44 minutes or 11:16am

Step-by-step explanation:

you need to convert everything into minutes

12 noon = 12×60=720 minutes

9am=9×60=540 minutes

let x= number of minutes before noon

the time now is 12noon -x =720-x minutes

48 minutes ago it was 720-x-48 minutes

720-x-48=540+2x

720-48-540=2x+x

132=3x

x=132/3

x=44 minutes

x=44minutes or 11:16 am

HOPE IT HELPS U!!!
