    well the answer right now it is 16 if you move the parentheses over to cover the 5+5 x part then your answer would change to 40/30 so the parentheses are a big factor in the answer

    Changing the parentheses affects the whole equation very much. For example if you moved the parentheses to infront of the first 5 then your answer would change from 16 to 40/30.
