It may be years ago, but I can still remember the basics of mathematics.
Someone actually knows how to do an Algebra formula besides me.

482(9+3) Once you do the work in brakets this question becomes
482x12 At this point you follow the math rule that you do complex problems in the order they appear, which gives you
24x12= 288

For the formula

what is the value of d when u = 3, v = 11 and t = 5?

Like I stated before where is the division sign? There isn't one.

The division sign is replaced by the slash making it a fraction and it is placed EXACTLY where the division sign was.

48/ 2(9+3)= 2

That's just different notation.

Quote:
Division is often shown in algebra and science by placing the dividend over the divisor with a horizontal line, also called a vinculum or fraction bar, between them. For example, a divided by b is written

This can be read out loud as "a divided by b", "a by b" or "a over b". A way to express division all on one line is to write the dividend, or numerator then a slash, then the divisor, or denominator like this:

Two answers: 2 or 288

I first saw this on another forum and then subsequently on others. The amount of threads arguing which answer is the correct one is hilarious.

So where does SF stand?

I think I found the division sign Mike. Give Topper an apple for me will ya? Thanks

Only important if you want to find the right answer.
