48 is correct, as per natural [germanic based] language which is expressed left to right. same way you read a sentence, in the order presented.

it's 24 if it's "bodmas", but seeing as bodmas is younger than natural language it's absolutely not new math rules,

in fact it's the original and oldest math rules.

and btw: any accountant
1. will tell you 4 X 3 + 4 X 3 = 48, anything else and the auditors will have your skin.
2. in accounting brackets BRACES mean something completely different than others suggest,
.... i.e. 4 X 3 + (4 X 3) = 0 ... 4 X 3 + (4) X (3) = 48 ... 4 X (3 + 4) X 3 = -84

so those old rules are:
- still very much alive
- very important to the person that provisions the money for your pay/salary.
