## shayshayglee5 3 years ago Explain how to solve 8(to the 2nd power)+ 9(12 ÷ 3 • 2) – 7

1. katiebugg

first do the (12/3 x2)

2. henpen

$8^2+\frac{9(12)}{3* 2}-7$ or $8^2+\frac{9(12 *3)}{ 2}-7$?

3. shayshayglee5

That doesn't really make sense what does the problem inside of the parenthesis equal I can figure out the rest.

4. shayshayglee5

It's 8 right?

5. EulerGroupie

8

6. EulerGroupie

What did you get overall?

7. shayshayglee5

577 but I think I did something wrong.

8. EulerGroupie

Yeah, I didn't get that. After you found what's inside you should have: $8^{2}+9(8)-7$

9. EulerGroupie

PEMDAS... you are on E

10. shayshayglee5

So wouldn't it be 64 + 9 x 8 - 7?

11. EulerGroupie

Yes... now M

12. shayshayglee5

64 x 8?

13. telltoamit

9 into 8 first?

14. shayshayglee5

9 x 8?

15. telltoamit

yes

16. EulerGroupie

9x8

17. shayshayglee5

72

18. EulerGroupie

yes 64+72-7

19. EulerGroupie

Now A and S

20. shayshayglee5

129?

21. EulerGroupie

Awesome :D

22. shayshayglee5

Thanks you puppy man! haha

23. EulerGroupie

woof!

24. telltoamit

lol
