    It equals 22 already so just place a parenthesis in a way where it won't affect the solution.

    3 • [4 – (2 + 5) + 7] B. (3 • 4) – [2 + (5 + 7)] C. [(3 • 4) – 2] + (5 + 7) D. 3 • (4 – 2) + (5 + 7)

    Like for example if you had 6 • 4 + 2, it wouldn't change if it were (6 • 4) + 2.

    Because PEMDAS states that multiplication goes first anyway.

    Just look at your options and find out which one also equals 22.

    Because 3 would be multiplying into the entire parenthesis when it should only be multiplying into 4.
