Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you help me with a few mor like this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sure. I've noticed that you've been posting similar questions though. Just remember the order of operations and BODMAS and you'll be fine :) And that is not quite the answer. 6 times 8 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's correct :) Also, if you don't understand BODMAS, it's the same as PEMDAS http://prntscr.com/86271w < super helpful reference with order of operations!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Which placement of grouping symbols in the expression gives it a value of 22? 3 • 4 – 2 + 5 +7 A. 3 • [4 – (2 + 5) + 7] B. (3 • 4) – [2 + (5 + 7)] C. [(3 • 4) – 2] + (5 + 7) D. 3 • (4 – 2) + (5 + 7)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Try each choice using the correct order of operations, and see which one gives you the answer you need.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What does the O mean in BODMAS?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The way to do a problem like this is to do one step at a time and writing everything else each step. Of course, you need to follow PEMDAS for each step. 6 • [(32 − 8) ÷ 4 + 2] = = 6 • [24 ÷ 4 + 2] = 6 • [6 + 2] = 6 • 8 = 48 By writing everything each step, you don't forget any operation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also, it is important to understand PEMDAS properly. Most people don't know how it works.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jpharper Let's work through each choice of the second problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A. 3 • [4 – (2 + 5) + 7] = Innermost parentheses first: = 3 • [4 – 7 + 7] We still have the square parentheses, so we do that next.

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Inside the square brackets, we have a subtraction and an addition. In PEMDAS, AS means addition, Subtraction. Those two operations are the same level of priority, so we do them in the order they appear from left to right. = 3 • [3 + 7] = 3 • 4 = 12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is the answer [(3 • 4) – 2] + (5 + 7)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is what I meant by understanding PEMDAS properly. Do operations of each line before the next line below. P  parentheses E  exponents MD  multiplications and divisions in the order they appear from left to right AS  additions and subtractions in the order they appear from left to right

mathstudent55

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Many people think that PEMDAS means doing the operations in the order below, but that is incorrect. P  parentheses \ E  exponents \ M  multiplications \ D  divisions / The PEMDAS shown to the left is incorrect. A  additions / S subtractions / The correct order is what I wrote in the previous response above with MD in one line and AS in one line.
