11 - 8 รท (1/3 + 1/5)

That is where I say 3/15 +5/15=8/15
anonymous
  • anonymous
Am I right?
radar
  • radar
Clear the parenthesis: (5/15+3/15)= 8/15 Now the problem looks like this \[11-8\div8/15\] Remember the order of operations......division has priority over addition so now: 11 -(8 x15/8) 11 - 15=-4

Yes you added the part in the parenthesis correctly.
