48/2y is kind of ambiguous, since it could mean (48/2)y or 48/(2y), depending on what the author means.

According to the above 48/2 could be 24 ,or (48/1).2 = 96 ??, depending on what the author means ??

Since 2 = 1.2 ??

That is why i asked you how much is 48/2

Further more could be 24(x-a) ,or:

= [].(x-a) =

Of course it is up to you to answer or not.

I just wanted to show what i ment by asking those questions

No, what you have are two different expressions. Since you could write 48/(1*2), which would be 24.

Further more could be 24(x-a)

Ahh, not it cannot.

= [].(x-a) =

No it could not unless you completely change the standard convention of what the notation of [math]/frac{a}{b}[\math] means.

You can simplify it easily,

Write this as,

Now, simply divide 48 by 2 and then multiply,

I hope it' ll help.
