What is the answer to this question?
48÷2(9+3)=

( If I do it with PEMDAS, the answer would be 2, but when I type in google, it give me 288)
[ 9+3 = 12 -> 48/2(12) -> 2 x 12 = 24 -> 48/24 = 2]

PEMDAS works like this:
1. Parentheses
2. Exponential
3. Multiplications and Divisions

BUT when multiplications and divisions are both present without parentheses, they are executed from left to right.

The same rule applies when we have additions and subtractions.

So
48÷2(9+3)
=48÷2*12
=24*12
=288

Compare with
6-2+3
=4+3
=7
