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

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