Use the correct order of operations to solve the problem below. 42 - 4 × (2 + 2)
do 2+2 first and then it would look like this 42-4 x 4 then do multiplication and it would look like this 42-16 then subtract and it would look like this 26 and thats your answer
ok i just wanted to know if i got it right or not
did you get that as your answer|?
PEMDAS. Always do parentheses first, exponents second, multiplication third, division fourth, adding fifth, and subtraction last. With that, you have your problem: 42-4x(2+2) -Add. 42-4x(4) - Multiply. 42-16 - Now subtract. 26 is now your answer. Hope I helped! Any questions?
