the difference of 5 and 1 means subtract 2 times that amount means multiply. so you get 2 * (5-1) = 2*4 = 8

as for the 5 times 1 minus 2, exactly how was that written?

times happens before minus, so then it would be (5*1) -2 = 4-2 = 2 maybe.

going by order of operations multiplication comes first so it would be 5(1)-2 so 5-2 or 3
