Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so (2/3) * (15.5 + (24) ) + (18) becomes (2/3) * 8.5 18 order of operations: do multiply first what is 2*8.5 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. but 2/3 means (or at least you can interpret it as) multiply by 2, then divide by 3 btw, after we are done , none of the choices match the number we get. Are you sure there is no typo?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(2 * 8.5)/3 = 17/3 now we have (2/3) * (15.5 + (24) ) + (18) (2/3) * 8.5  18 17/3  18 we can change 18 to 3*18/3 so the problem is \[  \frac{17}{3}  \frac{54}{3} \]
