Than why would my teacher even ask?

is the original question\[{30\over5(31)}4\]? or is it just as you printed it?

Its just as i put it

it could be\[{30\over5}(31)4\]if the notation is unclear

well, if the division symbol is as you have it, then I say no mistakes are made and I cannot read your teacher's mind. Anybody see a problem with my observation?

if there is a mistake it would be that Line 1 30 ÷ 5(3  1)  4 Line 2 30 ÷ 5(2)  4 should lead to 60÷54 but that seems extraneous... I'm gonna say no mistakes.

Its line 3.. I have to use PEMDAS to do this problem..

It should look like this when done correct

It would be line 3 because she or he forgot to divide 30 by 5 it should look like this. 30/5(32)4 30/5(2)4 5(2)4 6

PEMDAS has to be done from left to right

30/5(32)4 30/5(2)4 does not lead to 5(2)4 no matter how you slice it, so that makes no sense...

30/5(2)4 = 6(2)4 if your working strictly from lt to rt
 2 years ago

TuringTest Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
you misprinted the problem as you just noticed 30/5(31)4 30/5(2)4 does not lead to 5(2)4 no matter how you slice it, so that makes no sense...

cwrw's interpretation is possible, but it means the original question is the second option I posted above. this is why the division symbol "÷" is ridiculously vague

your typo didn't matter, we all ignored it and knew what you meant

I guess go with cwrw's answer. again, bad question WAY too vague

It would be line 3 because she did not do it right.. she did 5(2) before she did 30/5 on line two witch makes line three incorrect and if she got line three incorrect everything below would be incorrect to. it should look like this. 30/5(31)4 30/5(2)4 6(2)4 124 8

right! good job but please take note of what we are saying about how vague this question is.

Noo no no i agree with you

should be written as\[\frac{30}{5}(31)4\]to get this answer...
