Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1need to do the operations in the bracket first.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so taking the bracket first.. we noticed that there is a parenthesis so we need to compute 0.51.4 first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, this is a question of knowing PEDMAS/ BEDMAS, what ever the kids call it these days.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1US education system uses PEMDAS but often forget that when there is [ () ] the bracket is taken first into consideration and then do the problem in (I)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm just waiting for the OP to respond to what's 0.51.4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't want to be one of those people with A is the answer or 1239 here's the link to an online calculator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thanks :). I caught someone using an algebra calculator and citing it as the source of the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By the way, PEDMAS stands for P = parenthesis E = exponents D = division M = multiplication A = addition S = subtraction Going in that order for the operation :P, just a little note if OP doesn't know haha.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so what is it or r u guys helping me solve it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we're helping you solve it \[4.5[2x(0.51.4)] \] we consider the bracket first then since there is a () and P is present we need to solve 0.51.4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what is 0.51.4 ?

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we need to distribute the negative so 0.9 becomes positive

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[4.5[2x+0.9]\] we can't combine 2x and 0.9 because x is a variable and we have a constant (a number) so we can go ahead and distribute the 4.5 throughout the whole equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what is 4.5(2x) same as 4.5 times 2x and 4.5 x 0.9

UsukiDoll

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you just have to compute 4.5 x 0.9 and 4.5(2x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and then by doing those computations... this is the answer 9x4.05
