The correct answer for 482(9+3) is 288


Remember that expressions in paranthesis () are executed first, followed by other expressions in order of hierarchy. Operands of the same hierarchical level are executed in order from left to right. The omission of an operand at either of these locations n( and/or )n in an equation implies * by default, i.e. n*( and/or )*n. So we get the following:

482(9+3) = 482(12) = 482*12 = 288

It would have been 2 had multiplication had a higher hierarchical level than division.


Just realised I've voted for the wrong option.

Ditto- 2

Add what is in parentheses multiply by 2 then divide it into 48.

That was 4th -6th grade Math where I went to public school.

I can see where you can get 2 and 288 from, but can you show how you arrive at 17 ?
