Answer:

It can be interpreted in two ways:

#32/(y+12)" "# or #" "32/y +12#

Explanation:

The statement does really indicate clearly enough what is meant.

It could be interpreted as:

#32# divided by, #y# plus #12#

which would mean that #32# is divided by the sum of #y and 12#

#32/(y+12)#

OR

It could be read as #32# divided by #y#, plus #12#

#32/y +12#
