Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0 (1253+14) is your solution. jump the negative into the box and you get 1253+14 and when you do the addiction and subtractions. You will get your solution of positive 27.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer is correct but the explanation of jumping the negative into the box had an error in the results. You get 12+5314 Note the differtence in the signs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I change that solution! actually the solution is D. because if you add 14 plus positive 53 you'll get postive 41 and then subtract 14 from that. you will get your solution of postive 27.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Cutie0430 Look closely at choice a. Think of that  sign to the left as a 1 then it would look like this: 1(1253+14) This means when you clear the parenthesis you are simply multplying each number by a 1. Remember the rule of multiplying bhy signs *_ =+ +* =  so you get 12+5314 when you combine the 12 and 14 you get 26 now combine that with the +53 you will get the result you are looking for

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Radar () and [] are not the same things. One is paranthesis one is module and they operate differently as well. (1) = 1 but [1] = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i believe thats what she meant. otherwise why not just use parentheses? Well i might be wrong.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know what level Cutie is operating at. I will research the term "module" and the symbol [].. I have been wrong many times and this may be one of those times LOL
