    A 48 Probably.
    Making a Trip Attack

    Make an unarmed melee touch attack against your target. This provokes an attack of opportunity from your target as normal for unarmed attacks.
    A creature making a melee attack with a natural weapon is considered armed and does not provoke attacks of opportunity.
    Unless the creature has a natural weapon which is specifically a tripping weapon, it uses an unarmed attack rather than its natural weapons when making a trip attempt. Only a natural weapon attack (such as a Wolf's bite) other than an unarmed strike will normally avoid provoking an AoO when making a trip attempt.

    If a creature has Improved Unarmed Strike, the normal behavior is to not provoke AoOs.
    Benefit: You are considered to be armed even when unarmed —that is, you do not provoke attacks or opportunity from armed opponents when you attack them while unarmed.
    Once you have this feat, unarmed attacks (including trip attacks) will not provoke AoOs.
