|dw:1358999561759:dw| is this what u mean?

2. erniellyd28

yes

3. Goten77

basically you do the part inside the paranthesis 1st and get that number..... and on step 2 you can all ready do the 1.2 squared part then do the .3 times the 3.1 and add that to the 1.44 did you need help on the elementary math part to?

5. erniellyd28

yes please if its not to much trouble :)

6. Goten77

|dw:1359000071157:dw| 1.2 x 1.2 is just 1.44 its just that little multiplication step

7. Goten77

so now we have the hard part.... |dw:1359000427173:dw| now what happens is you change it into that... but also when you get to the last part... you just divide the bottom by 10 getting it divided by 1 and anything divided by 1 is itself... but the 9.3 then just moves the decimal point over 1 spot... so you get .93

8. Goten77

so now were basically done and just have .93 + 1.44 |dw:1359000673805:dw|
