288

9+3=12
48/2=24
12*24=288

Hmm if both sets are in ( ) then it would be 2...if not 288

 2 or 288 depends since multiplication and division are the same in PEMDAS

PEMA

(P)arenthesis 
(E)xponents 
(M)ultiplication and Division (from left to right) 
(A)ddition and Subtraction (from left to right) 

First you evaluate whats in the parenthesis 
48÷2(9+3) = 48÷2(12) 
Now you do multiplication and division from left to right. In this case, the division comes first since it is more to the left. 
48÷2(12) = 24(12) 
Now you multiply 
24(12) = 288
