thats not 32 it is -8 -52\13*3^2+5

If you want some more insight, here is a video by Khan
http://www.khanacademy.org/video/order-of-operations?topic=developmental-math-1-1
(and the following 2)

- anonymous

this is about order of operations.
1) start with anything inside parentheses
2) moving from left to right do exponents/multiplication/division FIRST, THEN move to addition/subtraction.

-8-52/13x3^2 + 5
= -60/13x9 + 5
= -60/117+5
= -60/122
=-0.491 round off to -0.50
As for your second question:
3 + 4[(8 ÷ 2) + 3]
3 +4[(4) +3]
3 +4[7]
3 +28
31

- anonymous

-8 -52/13*3^2+5 (so first, we'll do the squaring)
-8 - 52 / 13 * 9 +5 (next, let's do the division)
-8 - 4*9+5 (now, multiplication)
-8 - 36 + 5 (no subtract and add, left to right)
-44 + 5 ((finish it off)
-39

Memorize the order of operations. I used to know a mneomic that helped but forgot it lol

- anonymous

3 + 4[(8 ÷ 2) + 3] (first, parentheses, innermost!)
3 + 4 [(4+3)]
3 + 4(7)
3+28
= 31

how do I Evaluate 4 – 7x for x = -6 how do I do this ?

- anonymous

just subsitute -6 in for everytime you see an X.
so:
4 - 7(-6)

- anonymous

4-7x
So, 4-7(-6)
4+42=46

- anonymous

and then you can solve (remember to do the parentheses first.
4 - (-42)
4+ 42 = 46

see I never went to high school I ended up going to home school for my high school year and now Im in college and trying to learn all this math
:( :(

- anonymous

thank you all you have been a very big help to me :)

- anonymous

do you understand how we worked the problems out?

- anonymous

yes now I do a little bit better my only other one I cant figure out is (6÷ 3) + 4(6÷2)2

- anonymous

that last two is ^2

- anonymous

so would I divid first

- anonymous

\[6\div3+4(6\div2)^{2}\]
like that??

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

okay, so the first thing to look for are parentheses. this means you have to do the 6 / 2 FIRST!
what is 6/2?

- anonymous

3

- anonymous

good! so now we have this: 6÷3+4(3)^2
next, do the exponenet. 3^2 = ??

- anonymous

6

- anonymous

Answer is: 2+4(3)^2 or 2 +4(9) = 2 + 36 = 38

- anonymous

3^2 = 3*3 = ??

- anonymous

9 right?

- anonymous

yup!

- anonymous

Yes 3^2 is square of 3.

- anonymous

great! so now we have this: 6÷3+4(9)
next, you work from LEFT to RIGHT.... do the division and mutliplication first...
so what is 6/3 = ?? and what is 4*9 = ???

- anonymous

6\3=2 4*9=36 right

- anonymous

awesome. now you can put it all together. 2 + 36 = ?? and that's your answer!

- anonymous

38

- anonymous

great! did that make sense?

- anonymous

yes it did thank you so much !!!!!!!!!

- anonymous

no problem.
