If u got 24, then either you didn't divide into 48 or multiply by 12. There's one more step from the point of "24" either way.

Answer =Two,
Order of operations problem(i.e. please excuse my dear aunt sally). Parenthesis work first(add), then multiply, then divide. You can multiply or divide in any order, but work in parenthesis takes precedence regardless of operation.
Hope this helps, often people play with these sorts of problems, so there may be some trick that they may say affects the answer.

My son is law is right, the answer is 2.
