    I got 58 too. all by doing PEMDAS ... with the bracket and then do what's in the bracket first. . . what is up with the choices given?

    is there a none of the above as a choice? because I would pick that. the calculators I'm using all point to 58 as well.

    I've done it by hand and then confirm with wolfram or some other PEMDAS calculator out there.

    maybe if we dont do pemdas or reverse it we'd get one of their answers, so that's what im trying to do

    maybe whoever came up with the choices didn't even do the problem in the first place.

    well.. i had to guess because that's pretty much all i can do. the teachers dont reply as fast.

    well I will also complain to the teacher. Because if you're marked wrong, that's unfair. Some teachers don't do their jobs correctly, and it expands to the university level. I've been there.
