wuz simplified from a parenthesis. And since 48 wuz not derived from a parenthesis we proceed with multiplication before division.
Google simplifies 48÷2*(9+3) into (48÷2)*(9+3), perhaps since it follows the SOOO in any type of equation. The indication of parenthesis in 9+3 depicts that such must be multiplied to 2. The absence of parenthesis in 48÷2 tells that both is not to be simplified first and thus 2 must be multiplied to the sum of the parenthesis before division is to be proceeded.
Therefore, there is only 1 correct solution to the equation which is 2
