    for this:\[\frac{8- 6.2}{5 + 7(0.91)}\] you need to follow BODMAS - have you heard about that?

    in this case the brackets just contain a number - so no actual operation to perform inside the brackets

    the other way is 6.2 divided by 10 is 0.62 double that is 0.62 + 0.62 = 1.24 (sorry I incorrectly stated you halve the result up there - it should be double the result after dividing by 10)
