Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got 120. Is that right? With that, it's now 120/2. Simplified, 60/1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Following pemdas, you'd do parenthesis first so "142" then exponent, so 12^2, which is 144. Then multiply by 5, you get 720.
