Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know that part but why subtract and then do the division when it's supposed to be the opposite. Can't it be 99=0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it can't be 99 because the order of operation (evaluation) is from left to right. so, 92 will be evaluated first, not 2+7
