Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My textbook says 13.13 so I was wondering how they got that. Can you show me/ Tell me how you got that answer because I'm kinda confused...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its easy bc its basic order of operations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for this:\[\frac{8 6.2}{5 + 7(0.91)}\] you need to follow BODMAS  have you heard about that?

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is known by other names as well, see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_operations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok let me check it out hold on

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look at the 2nd section "The standard order of operations"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good  so first thing to attack is the brackets

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in this case the brackets just contain a number  so no actual operation to perform inside the brackets

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we can therefore remove the brackets to end up with:\[\frac{8 6.2}{5 + 7(0.91)}=\frac{8 6.2}{5 + 7*0.91}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmm ok im confused...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets jus concentrate on the denominator for now, we had:\[5+7(0.91)\]correct?

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now note that a(b) simply means a*b  agreed?

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we can say that:\[5+7(0.91)=5+7*0.91\]

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1does that make sense now?

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good  now what should the next set of operations be?

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we have handled the brackets

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry didnt mean to put >

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it should be exponents and roots next  but you do not have any here so we go to the next one: multiplication an division

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what is 7 * 0.91 = ?

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correct, so now we end up with:\[\frac{8 6.2}{5 + 7(0.91)}=\frac{8 6.2}{5 + 7*0.91}=\frac{8 6.2}{5 + 6.37}\]now most people get confused here because they think the next thing to do is the division

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wouldnt you add? or subtract?

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but what you need to remember is that you go through BODMAS for the numerator and the denominator seperately

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hang on a second  I think I misread your question

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I believe it was this instead:\[8 6.2 \div 5 + 7(0.91)\]

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, sorry I originally interpreted it as:\((8 6.2) \div (5 + 7(0.91))\)

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so lets start again  ok?

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[8 6.2 \div 5 + 7(0.91)\]first step  brackets to get:\[8 6.2 \div 5 + 7(0.91)=8 6.2 \div 5 + 7*0.91\]next is exponents/root but we have none next is multiplication/division  we have both, so you did 7*0.91 = 6.37\[8 6.2 \div 5 + 6.37\]

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so next we should do what?

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope  have a closer look at what is still left

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like left to right but switch add with division

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it should be division next

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what is 6.2 divided by 5 = ?

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(a quick trick to divide by 5 is to divide by 10 and then halve the result)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok :) so now how do i do it ? :

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the /quick/ method or using long division like you attempted up there?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or like were did i mess up

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my decimal messed me up..

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the 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)

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, so we now have:\[8 6.2 \div 5 + 6.37=81.24+6.37\]

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the rest should now be straight forward

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but be careful with the signs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got this part let me draw it for you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1remember the 1.24 has a minus sign next to it

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so this is really "1.24 + 6.37"

anonymous
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no thats not a negative its a minus

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so it might be better to first do "8  1.24"

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1think of it in this way:\[8 6.2 \div 5 + 6.37=81.24+6.37=8+(1.24)+6.37\]

asnaseer
 4 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I was trying to explain why you had to do "1.24 + 6.37" previously

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yaaa i got it my text book says that but i needed to work it out thank you!!!!!

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes  that is the correct answer
